This series is a collaboration with Jonathan Frey. These portraits are drawn from the cover of the tabloid Tri-Cities Busted, a weekly publication consisting of local mug shots from northeast Tennessee. The drawings consider the relationship of these individuals to the local community, the notion of local celebrity, and the visceral quality of the mug shot.
