1001 Black Men–#637



This drawing from the What Do Brothas Do All Day ‘zine was a special challenge. My goal was to recall the men I’ve encountered at my favorite local grocery store and to depict them in a way that would make clear that they were food shopping, but without actually representing the store itself in the background. Instead, the background image is a repeating image of a cluster of fresh vegetables, a simple pattern that allows the figures to fully dominate the foreground, despite the limited color palette.
