Peter M

Born in Rustenburg, I grew up on misson stations in the bush. I hated school, started drawing teachers and church elders in my hymnbook and later polititians.
I matriculated at the German School in Pretoria, went to a kibbutz in Israel, then did a diploma in Fine Art at Wits Tech in Johannesburg . I studied Graphic design at the AAA School of Advertising and moved on to be an editorial cartoonist for 10 years at Beeld, Citizen and Daily Dispatch.

I took a 2 year break from cartooning to work for Stephen Klein Design studio as workshop manager, doing 3d off the wall commissions, before joining the Citizen.

I love designing and making things with my hands. My workshop and my powertools are my paradise, but I always need that balance between 2d and 3d, drawing people and especially faces.

I live with my wife and 2 daughters in Cape Town.
