The Great Bennah

No, he’s not some Brooklyn hipster battle-rapper…he’s Benny Leonard, former lightweight boxing champion and the original Ghetto Wizard (when the L.E.S. was still a ghetto a not a hookah-bar hotspot). This portrait is a warm-up for, what I hope to be, a series of stories featuring Benny and second generation tenement life in New York. That is, if I can climb from beneath this pile of graphic work and find my drawing table again….it’s here somewhere.
