One thought on “Tonic’s “Friction De Guerre” Illustration Book- Narrative Illustration Project

  1. These illustrations deals with the experiences of veterans of the South African Border War, which took place on the border between Namibia, (then known as South West Africa), and Angola between 1966 and 1989. Those 23 years of raging conflict left many South African men with deep psychological scars. By jamming the blanket of silence that churns around the topic of what is contemporarily viewed as Apartheid’s war on the frontier, I hope to convey to the reader how the decisions made by politicians can have a profound effect on young men’s lives.
