 Under "Sketches" I put some drawings I did on Emile Griffith, famous boxer and holder of some world championship titles. This phrase is from him: " I kill a man and most people understand and forgive me. However, I love a man, and to so many people this is an unforgivable sin; this makes me an evil person."
