Discovering Comic Book Illustrator Sonny Nkumeleni

Soweto based illustrator Nkumelenis has always had a fascination with DC and Marvel comics. His passion has led him to create these awesome blend of African mythology and storytelling along with illustration.

I am mostly self-taught though I did go to college to study animation. I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil. I used to draw the cartoons I enjoyed watching while growing up. And then it reached a point where I decided it I was better off drawing from my own imagination.

I was always into myths and legends growing up, whether they be African or from other countries from around the world. I guess they just helped feed my imagination. The way I see it, comics are just another version of those myths.
