Alex Fine – Baltimore City Paper

I illustrated the cover of this week’s Baltimore City Paper.  The illustration refers to an article about a book written by a member of a notorious Baltimore gang.  While still in prison, he wrote the book as a guide for African Americans living in low income neighborhoods to elevate themselves without using violence and criminal activity.  Unfortunately the writer had less noble intentions than he let on but the book as it is written still sends a good message that the writer of the article explains.
