Cape Town Zine Project.

I'm starting a project called the Cape Town Zine Project. It's quite small at the moment, but it will in the future collect a lot of South African self-published matter in one place, a shop. So far we have the Chimurenganya series and the Jungle Jim series. If you self-publish, please get in touch. The books/zines can be bought at Blank Books, in Woodstock, Cape Town and on the Blank Books website.

Hi, If you're keen on seeing my drawings and photos, I am posting somewhat regularly on my Tumblr page, sebastianborckenhagen.tumblr.com.

These are what my new booklet look like. They haven't really gone on sale yet, though I gave three to Blank Books in Woodstock, Cape Town when I was there on Saturday. The booklet was produced as part of the Independent Publishing Project's second iteration at the Goethe-Institut in Johannesburg that took place over March and April. For the closing a signed, numbered and dog-drawing-ed edition of five were sold.

People Comics

Well, friends. I am about to zoom off to Hamburg to take part in a show there called Comics and Avant-Garde from South Africa (Raum Links-Rechts, Gängerviertel - 24th March-14th April). Will be bringing up a stack of comics and a whole bunch of litho prints, in case you are in town.

Two of the comics that I'm taking up are Philosophy Comics and People Comics which I made in February. The two form a pair. People Comics is, with exception of the last page, a series of word-less people-scapes. Here are a few of those pages. Click 'read more' to see more.

The Design Indaba. (A ramble-on)

A brush and ink drawing I had up for sale.

This weekend I took part in a trade show at the CTICC, the Design Indaba.

Watch out.

A quick update.

It has been a long while since I've written. This while coincides, coincidentally, with a rather action-packed patch of my life as a comic-artist.
