Sam...thank you for your kind words. Really glad you dug the sketches. S.A. was an amazing place with amazing people and I feel fortunate to have had the chance to spend some time there and check it out. I'd like to publish a book of my sketches at some point...and I will very likely include the South African collection with them when that happens!
