My Mother Planted

My Mother Planted

Here's a story I illustrated for the African Storybook Project. It was written by Tom Sabwa and translated into Zulu by my wife Andile. This version includes the English and Zulu translations as part of the image.

On the African Storybook site the images are without text to allow for easy translation. It's currently available in Lusoga (the original), isiZulu, Sepedi, Kiswahili, Ng'aturkana. Afrikaans, French, and English.

Also, thanks to the Creative Commons license, another book on the site has used one of my illustrations. That one is written in Ateso, though, so I don't know what it's about.
