Bahari Blue #3 – The Fluid Illustrations of Malcolm Carter Wopé 

Malcolm Carter Wopé is a freelance concept artist, illustrator, art director and 2D animator based in Cape Town, South Africa. Malcolm boasts an impressive portfolio that runs across animation, indie video games and comics. Wopé is currently the lead artist responsible for the design direction of the upcoming Netflix animated series, Mama K’s Super 4. He’s also hard at work on his hotly anticipated webcomic, Kung Fu is Dead.

By sharing my talent and work with the rest of the world, I hope to encourage and inspire fellow artists in the same way in which my influences have inspired me.
