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.
