I draw and illustrate cartoons for all types of media, from comic strips, corporate and commercial cartoons to children's book.
I am also the co-creator of the syndicated comic strips Mama Taxi, Treknet, Koos, Ripples and Brak, which are published in various newspapers and magazines throughout South Africa, Namibia and the USA.
You can following me on Facebook at Gavin Thomson Cartoons and Illustrations (or click on the picture below right) or on Instagram at Gavin Thomson Cartoonist for more regular updates.

A sketch I did for the St. Mary's library project at the Open Book Comics Fest last weekend. 
I think I might do this as my next painting. #brak #spacedog #openbookfestival #stmaryslibraryproject #lekker

What a journey! 10 years sped by like a.....well, like a taxi : ) 
Special thanks to Deni, for keeping the humour tank topped up, the newspapers and editors who have supported us over the years, and last but not least, all our friends and fans who have supported us with encouragement. Thank you : )

A timeline picture for the Treknet Facebook page and website. Brak has been contemplating space recently in the strip, dog being pioneers of space travel after all. You didn't ever hear of them sending cats to space, did you? Dogs rule! (space too). #brak #spacedog
