Born in Cape Town in 1958, Zapiro couldn’t imagine a career in cartooning, so he studied architecture at University of Cape Town.

ZAPIRO is away on a visit to France, but was able to file all his cartoons while away, by preparing two before his departure, and two 'on the road' as it were. This one was drawn on the fold down table of an aircraft, making him the fastest draw in the West on that day, at 300 km/hour. Another cartoon was drawn (more slowly) on a bus!
