I am an award-winning cartoonist with a portfolio spanning thousands of cartoons across multiple genres in various languages crossing numerous countries over many years.

In other words, I have earned my stripes. (Or, shall we rather say, lines.)

I am based in South Africa, but my clientele is global. My real name is Jeremy Nell and I live in the leafy northern suburbs of Cape Town with my wife, dogs, cat, parrot, horse, and earplugs.

There is a lot written about me in the mainstream (and social) media. Most of it is fake news written by individuals who dislike my opinions. You’re welcome to believe it, mind you, Like Wikipedia’s claim that I have been married since 2010 when, in reality, I got married in 2019.

The army of the emboldened and gleefully ill-informed is growing.
— Andrew Breitbart

I have been drawing cartoons professionally since 2005.

Some of my clients have included:

I have published two books through Penguin.

My first book is the namesake of my YouTube series.

 
 

I also have a few awards.

Although I’ve mostly stopped participating in award ceremonies, I’ll nevertheless note a few accolades for which I’m very grateful.
