This is was my second attempt at sketching and then turning that sketch into a vector. I love playing around with negative space. The shorts, belt, some hair highlights, and the purse all play with negative space. As you pick the color of your choice these elements embrace those colors. Take a look. I made this a long time ago but now it means even more than what it meant when I made it. Promote diversity.

On April 4th, 1967 (one year to the day before his assassination) Martin Luther King Jr. gave his "Beyond Vietnam" speech. It was a speech against the use of the underprivileged and undereducated in the Vietnam war. He argued that young black men were being sent to die in Vietnam for liberties that they themselves did not have in the US. In that speech, he famously said, "There comes a time when silence is betrayal." Stand up for what you know is right and true.
