Pete Woodbridge

I am a freelance comic illustrator, living in Muizenberg, Cape Town, South Africa.

I was born in 1972 in the Jo’berg General…moved to Cape Town in 1985. Drawing has always been a way of communicating for me.

I obtained a two-year advertising diploma which covered art direction, I found that my strongest areas were story boarding and illustration. I’ve been doing it ever since. I have worked for NGO’s, and for 9 years as an illustrator for Strika Entertainment  working on the Supastrika comic.
My main inspiration and interest comes from people . I work mainly in pencil, ink pen, and digital illustration – One special project I have followed over the years has been doodling faces on the train – as an exercise. I tried out different mediums … going from pencil to brush pen, then colour ball point, and fine-liner, creating thousands of very wiry portraits and filling up several note books.
I recently co curated , exhibited and performed as a musician  at  the Co/mix Exhibition in Grahamstown.
I am also a musician, with percussion as my first love. I am currently in a band called Cardigan Buzz.
