Alhambra Source # 2

A few months ago I did an illustration for the Alhambra Source on an article about disappearing homes in Alhambra. This is the illustration and a link to that article:

I just finished another article on the dangers of biking in cities without bike lanes. The article hasn't been posted yet, but here are the sketches I sent and the finished illustration:

" Upbeat" poem by Rasethamir El

At MICA there is this project with the MTA and a few other folks where we take poems written by local school children and create illustrations based off those poems. This project is called "Words on Wheels." The chosen poem/illustrations are then integrated into the MTA system by being displayed in busses so that passengers can gawk at them.

My poem is titled "Upbeat" and it was written by Rasethamir El (3rd Grade) who is a student at Windsor Hills Elementary and Middle School.
Here is the poem:
You don't have to fight.
Take flight to right.
Don't use your hands.
Be the better man.
Use verbals to get
Through your hurdles!
Here's what I came up with. I hope Rasethamir thinks its okay.
