Okay, was my last journal seriously written last December? That's just sad... Anyways, moving very swiftly along, I have been blessed with one of the most amazing opportunities of my life! Tomorrow I'll be boarding a plane to Cape Town to give the opening speech on a presentation entitled: "Uncovering the Secret Identity of South African Comics" at none other than the 2014 Design Indaba! Now, some of you might be saying: "Uuuh, what is that?", well, for a person in my profession (I'm a lecturer in Multimedia Design), it's one of the biggest and rarest opportunities you can get in the Design Industry. To speak there is truly an honour, especially because it's one of the biggest conferences of its kind in the world!
It all came together when I nagged
about doing a talk there... I mean, we went to Comic Con, but have never presented anything locally in South Africa, it's shameful! The intention and the idea is to expose this very influential audience to SA comic art, and we'll be speaking about a LOT of YOUR work. Yes, yours! Whether it's "Cottonstar", "Wrath", "Sophie the Giant Killer" or "Creamy Cheese Ninjas", SA comic art is going to get a much needed support boost!
So, if you do live around Cape Town, have R80 free and are available at 11am, come through to the exhibition hall at CTICC and catch me,
and Daniel S Hugo speaking about our beloved art!
I'm the guy with the red mohawk, in case you've never met me...
