▫ Monday, January 18, 2016 was a Federal Holiday, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, – It felt appropriated to pullout “The Civil Rights Reader” book from my archive shelve. Prior creating the illustration I submitted few pencil ideas sketches, they were presented to a school class. Their choice convinced the published staff it was the right pick. Because it was a none traditional way how this topic was being portraited it was not so obvious to have it accepted. But why wanting to be ‘slave’ of deja-vu imagery while wanting to express specificaly the theme of ‘freedom’… besides, my picture was inspired by documented historical facts.
