mr casby

this is an old one but sometimes its good to look back. a friend of mine had a book of portraits of various people. this one was adapted from a photo of william casby, one of the last survivors of that horrible plague of slavery to come out of the south.
the photo was taken in the 60's. i recreated it in the late 90's on some metal doors that i buffed yellow first.
