Mandela's Tea Party

I wonder if Mandela has tea parties? And if he did, whom would he invite? I imagine the children of South Africa would love to receive a gilt-edged invitation from the former president.

The editors at Oxford University Press requested an illustration showing Mandela at a party with several school children. It was such fun drawing Mandela in one of his characteristically wild shirts partying with a handful of kids.

I love these little flights of fancy I get to indulge in when I draw.

And... more on the Oxford commission shortly.
