Cartoon for stage: "Why't Burp"

Client: Chris Vorster

Konrad designed and illustrated this poster back in 1998/1999, for Chris Vorster's theatre comedy "Why't Burp". Subtitled "'n Afrikaanse Western", it was a satire of the Wyatt Erp legend, but with a local flavour, ek sê.

Konrad was obviously encouraged by the naive, crude and cartoon-like style that was so popular with young Afrikaners back then – a style Conrad Botes brilliantly portrayed and popularised in the Afrikaner-punk comic publication Bitterkomix, although this is actually one of Konrad's default styles - no frills, no pretense. He just never imagined it could be used to make money.

According to Chris, the poster was so popular in the Durban leg of the tour that all the posters disappeared soon after being posted in the streets.
