Clyde Beech

Clyde Beech is a Cape Town born visual artist and designer. Even though he grew up with adverse circumstances in the Cape Flats, he was driven and motivated to reach his dream of becoming a professional artist. He now specialises in comic book art and sequential story telling. He is an Art Director, illustrator, digital painter, concept artist and colour art specialist. He’s worked on and helped develop some of the top comic books in the country, such as South Africa’s favourite super hero comic, Kwezi, as well as the widely distributed, soccer comic, Supa Strikas. He’s had a brief stint in 2D animation as a background and texture artist working of shows for both Disney Junior UK and Cookie Jar Entertainment Canada. He loves reading and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of comics, enjoys gaming, pop culture and has a background in martial arts. Clyde’s ultimate goal is to inspire and build a viable creative platform and infrastructure for future artist and creatives in South Africa.
