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!
