Los Angeles CityBeat



Here is a new cover illustration I just completed with the wonderful people at the Los Angeles CityBeat. It's an illustration based on the cover story, discussing the growing epidemic of homeless children, throughout the country, but geographically focused on the ruins of Skid Row. Thousands of children are living in these traumatic situations, working through their extremely difficult day to day lives, along with surviving the struggles of attending elementary and middle school. The "No Child Left Behind" campaign is shown to still leaving these kids with close to no assistance, leaving them to fend for themselves...hence the idea of these kids, "missing the boat".
