Editorial cartoon: Felicity Fowl

Client: The Property Magazine

Tony Vaughan, MD of Media Nova in Cape Town commissioned Konrad Rode to draw a series of editorial cartoons which became the Felicity Fowl series, depicting happenings in upper income class residential property in South Africa.

This example refers to the new trend of offering buyers property on wine states with endless free product as an incentive – the logical result can be seen to the right, where Felicity Fowl the ostrich and her buddy are getting sloshed.

One would think it would take an alcoholic to fall for that one, but then again, wine farms can be quite romantic ...

What you don't see in this cropped version of the cartoon, is a road sign pointing to the estate saying "Dronkverdriet Wine Estate". The English translation for dronkverdriet is "alcoholic remorse", but that doesn't do the word justice at all.

By the way, don't those two just look so ... colonial?
