Whenever I’m in need of a good South African giggle, I merely have to click over to Suzelle DIY – our very own tears-rolling-down-your-face-with-laughter YouTube sensation. If you haven’t heard of her…what rock have you been under? And if you know dear Suzelle and her DIY antics, then we’re on the same page. But what you may not know is that Julia Anastasopoulos, the actress behind the delightfully dippy character, is also an accomplished illustrator. Her work is whimsical and beautifully drawn. Take a look at her illustrations under her label Knolc.
Julia has her architecturally referenced illustrations featured at the Civic Centre MyCiti Bus Station, where the visitors explore the Cape Town Cityscape through a series of illustrated panels. Another long-time favourite of mine is her mural in the children’s section of The Book Lounge.
So I’m in need of a laugh today…I’m off to watch Suzelle How To Iron Without An Iron…
and then I’ll see How To Make The Suzelle Upstyle.
Because anybody can. Have a great day!
