Didn't we do well last year? We confounded expectations, built a new Olympic Park that was finished on time, hosted the summer Olympics and Paralympics and collected a pile of medals into the bargain. So why not celebrate and commemorate the occasion in art this July?

Political cartoonist Nicholas Garland was commissioned by Boris Johnson to capture the Games; an event Garland has recorded using various mediums: gouache, woodcuts, ink and watercolours. His artistic memories will be collated in a special book, Drawing the Games: A Story of London 2012 and the artworks will be available for collectors. In the meantime the illustrations will be on view for Londoners and visitors at City Hall throughout July.
