I'm a professional illustrator with 20 years’ experience on national and international publishing platforms – both traditional and digital. My creative strengths are children's book illustration, character development and book cover design. I also have a strong history in comics, graphic novels and game design - which in practice translate awesomely into various media requirements. I keep up to date with brand trends as to make sure my art and designs are relevant.
I work both traditionally and digitally. Both pencils and Wacom is my creative weapon of choice, and Photoshop allows me to add the final magical flair to every illustrated character and design. Whether shading by pencil, inking by pen or colouring with Photoshop – I put my heart into every character that lands on my desk, ready to come alive.

My name is Malcolm and I am a freelance illustrator based in Cape Town, South Africa.
I officially am an Architecture Graduate finishing 3 years at the University of Cape Town. My passion however lies in art, comics and design.
As a professional Illustrator, I have worked for Supa-Strikas, one of South Africa’s leading comic companies. I have also freelanced for various clients ranging from America all the way to Europe. In addition to this, I started my own t-shirt company at the beginning of 2011 called Rocketboi Concepts, which is growing ever steadily.
I like to think of my art as eclectic, borrowing from various forms of art and other visual communication. By blending aspects of several styles, I have made my own visually and conceptually unique. Some of my most prominent influences are comics, predominantly publications hailing from Europe and Japan. By sharing my talent and work with the rest of the world, I hope to encourage and inspire fellow artists in the same way in which my influences have inspired me.
