Mason discusses being the subject of caricature in Bitterkomix 15, some of his favourite South African cartoonists, as well as his new book, What's so Funny? Under the Skin of South African Cartooning. Mason emphasises the importance of a local vernacular in South African comics and touches on the state of the South African comics publishing industry.

The Visual Journals of Heleen Schröder

heleen schrder_visual journal
The core of Heleen Schröder's artistic practice is in the intimate sphere of the sketchbook and journal. Her books are a repository for thought, observation, research and experimentation and a space of absolute freedom. For Heleen, the translating, editing, and interpreting of this private proliferation of imagery for public display has in the past taken the form of printmaking (screenprinting, etching, and lithography), as well as ink washes, watercolours and acrylics on paper. Her visual journals reveal an appreciation for hand-made books and display a sensitive process of observation from everyday-life.
