I don't know this young man personally but this was one of the portraits commissioned awhile ago for a kickstarte campaign I ran. This and a copy of my book was a gift for the contribution. If I recall though, this little one is both Chicano (dad) and African American (mom). His name? I'm glad you asked! He was named after the Zulu Nation (Hip hop community started in the BX, now world wide) and the legendary Shaka Zulu.
If you or someone you know is interested in commissioning a portrait of a child, please tell them to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out my Etsy page for rates.
