Reportage Drawing at Oakland City Hall (photos)

This is beyond cool!!! I found this photo searching my name on google images. A photographer from "Youth Radio" snapped this shot of me doing a reportage drawing at Oakland City Hall minutes after Mehserle verdict was announced. The photo was posted on Flickr. I remember lots of photographers and news casters approaching me while I was drawing. I was extremely nervous because I knew at any moment there could have been a deadly stampede. This is truly a classic shot :)
