In memory of Ed Koch (December 12, 1924 – February 1, 2013).

"Ed Koch loved graphic art. He saw my drawings in May of 2011, invited me to his law office, Bryan Cave LLP, and posed for Koch – Mayor of the City of New York. About four months later the portrait was finished and I invited him to look at it. He was pleased, 'I love the blue lines! This drawing looks like me.'"   Dmitry Borshch
