Su Opperman


I am an illustrator, painter, cartoonist and sculptor. I graduated in fine art at P.E. Technikon in the Eastern Cape, and it was during those years that I created my first full length comic. Afterwards I busied myself in bronze-casting and spent some time having great fun while making life-size movie monsters in resin and silicon. I've exibited my paintings at the National Arts Festival and at the Absa L'Atelier and various other exhibitions.

Currently I am doing my MPhil in illustration at the University of Stellenbos and am a member of the CCIBA. I am busy with my second graphic novel that I want to get published in a year or two. I am working my way to becoming SA's greatest comic artist!

EDITOR’S NOTE: Su is also an avid surfer who grew up riding Cape St Francis’s epic waves. These days she hangs out with the dubious Strand beach crew.
