sherman alexie is the author of several books including The Toughest Indian in the World and The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven. he also wrote the movie, Smoke Signals, and directed The Business of Fancydancing.

i drew his portrait for the cover of alibi magazine. i painted him as though he were telling stories at a campfire as a little nod to the spirit of his novels and his career as a storyteller.
