It was such a treat to stick my head into Studio Dylan Thomaz in Bo Kaap this afternoon and sneak a preview of tonight’s First Thursdays showing of “Tintin in Africa”, which features the works of ceramicist Sarah Benjamin and Illustrator Maria Magdalena van Wyk.

I am also very happy to say that the beautiful Esther Mahlangu-inspired mural on the wall of the studio was completed using our very own Plascon paints…

Tintin is a character very close to Thomaz’s heart, and the renderings by illustrator Maria Magdalena van Wyk are too beautiful for words – the line work is something else I must tell you and the delightful South African twists will make you chuckle out loud…
