I was born in Cape Town in 1972. Attended to a local public school and always had a talent for drawing. In 1992 went to Penisula Technicon to study Graphic Design. Worked for a few small companies doing logo design, sign writing, layouts and some illustation work. Illustration was always my passion and did a lot of it in my free time. In 1999 started working for Artec as a illustator and layout work for school books. Work for four year and joined Media24 as a magazine designer. Currently I’m doing a lot of freelance illustration work for a few magazine. I also have a daily comic strip called ‘Jay&Joe’ which appear in a local Cape tabloit newspaper. So the art directing, illustrating and painting is keeping me quit busy, but I’m enjoying it a lot.
