I love to discover local creative talent and this recent find is a gem – Kobie ‘Koba’ Nieuwoudt is a South African illustrator based in Cape Town, specialising in graphic design, GIF animation and original / unique illustrative work in the form of commissions, or available on products for sale in her online shop.
In 2015 her children’s book illustrations from “Pippa en die Woud” were chosen to represent South Africa as part of the Worldwide Picture Book Exhibition; and in 2016 she was chosen as a Design Indaba Emerging Creative.
To say that I am now a stalker of Koba’s work would be a bit of an under-exaggeration. Her gorgeous palettes and patterns, not to mention AMAZING gif work and sense of humour, really brighten up my social media feeds and I love to see what she creates…
