Graf/lit is a joint comics initiative started in 2013 by the CCIBA in partnership with Youngblood and Mamba Media. The project consists of both a publication and an exhibition featuring local South African artists. The aim of Graf/lit is to develop  greater public awareness of comic art in South Africa, as well as to give local comic artists a platform to exhibit and showcase their work.  So far, Graf/lit has been a roaring success and the willingness of local talent to participate in the project, inspiring. The extent to which graphic literature (Graf/lit)  has grown in SA in the last five years is amazing, whether that relates to practicing artists or public reception. From the Graf/lit team’s side we’d like to think that we’ve contributed to that!
