As nobody really knows who "Johannes" was, this city is known by many names - Joburg, Egoli, Joeys, Jozi - though some say that's like calling your Rottweiler 'Fluffy'...
Two occasions where I've been out for coffee and a sketch with friends lately, the first at a pavement café in Braamfontein, after seeing the wonderful William Kentridge tapestries exhibition at the Wits Art Museum - maybe that is what moved me to use a soft pencil instead of my usual pen? I tried out a new white gel pen on the metalwork on the old Lord Milner Hotel across the street.
And in the Exclusive Books store in newly revamped Rosebank Mall - more chat than sketching went on here!
