This is the last page of my sketchbook and I finished it while in South Africa just before the show. Since arriving back in Canada I've begun a new sketchbook as I can't seem to get enough of this nonsense.

Another pitch, another kids show. I really like the flies we came up with. They're 2 flies on the wall, and they listen in. But we made them, like, flippen' SPY flies! Radness.

I spent some time working around my logo for my animation. I'll tell you a joke:

"What's nice and round and full of nice colours? A rainbow."

I made that one up right now. Not flippen' bad. Not bad at all.

Woahski's bru! Awesome pics that I can now pore over! NICE ONE BRUTHAS! You all ROCK! Looked like a flippen' awesome event. Bring on the next one, WOOHOO! As soon as I can afford it, I'm hiring Tyron Love and Alistair laird to make animations with me. Kiffness.

(Some random drawings I did while I was working on another thing)

The following photos are my somewhat clumsy attempt at documenting the Sketchbook Project exhibition "OFF THE WALL 2" at artSPACE gallery in Durban on May 7, 2007.

The exhibition began on May 6 at artSpace with a graf workshop by Senyol. This amazing wall was created that afternoon. Wesley Van Eeden made a nice contribution on the far right side of the wall.
My apologies to all those artists that were left out of these photos. Sadly, I missed some of the contributors, so one will have to visit artSPACE to get the full effect. Enjoy.

A mind-blowing series by Jeff Rankin.

Cape Town artist, Senyol, hanging his work.

A lovely striking wall by Andrew Mogridge.

Rico's large paintings pack a visual punch in the back half of the gallery.

Beautiful paintings by Ross Turpin, with a triptych by Luke Molver below.

An awe-inspiring collection of work by Jason Bronkhorst.

Some pics from the show on May 7th at the artSPACE gallery.

And the crowds arrived in droves. The turn out was wonderful and the large area of artSPACE was filled to the brim.
The indefatigable N.D. Mazin addressing the masses.

The sketchbooks on display with some brilliant Zapiro work in the background.

Ewok laying down some sweet beats.

Oh heck, let me post something here again... ever have the feeling of being "stuck in a runt?" ... ok, ok, ok... really, really bad pun! ;-)

Some sketches I'm doing. Putting a visual pitch package together for some dudes for their brand new Afrikaans Music Kids Show! I say "heeeeyoooo" I say "ho ho ho." Anyway, having quite a lot of fun I guess, there's another cartoonist here by the name of James Wolfaardt. His ideas are superb. Check out He does a webcomic. It is called, funnily enough; 'Happy Chicken Suicide Cult'. So he's helping me with this kids show. It's with medium-sized puppets (the ones where the oke puts his arm inside the puppet and uses his other hand to control a wire to the puppet's one arm) and shot in green chroma screen, so the studio can be hand-drawn and stuffs as well. We doing our kiffest our side to make the puppets rad.

Any news on the show in Durbs? I'd really like to know how things went. Did the slideshow work? Anyone sell any paintings? Because I can't find news ANYWHERE except from Tyron Love, but I think he ducked out early to go become a porn star.


For those of you who were at the recent opening of the Off the Wall 2 exhibition in Durban you might have been approached by a little pimped up, side cap wearing kid trying to sell you one of the photo copied ‘zines in the box he was clutching. I bought one off this little savage for 10 bucks and put it in the girlfriend’s bag for later.

Alistair Laird is a young cartoonist from Toti in Durban, I remember when he first arrived at the Durban Cartoon Project studio’s years ago bugging Themba and I while we were trying to meet deadlines. It’s been a few years and he has grown up into a freak of nature that I would seriously ban my daughter from dating! For all his extreme oddities however his cartoons were for me one of the highlights of the exhibition. His style is a crazy hybrid of Mark Bell, Gary Panter and Matt Groening. He offends plenty of people in an unapologetic manner. He admits that, if he could he would kill everyone who judges him, he draws out conversations with startling accuracy and has crazy characters like Angus the Anus, Lorenzo the Plant, The nameless puddle of Urine and Pete the Washing Machine.

So if you are in need of some exhausting reading while you are casting out that Durban curry demon I recommend Sick Comix Mini Theatre. I have no clue of how you are gonna get one of these ‘zines but if you are interested in buying it then e-mail me: and I’ll organize! Alistair will be stoked!

I put the sketchbook project slideshow together today. Over 500 sketches! Wooh! That's a lot. Great work you dudes and chicks. I sent the slideshow to Andy. It is very kiff.

Here's a sketch I did that. "Time to VECTORIZE" as they say in the classics.

Also, for anyone that's interested in animation, there's a cool interview with ED, EDD & EDDY creator Danny Antonucci. Hard to believe he created a kids show. What a kiff dude.

Finished a painting last night. I now have three of the four I planned to take down to Durbs this weekend. Sadly, that thing called 'work' is getting in the way of progress...!

Here's a doodle on my door.

And some brush and inkery.
