Our #TalentTuesday is none other than South African animator and illustrator, Katlego Kgabale. If you have seen any of her works then you already know that she is a bundle of talent and if you have not seen any of her works before we are here to have you convinced!

The 24-year-old creative artist is based in Johannesburg, South Africa and currently working as a junior animator at Animoss Media. We found her works through her Behance page and were immediately wowed. Kady, as she is popularly known, has been making her waves in the art world recently and seeing her works we feel like we are transported into our childhood.

Kady states, “I taught myself the techniques by looking at other artists’ works. I still have a long way to go but I don’t think I’m doing too badly so far!. I thought of the relationships that people/children have with their pets and I guess it all came together from there.”

See some of her past illustration series below!
