BEHIND THE SCENES
"Conveying the police shooting of James Harrison accurately and artistically was very challenging. Repeatedly watching the body cam footage was the hardest part. After viewing the video several times I was horrified by what I saw. What I also found horrifying were the things I didn't see like compassion, or a rush to save Mr. Harrison's life. These are the things that were on my mind when deciding how to approach the illustrations. I didn't want the focus of the art to be about the individual cops involved, so I decided to use crime scene tape as a symbol of policing."
