Illustrating Nelson Mandela

As the world has been collectively celebrating the life of Nelson Mandela, illustrators might be particularly interested in this BBC video of artist Kadir Nelson talking about his illustrations of Mandela for both the New Yorker and his recent picture book about Mandela. There's also a nice write-up on the New Yorker's online blog about the Mandela cover illustration, along with a slide-show from Kadir's book.
