Umuveli & The Bird

This is a print I did for the Paper Planes Exhibition at the 2015 Design Indaba. It was organized by Alexanders Band, who are awesome.

The exhibition consisted of over 40 South African illustrators, creating artworks that interpret South African folklore and legends. I illustrated the story of Umuveli and the bird, a story of an ambitious and ungrateful bird that becomes a king, but looses everything because of his own pride.

You can find out about it and probably purchase a print HERE.
