Sugar Cane Root System

I worked on this illustration as a fundraiser; with all proceeds going to Reggie Moore and his organization, Convict Leasing and Labor Project. He came to a SURJ (Showing Up For Racial Justice) HTX event this morning, 'Sugarland Heritage? Slavery & Convict Leasing in our own backyard'. A large copy of the print was purchased for the proposed museum, and all of the prints sold out.
