1999: JFK Jr. Memorial Shrine. 30 North Moore Street. NYC.

Drawn on-site on one the day after JFK Jr. and his wife were lost in a plane crash. I spent a couple of hourse watching the crowd and perusing the makeshift memorial (which grew over the course of repeat visits on a few days). I also got the chance to do some drawings and talk to a lot of people about the events leading up to it. I even got interviewed by Secret Service guys with ear monitors and those mirrored aviator shades...just like in the movies.
