Brendon Kevin Pitt is a South African Illustrator from Port Elizabeth. He attained his BA in Fine Art, with a special focus on illustration based art, from the Nelson Mandela University.
From an early age, Pitt found himself intrigued by comic book-based storytelling and animation. He was drawn to the dynamic nature of the art and the impact visuals have on storytelling.
Pitt's work is mostly inspired by great Comic book artists and Illustrators such as Brian Bolland, Jim Lee, Joe Kubert, David Finch, Jason Fabok, Seung Eun Kim and Moebius. He uses a mixture of traditional and digital techniques to create his artworks.
The goal of his work is to capture the same spirit he enjoyed reading as a child and to bring the same joy to others. He dreams of his work being featured on a large platform one day in order to tell African inspired tales and to share the stories of Africa with the world.
His most successful project to date was the opportunity he was granted by the Gauteng Gambling Board to create a weekly webcomic. The goal of the campaign was to educate people on the dangers of irresponsible gambling and what steps could be followed when gambling-related addictions arose.
