Nelson Mandela Memorial

I sketched these at San Francisco City Hall December 11th at the memorial for Nelson Mandela. The rotunda had a giant photo of Mandela covering the arch at the top of the grand staircase. The Bay Area played a big part in the anti-apartheid movement. In 1986, California became the largest government in the U.S. to require divestment of South Africa-related investments - $11 billion at the time.


  1. love these, cathy--your use of line & color. did our session at brennan's help with the face?

  2. This is so spare and color only where you need it - I love them! I'm glad you got to the memorial, he was certainly an admirable man who accomplished much.
