ABOUT THIS COMIC
Howzit! So, on Friday, Ex minister of police and current Minister of Fokkol, Tweeted out to his 1.3 million twitter followers, to Vote for the EFF… Apparently by accident , but I’m not so sure! I reckon he’s still a little pissed off about being minister of nothing. He’s now ANC’s head of elections, great start Fikile! To be fair though, I’ve done it before, you start typing the hashtag and it gives you options to auto finish the tag, sometimes you pick the wrong one, so yeah it happens…. But shouldn’t happen to a guy who spends his life on Twitter, also shouldn’t happen to the person called the ANC Elections Head
This cartoon is a 2 parter. I wanted to do the Minister of Fokkol toon a few weeks ago, but didn’t manage to fit it in. Now I could use the fokkol joke and have it be the reason why Fikile Tweeted what he tweeted, so it worked out ok. The screenshot of the Tweet is a little small here, This wordpress theme for some reason blurs my cartoons when it scales the size down, so i have to make the cartoon 600px wide for it not to blur. Prolly should’ve made the panels 1x2x2. Ah well….
Here’s a screenshot of the Tweet
Bonus Bonus Notes
So , this was the first time i drew both Fikile and Cyril from my head. Usually i look at a picture of them but for fun I tried just drawing what I remembered. They look weird, but i like it. Starting to enjoy this style. Not too sure how long I will do South African stuff for. I’m getting the urge to do a few normal comics for a while.
Got a pretty cool message from the Comedian , Dave Levinsohn.
I dig this dude, I mainly knew him from funny adverts and stuff over the years. I actually saw him at a run once, and i was like hey it’s that funny guy from TV! Was too scared to say hello. I started listening to his Podcast last year when I got apple TV, really funny show. Anyway, it’s super cool hearing from people I’m a fan of. Like, I’m meeting so many people I never dreamed I would ever meet and it’s all thanks to a hobby 🙂 Man, it’s been such a cool few months!
