In celebration of Pretoria’s movers and shakers, Brent Black of Spaza Studio has created an art-inspired card game featuring illustrations of gifted Pretoria-born folks who have made a mark in the creative field..

According to, the December holiday project gained traction, growing from 10 illustrations into something bigger than expected. The illustrations include Bittereinder, Vusi Mahlasela, Lamiez Holworthy and Kagiso Lediga. The project has since had the contribution of 50 illustrators who created 112 unique designs. These cards can either be traded or kept as collectables.

On October 19 there’ll be a launch at the African Beer Emporium, where a “how to play” video will also be released.
