Drawing the Games: Pictures by Nicholas GarlandOne year on from the London Olympics, City Hall hosts an exhibition of drawings by illustrator, political cartoonist and artist in residence at the Games, Nicholas Garland. Commissioned by the Mayor of London to capture the colour and spirit of the Games, the artist spent the summer documenting the sporting action, crowds and cultural highlights, from the Opening to the Closing Ceremonies. Drawing the Games presents a series of evocative pictures by Garland and - with all of the pictures on sale and published in a book - they're a way of keeping the memory of the Games alive.
