Cartooning for Revenge! (and LOLS)


FYI. Before you do this course, you might want to sign up for Cartoon Yourself on the 25th of July. It’s FREE if you sign up to my newsletter or only R75 if you’re already subscribed or want the replay as well.

In this live online course, I will teach you how to Cartoon for Revenge. We all have that annoying sibling, co-worker, boss, neighbour, or partner who makes us want to throw hands.

Don’t pick a fight. Pick up a pen & draw a devastating, hilarious cartoon. It’s a fun way to learn a new skill.

In this course, I’m taking you behind the scenes, and you will learn all the same tips, tricks, and techniques I used when writing and illustrating my book “Good Luck to Us All: A Graphic Memoir of Sorts,” out next year.

For the same price as a one-hour private lesson with me, you’ll get:

• Three hours of lessons 

45 minutes for Q&A’s

• Video replays to download and keep.

The chance to meet my meow-nager, Sir Henry Baba Ganoush, the Bohemian. 

AND an exclusive discount code to get a private cartooning lesson with me for only R500!


All for only R650


Course dates and times:

10 September 18h15 – 19h30

17 September 18h15 – 19h30

26 September  18h15 – 19h30


It’s online, so you can join from anywhere. Please note that times are in SAST, and prices are in South African Rands. A replay will be sent out after every lesson.

All you need is an internet connection, pencil, eraser, pen, paper, and, if you’re feeling fancy, something to add colour, such as coloured pencils or paints. This is nice but not necessary. If you have a pencil and the back of an old envelope, you’re also good to go.

I’ve been a professional award-winning art director, illustrator and designer for the past 20 years. It is my day job to come up with fresh, original ideas and bring them to life.  When I started teaching in 2019, I developed a bunch of exercises and techniques to teach others what I know in a short timeframe and to make it fun. I know that the biggest obstacle to creative work is self-doubt. That is why my classrooms are judgement-free zones where the focus is on having fun because that is when you are able to create your best work and learn the most.

This workshop is beginner-friendly. You don’t need any special talents, skills or experience. You don’t need to be creative or artistic. My workshops are designed to help you overcome your fears and mental blocks and teach you how to think creatively, illustrate your ideas and find your very own style. Whether you’re an experienced artist looking to try something new or a complete newbie who hasn’t drawn a stick figure since pre-school, you’ll love this course.

We hope to see you there!


Please note that while Cartoon Yourself on the 25th of July is kid-friendly, this course is not.

I always get asked. So… I don’t know if and when I will repeat this course. I never repeat courses close together. If I do repeat it, it will probably only be next year some time.

Please ensure you’re signed on and settled in to start at 18h15. When you make your purchase, you’ll immediately receive an email with the link from Check your spam folder if you can’t find your link. If you really can’t find it, please contact me with the name you booked under, and I will make sure you get it. You can use the same link for every lesson.

If you’re having trouble purchasing your ticket online, please let me know. If it’s last minute, as in 5 to 18h00 on the day please Whatsapp, as that is more likely to get my attention and get you on the Zoom on time. I’m not always on email. If it’s really last minute and you’re desperate phone. Hopefully, my phone is not off. But as I said, if you miss it, there will be a replay available.

Every person who joins needs their own ticket. In other words, if two people share a computer, both will need a ticket. Pets can join for free. If your pet joins, please show me your pet. Please don’t share your link with others.

A replay will be sent out after the workshop. These videos are yours to keep and enjoy, but please don’t share them; they are for ticket holders only. Also, don’t upload it on any platform or use it for teaching purposes without my permission. 

Replays will be sent out and available for a limited amount of time. It’s your responsibility to download the video before the link expires. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to resend links. But if you didn’t get the link, please let me know, and I will send it to you.

No refunds or exchanges. If you miss a class and/or a replay download, you won’t be able to join a future class, workshop or course for free. If I, for some reason, have to postpone, that will be a different story and I will make sure that you get to do the course or get your money back.

Please check your inbox before the lesson. If I have to cancel or postpone for some reason, I’ll send an email and let you know. Up until now, I’ve never had to, but you never know. Life happens sometimes.

If you don’t know your Zoom handle, please just put your name there.

The information will stay up here.

Please make sure you put the time in your calendar and keep the link in a safe place. I’m one person, and email queries take up a lot of time. So please check back here to see if your question is answered before sending your query.

If you have any queries that are not covered here, please let me know. I’ll be happy to help.

And lastly and most importantly, thank you SO much for your support. As I’ve said, I’m a very sm0ll business of only one (smoll) person, and every purchase, share, and good review makes a big difference. I absolutely love teaching and really believe that everyone is creative and benefits from creativity. And I’m excited to share my love for creativity and illustration with you!
