Artwork for "Barrio, Respira"

“Barrio, respira” by Vicko Alvarez [ScholaR Comics] was created as a commission for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO). The piece depicts individuals of a community coming together to transform an area overtaken by concrete into an area capable of growing a larger than life sunflower.
