Dr Jack (Swanepoel) and (John) Curtis make up the award-winning creative duo that has supplied City Press with its weekly editorial cartoons since 2012, signing their work as Dr Jack and Curtis.

Curtis conceptualises the cartoons, which Jack then illustrates, but their collaboration is such that they work together despite a social distancing of 400km between their homes in all aspects of the creation of their cartoons, which reflect their worldview and humour beneath the banner “As We See It” and “Biltong and Stripes” on our editorial pages.    

Check out some of their cartoons here.
