I made this portrait of Sitting Bull on my iPad Pro with Adobe Draw in Woodcut style.
Sitting Bull was a Hunkpapa Lakota leader who defeated General George Armstrong Custer during the Battle of Little BigHorn.
He led his people during years of resistance to United States government policies. He was killed by Indian agency police on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation during an attempt to arrest him, at a time when authorities feared that he would join the Ghost Dance movement.
