    Published:
I was invited to collaborate creating an illustrated portratit of Corey Mickins, who was shot a dozen times in his favorite Harlem restaurant by plainclothes officers on March 13, 2007. Police claim Corey Mickins had a gun, yet there were no fingerprints on the alleged weapon. The portrait was displayed in a march in Union Square on the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, October 22nd, 2014.
