(Cartoon of “Twitch” featuring Jailoshini Naidoo, Iain EOWK Robinson, Tim Wells and Lisa Bobbert)

First theatre cartoon for artSMart by Coral Spencer represents a first for KZN’s largest multi-cultural online magazine.

Artist Coral Spencer has generously offered to do cartoons of theatre productions to be published on artSMart.

“This is a tremendous gesture by Coral, particularly as artSMart is a voluntary service,” says artSMart editor, Caroline Smart. “In days gone by, the cartoons by the legendary Jock Leyden – which adorn the walls of the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre bar area – created an added interest in any theatre production.

”We are hoping to pick up on that tradition we proudly present Coral’s first cartoon – that of the KickstArt production of Twitch which is currently running at the Sneddon.”

Coral Spencer’s exhibition Face booked opened this evening at artSPACE durban and provides further proof that she is a very talented artist. (See separate story)
