Stellenbosch Academy Student and Lecturer named in the Picture This! International Children’s Book Competition 2018

There’s nothing we love more than seeing the students and lecturers at the Stellenbosch Academy do well and this piece of news covers both! Marike le Roux (our HOD for Discourse and Illustration) and Monique Groenewald (a third year student) entered thePicture This! International Children’s Book Competition 2018 in May. We’ve just heard that they are winners!

Each year only three illustrators are chosen from each country (SA, UK, Belgium / Netherlands and Germany) and with both Monique and Marike winning, two out of the three SA winners are from the Academy!

Amazing work – we’re so proud!

Theo Guignard – Labyrinth

Theo Guignard is a French illustrator who we must say, has a serious eye for detail! His latest project, Labyrinth, is a number of incredibly intricate mazes for children.

Spend some time in these illustrations and you’ll be lost for hours! So much work and of such high quality!
