Good news on a Monday morning..
Last year we applied to the National Arts Council to produce and publish Graflit, an annual anthology of Southern African Comic Art. Unfortunately, the pigeon carrying the response from NAC got lost somewhere in the leafy gardens of the University of Stellenbosch. It was found 4 months later somewhere in a dark corner. For the brave little creature all help came too late. The NAC letter however finally reached it’s destination informing us that our proposal had been accepted.. HOOZAY HOOZAY!
And such perfect timing , as Graflit will be linked to Co/Mix 2011 and be even bigger and better. Graflit will consist of a selection of South African comic art and, more importantly, of a directory of south african artists. We will be launching a call to all comic artists to submit their work in March.
But for now, have a look at Jason Bronkhorst’s comix dot coza, an online curated directory of south african cartoon and comic artists.
