    Aww crap. I didn’t know, and had only noticed your pic and not the title- but it was enough to make the penny drop. I love the sketch. Beautiful, inspiring man.

    I just heard this morning that Ali passed away – he had Parkinson’s like my dad – and I think this style is suited to his athletic movement. Wonderful and he flew like a butterfly …
