The presence of South African cartoonist Anton Kannenmeyer aboard Fleur de Passion hasn’t gone unnoticed by the local media. The internationally renowned author had embarked for a week at the end of November-early December 2018 in Mossel Bay, just before Cape Town. And the Afrikaans daily newspaper Die Burger collected the impressions of the man who made himself famous for his squeaky satires of the social and political reality of his country.
His drawings made on board will be visible in facsimile form as part of the exhibition "Our Spice Islands" that will open 3 to January 24, 2019 during the stopover at V & A Waterfront in Cape Town from - like those of all the other comic strip authors and illustrators - mainly Swiss - who have embarked from the departure in Seville.
From January 7th to 12th, Anton will come aboard once or twice to participate in one of the comic book workshops that will be organized in the presence of the Swiss author Alex Baladi, one of the seventeen authors of the expedition to date.
