Kareem's Goggles 

paper piece made out of cardstock, color pencil and adhesive

This work is a portrait of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the career leader in points in NBA history. I placed the word “goggles” over his goggles because they are iconic and I'm fascinated about how the viewer reinterprets the physical goggles. - Michael C. Thorpe
