Emmett Till's Secret Witness

This is my first published piece. I created the book cover to Bonnie Blue's Emmett Till's Secret Witness. I did the piece in charcoal to give it a newspaper feel. It was nice to work on a traditional drawing in the middle of my messy and colorful Maggot Brain style. You just need to have a good balance sometimes.

Some sketches below. As you can see I took elements from a couple for the final drawing.
