The piece was originally created as part of an assignment for a graphic illustration class I attended at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh.  The idea was the mix animals with history in a creative way.  The butterflies emerging from Marin Luther King Jr.'s mouth symbolize his ability to create change with his words.  This piece was purchased by nationally recognized ad agency ANIMAL in Pittsburgh, PA.
