A deeper shade of Blue.

I got a nice email from Philadelphia artist Adam Garcia last week, after he was commissioned to do an illustration of local hip hop group Blue Scholars. He chose to base the image on a photograph I took of Geo and Sabzi in 2005, and wanted to make sure I knew about it, and if I'd like to be credited for the source material. I was a little shocked, and completely delighted, because I've had images appropriated and altered in the past with no contact or permissions given. Needless to say, I gave him two big thumbs up, and the art turned out fantastic.
