99% NO. 47 (Mr. Phoenix's Wife)
Description

Huckaby's  The 99% Project apart of an installation of 101 Lithographic Portraits Produced at Brandywine Workshop and Archives. He began this series by drawing family members and individuals he encountered near his neighborhood, Huckaby focuses less on locale than on the process of engaging with people who might otherwise be marginalized in society.
