This series of seven large charcoal drawings consists of neighbors and friends of mine from the Brightmoor neighborhood in northwest Detroit. Although Brightmoor has not experienced the same level of revitalization seen in downtown Detroit, it nevertheless sports bright spots of resilience and creative energy. These portraits are my attempt to show the commitment, hope, strength, and struggle behind the slow rebuilding of this urban outpost.
