Ball point pen on the morning newsprint 

I will continue on Monday profiling the team behind Barack Obama.

Today I wanted to take a moment to remember Robert F. Kennedy. On June 5th 1968 he was shot by Sirhan Sirhan at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles after winning California's Primary election that day. He died the following day-forthy years ago today.

    wonderful portrait of him! It seems like it was just yesterday...doesn't seem possible. Lovely tribute.

    Very nice. I really admire your pen on newsprint portraits. The immediacy, the life within the marks, and the composition within the headlines is very engaging and speaks volumes. Thanks for your comment. Allan

    A beautiful portrait. He's never really far from us as long as we remember him.
