A black and white illustration of a party scene. A large crowd of people are dancing in the background and more people are walking down a stairway. Text at the top of the image reads “I NEVER WOULD HAVE GUESSED IT BUT TONIGHT WOULD BECOME THE TURNING POINT IN MY LIFE.” Two men are in the foreground next to a record player. The person on the left is wearing a black hat. Both men are wearing jackets. Speech bubbles are above their heads. The speech bubble above the man on the right is slightly higher and says “YO Vic! I WICH THERE WAS A WAY TO KEEP THE MUSIC GOING INSTEAD OF STOPPING AFTER EACH RECORD.” The speech bubble above the man in the hat reads “IT’LL NEVER HAPPEN.” The picture is in a wood frame. A white label with black text is on the back of the frame at the bottom. It reads “CORP ART / PICTURE FRAMING / PRESIDENTIAL CORPORATE / 888-CORPART / WW.CORPART.NET / If Walls Could Talk, They’d ask For Us.” Handwritten in graphite on the back of the frame at top is “DAWUD ANYABWILE / “BROTHERMAN #11” / ORIGINAL PAGE / 1995 / INK ON BRISTOL / BROTHERMANCOMICS.COM.”
