I hastily painted this portrait today in response to Illustration Friday’s topic of the week: Homage. I have been wanting to depict Nelson Mandela for some time and he is as deserving of homage as any of us for his self sacrifice and humanitarian deeds. Respect.

    Wow, wonderful likeness. The portrait not only depicts power, but peace and joy. I love the warm colors in the background, too. You did a great job paying him homage.
