Ashin Kovida for The Journal
posted: February 18, 2008
Here's a portrait I did last week for Kate LaVoie at the Wall Street Journal of Ashin Kovida, a young activist monk who helped organize protests in Mayanmar after the police there fired warning shots at monks in September.

One of my sketches featured the Shwedagon temple in Yangon, where he led daily protests, and that's the one they chose to run with.
