my friend sybil is an incredible person. she is my best example of a person who cares globally as well as personally. for her birthday last year, i agreed to help her make a book to raise money to find a cure for AIDS. her idea was to bike ride across alaska. she kept a journal of her training and thoughts for almost a year before the actual ride. she published the journal and donated the proceeds to this cause. these drawings are a few of the illustrations that i did for her journal. my favorite is the one of a prostitute knitting booties. sybil described this scene to me. it occured during a trip she took to mexico to distribute condoms and information about AIDS.
