$2 Portrait Project Gets Noticed

Earlier today, Carlos Cisneros of The Bay Area Native contacted me asking if he could use one of my Black and White Dollar Portraits (BW$P) in an article he was putting together.  I didn’t have much information on what the article was going to be about, but gladly agreed. Well, it looks like Melissa Brooks was […]
