I’m contributing eleven portraits to an upcoming book It’s all about collective bargaining and how it can be used by more than just labor unions, and Deloris is one of workers whose story will be featured in the book—along with Allyson, Bettie, Cynthia, Heather, Jeff, Kimberly, Lidia, Rubynell, Sanchioni, Sarita, and Smiley.

You can see the making of Deloris’ portrait in this blog post, which also explains how I mix colors to represent different skin tones. For more about Deloris and my encounter with her, check out this blog post.
