President Jacob Zuma Portrait Commission
In February 2013, I was commissioned by the Parker, Shange and Brosnihan families to do a portrait of our president Jacob Zuma. The portrait was presented to His Excellency as a gift on his birthday celebrations. It was an honour to work on this portrait & I'm so grateful to have been given an opportunity like this. Special thanks goes to Mr.Greg Lumley for allowing me to use one of his photographs of Mr.Zuma as reference for my illustration. Please take a look at his splendid photography work : http://www.greglumley.com
The drawing was done on Aquarelle Arches Hot Press paper with a 0.5mm Faber Castelle 2B clutch pencil and a 0.35mm.
