  1. Hello Michael. I hope that you remember me. You did a logo for my business at the time which was College Keepsakes. You also did an original painting for me of Morehouse College in 1995. Would love to talk with you. Have not seen you since I was in In. IN. E-mail me back as to how I can get up with you.
