Paper Planes at Design Indaba

I’m taking part in the Paper Planes exhibition that will be up at the Design Indaba Expo in Cape Town from 27 February to 1 March.

In short, the exhibition will have 44 illustrators, each of which has done their own visual interpretation of a local, South African story. I got Jakkals Trou met Wolf se Vrou, a story in which the notoriously sneaky Jakkals convinces Wolf’s fiancée that he (Wolf) no longer loves her, and that she should marry him, a dapper gentleman, instead. Luckily, Mother Nature is on Wolf’s side, and manages to stall the wedding with a combination of rain and sunshine until Wolf is able to declare his undying love the the lady … er, wolf, of his dreams. I decided to represent this love triangle in a wedding portrait fashion.

Prints are on sale at the event.

Swimming Season 2015

Happy 2015! It’s a new year with new resolutions. One of them being to spend more time blogging. So, after about 40 minutes of trying to reset my password (this has been my life for the past week, trying to remember lost and forgotten passwords), here’s some work I’ve been doing over the holidays.

I’m finally (eeek!) having my first solo show later this year, at the beautiful Rust en Vrede gallery in Cape Town. I’m working with the title Swimming Season, here are a few ideas I’ve been playing around with. Some smaller A4 works and then a large canvas of which I’ve posted a few detail shots … it’s not done juuuuust yet.
