Originally uploaded by carpe icthus.

Last May, I did some work with the Student Publishing Initiative, a fantastic institution that helps students make their own publications -- and we're talking real, page-turner books, not student newspapers. One of the projects was with Horizon Academy in Rikers Island Jail, and I recently found out that they're using my work to help convice inmates to go to school.

That is just so unbelievably freaking cool. I also recently completed a project that was the centerpiece of a successful proposal to get a school more than $200 million in badly needed funds, but something about this tugs at my heartstrings even more.

I've gotten publication clearance for the Rikers images, but for this use I figured I'd use an image that keeps the inmates anonymous.
