Schoolbooks are the mainstay of many South African illustrators.
This is because there’s such a huge need for children’s educational material.
This comes out in the relentless educating and moralising that happens in stories that are meant to be just for fun … So naturally my main mission is to add the fun, the colour, and where I can, the wit. Not that they shouldn’t be educational – children love to learn, and advance, and be like ‘the big kids’. But great if they take in the benefit along with a good dose of fun.
