Here's a cartoon I did for my friend Andy Mason for his birthday a couple of weeks ago. I enjoy drawing surfing cartoons,
 I used to draw them a lot as a child. I think I was originally inspired by the cartoons in The Corner Surf Shop Muizenberg.

Something silly for this weeks People's Post cartoon. A new proposal for the Cape Town stadium which incorporates the unfinished Freeway at the same time. With all the rain we've had recently, we'd just need to plug the exits and wait for nature to do the rest. 
Great opportunities for scuba driving too.
