An annual project paying tribute to the past year’s fallen heroes and icons, Faces Of Death (F.O.D.) features portrait drawings from countless international artists culled together into ever-evolving iterations of limited edition prints. Brooklyn-based artist, Michael Hambouz, was passed the management torch in 2013 by project founder Milton Carter. In the spirit of respecting spirits, F.O.D. maintains a not-for-profit philosophy—all print sales cover production/release event expenses and help sustain the project, now in its 21st year. All are welcome to participate.
