Rayaan Cassiem is currently working as a Senior Designer at the Cape Town Branch of TBWA. These are some of his digital paintings inspired by comic book illustration. Rayaan says,"I grew up on the Cape Flats as a kid and one of my fondest memories is that of my gran buying me a stack of comics as a kid whenever I was sick and confined to my room to get better. This started my on-going love affair with drawing and especially comic books and I could usually be found clutching a pencil and emulating my favourite comic book artists."
After high school Rayaan intended to study fine art at UCT but due to financial reasons he had to settle on studying graphic design instead and proceeded to graduate with a degree in design from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
