Australian artist Eddie Botha’s inspiring illustrations

Eddie Botha is a South African-born Australian artist (via Malaysia) who has been doodling all his life. Getting his first break drawing pictures for his school newspaper, he is basically untrained. While in school, Botha was forced to write with his right hand even though he is left handed. Now he uses both hands to produce his artwork. Inspired by pop art, impressionism, manga and steampunk, Botha’s work youthfully captures the colours of Africa, the vibrancy of Malaysia, and the natural surrounds of Australia.
