I met the subject of this portrait at The Art of Living Black (TAOLB) Open Studios Weekend at Mills College. They were with Roxana Dhada, a Bay Area artist and zine maker. I first met Roxana at the 2013 East Bay Alternative Book and Zine Fest. It was wonderful to run into my fellow artist at our 2015 open studios event.
At TAOLB at Mills, her very tall friend allowed me to photograph them for later inclusion in my online sketchbook.
