About this project

Back in 1983, I became fascinated and moved by the story of Nelson Mandela.  His long term human rights struggle and political imprisonment showed his courage and impassioned commitment to freedom, and inspired me to create a series of drawings of the man.

Now some 30 years later, I want to create a new series of 101 drawings of Mandela as a way to explore the meditative and focused nature of this man's brilliant path from rebel prisoner to world leader.

I hope you can join me in this celebration of Nelson Mandela!

I will begin this journey shortly after successful funding, and complete the 101 drawings of Mandela in 30 days.  Funds will be used to cover costs of art supplies, mailing materials, printing, and rewards delivery.

My project video illustrates how I currently use line and gesture to capture what I see and experience.  This will be my basic technical approach to this project...the music of what happens!

Thanks in advance for your collaboration on this project! - Vincent
