Australian artist Eddie Botha’s inspiring illustrations

Cormack O'Connor Contributor

By Cormack O'Connor in New Illustration on Friday 1 February 2013

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.

Andy Reader Find

By Andy in New Design on Saturday 23 October 2010

I met Aaron Craig at a festival some seven years ago and had no idea the kid was an artist. He told cracking tales and had wanderlust in his eye, a likable guy who was always planning an adventure. Since then, he’s lived in various cities around Australia and undertook a sabbatical across the globe, calling Canada home for several years. His travel updates were the sort you longed for.
