Example of cartoon

Cape Town, South Africa based cartoonist Konrad Rode (previously trading as Rode Graphics in Bellville) creates cartoons mostly for publication covers, book covers, training programmes and educational programmes.

We often use cartoons to add some humour to the sometimes morbid subject of economics, training programmes etc. – something that's appreciated by business people and workers alike.

Example of caricature

As a caricaturist, or caricature artist, Konrad often gets requests for retirement gifts, general corporate gifts, farewell gifts or wedding anniversary gifts in the form of caricatures that summarise how company staff or significant others see that person.

A caricature is a cartoon or illustration of a specific person, distorting and drawing attention to his/her standout features.

What clients say:


Lynette Smit
Marketing manager, Rode & Associates

"A creative genius..."


Pieter De Waal
Sole proprietor, Hermit on the Hill

"A stickler for detail, Konrad appreciates the difference between good and great, and won't stop tweaking till the end-product meets his exacting standards.

His offbeat sense of humour, coupled with his ability to transform this into his designs, makes it a pleasure to brainstorm new concepts with him.

Konrad has been a key member in developing my brand, and I always look to him for inspiration and creativity."


Tania de Maine-Oosthuizen:
Manager, Tharagay Addictions Services

"We love his work, from initial ideas to final designs! What he has done for us, was simple, yet elegant, and purely beautiful".


Zeki Hilmi
Sole proprietor, Chelsea Village Framers and Antique Shoppe

"Konrad has this exceptional ability to develop illustrations.

We were so thrilled by the work he undertook for us that we employed Konrad to design our wedding invitation, which, through collaboration and Konrad's outstanding knowledge of graphic design, he designed for us exactly what we were looking for. All our guests commented and said, "what an amazing wedding invitation!"

I recommend Konrad to everybody and will use him in the future again."
