Anton Kannemeyer (aka Joe Dog) is well known as the co-founder of Bitterkomix. Born in Cape Town, he graduated with an MA in fine arts from Stellenbosch University and subsequently lectured in fine art and illustration for a number of years before devoting himself full-time to his work, which includes comics and fine art. His publications include 16 editions of Bitterkomix, The Big Bad Bitterkomix Handbook and several other Bitterkomix compilations (all with Conrad Botes) as well as two 2010 solo books, Pappa in Afrika and Alphabet of Democracy. He has exhibited widely in South Africa and internationally. His work has been published in numerous publications and catalogues around the world, and is held in many permanent collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Pappa in Doubt, his new title, will be available in 2015.
