Ali

The was no one like Muhammad Ali, before or since. A hugely, significant human being, he stirred up everything he touched: civil rights, justice, imperialism, the media, rap and sports marketing. An astounding, beautiful athlete who was robbed of his true potential and disappointingly, destroyed himself trying to compensate. I made the line drawing for this work 40 odd years ago and recently transferred it to Adobe Illustrator and added colour.
