People of Note - Jonathan Shapiro

Arguably South Africa’s most famous cartoonist is Zapiro, whose real name is Jonathan Shapiro. His cartoons have the ability to make us laugh but also to make us cringe and feel uncomfortable as he snipes at our politicians, including international figures, and, as he says, even in his crazy mind he couldn’t invent a country with our curious goings on. Zapiro has just released his 27th annual collection called It’s Not How It Looks and it makes for fascinating browsing.
