Veronica De Jesus worked on memorial drawings for 12 years. From 2004-2016, the artist commemorated people she knew or who inspired her in some way. De Jesus made over 300 portraits, most of which were exhibited in the window of Dog-Eared Books in the Mission District of San Francisco. The project was beloved, and now is recalled by those sidewalk-passerbys who slowed down and took a moment to remember.

People are a light to Love offers a summation of the completed memorial project. The publication, like much of De Jesus’s work, reflects on loss and how it plays out over time.
