SKETCHES OF HISTORY
As a way of practicing caricatures and faces, I decided to challenge myself to draw one person a day, for the month of February. Each year I post a historical tidbit for Black History month, I decided to kick it up a notch by adding illustrations. Well, it grew and I created the hashtag #SketchesofHistory, which can be searched on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr or any search engine. Thanks to everyone supporting and motivating me, I am in the process of working on the first volume of an art book. Below are the first 29 sketches that started it all. I'm not stopping at February, so follow the hashtag to keep up!
"You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas."
"My body is very different from most of the dancers I dance with. My hair is different than most I dance with. But I didn't let that stop me. Black girls rock and CAN be ballerinas."
"You're a shining star, no matter who you are. Shining bring to see, what you can truly be."

"I look at it like this: I was like the Jackie Robinson of football. A black quarterback was unheard of before I hit the pros"
"The secret to success is good leadership, and good leadership is all about making the lives of your team members or workers better."
