Bio & Contact

I’m a Cape Town based illustrator and cartoonist. After several years working as an art director at some of Cape Town's big advertising agencies, I made the jump to full time illustration. My work can be found in local and international magazines, on book covers and wine labels and seen in advertising campaigns.

To make my pictures, I use pencil drawings, ink splats, bits of old photographs, mouldy paper, leaves and mysterious textures I find behind the lawnmower in the tool shed. I scan them all in and arrange them in Photoshop.

I also collaborated with my brother to produce a daily cartoon (for 3 years, ending in 2010) in Business Day called The Western Nostril. My illustration work has been recognised by Lurzer’s Archive and was included in their 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide 07/08, 11/12 and 14/15
