I dreamed of Mandela’s Africa (by tsevis)
I always wanted to create a tribute portrait for Nelson Mandela. For me he is a true legend. The most inspiring leader alive. So when my old colleague at Adobe Mo Jogie asked to participate to the Mandela95 Poster Project, I felt that this was the chance I was looking for. So this is a poster created for the Mandela95 Poster Project, an initiative of Jacques Lange and Mohammed Jogie. I used the shapes of all African countries and I created a new map-portrait of Mandela-Africa. You can read more about the project on AIGA Africa Facebook page.

Happy 95th birthday Madiba. You are always a great inspiration!
