Am best known as an illustrator in Cape Town, but that’s too narrow a picture, so to speak. More accurately, I’m a visual communicator: animating, photographing and designing, making puppets and props. Anything that will get an idea across to your end-users or to mine, I will do. But nothing involving heights or tattoos. I’ll even write stuff. Like now.
But drawing, or illustrating (which is showing to tell) seems to elate the long-ago child I was, who wondered for years how they got the lines so black in comics. My parents’ blue ballpoint pens and my pencils just didn’t get that mysterious sharp effect. I was entranced when I left my dusty little village and discovered Indian Ink at my new High School which had a real Art Teacher.
Back to now: My greatest wish is to leave the world with more artists than there would have been if I hadn’t got here. And so the drawing courses are slowly getting there, the first three of which are under Free Stuff. Some of the real Art Teacher’s tips and tricks are in there too. (Thank you Molly Kearsley.)
Working with interesting people and creative challenges is what makes the day fly. Doing what I love all day is still a dream constantly coming true.

Or- relax and put the kettle on while you download and print this portfolio on the left, which is a flying visit through my 24 styles. Or just read the thing online if you have South African bandwidth.
These are the other 24 illustrators at the service of my clients. I combine many of these for clients producing school text books. It also makes every job more fun as an illustrator of text-books specifically. Because when the illustrator gets bored, it shows straight away, and then end-users get bored as well. So – best to keep oneself smiling as the pictures build.
Once this portfolio is on your screen or printed and on your desk, go through it at your leisure and you’re bound to find something that will fit your particular purpose. If you want to print and file it, please do. This is a good way to get the general feel of my work at the same time.
Want to forward it to others? A great idea – it’s an interactive pdf document if viewed on-screen. The most important links appear on the back, and lead to more info on this website.
(May need some assembly. Batteries and interwebbity not included.)
So – hire me, get 2 dozen free.
