Masa Martinovic illustration 1 Masa Martinovic is one talented lady with a love for fashion design and illustration. She has had her own fashion label called Electron Cloud and a jewellery label called Bitter Sweet that sold at Nylon in Long Str. Her designs have been featured in Seventeen, SL Magazine and Glamour and she is currently designing for Earthchild Clothing. This is what she has to say, 'I'm very passionate about both fashion and illustration - and the combination of the two is something that I have always loved. I have been very torn between the two aspects of design, but I've decided I will work hard to have my cake and eat it too - and would love to one day have my own label again and have my graphic novel published at the same time.'

Alistair Palmer was born in Hermanus and lives in Cape Town.  He takes inspiration from the world around him and enjoys the little things in life. He surfs, rides bicycles, and enjoys working with power tools and wood. Alistair likes beer and card games, camping, making coffee, organising things and collecting junk. Makes for a good creative foundation. Constantly playing with colour and texture, Alistair's work exists in both design and art, the line between the two becoming somewhat blurry. He likes this, because it means one idea can live many lives beyond the screen.
