Thanks for the feature John.

Whole-heartedly agree with Jon's point that there is a lot of under-leveraged talent in the South(-ern) African creative community. Whilst the artisans we work with might not be the exact group he is referring to, it amazes us at African Cartel how there is so much creativity and positivity amongst the robot artists, who have unbelievable obstacles and challenges in their daily lives. It is most humbling working with these guys.

Although there is much logistics we are currently dealing with, working with street sellers who are very much internet/social media novices, and coming to terms with the intricacies and laws surrounding exporting and shipping, we are all learning lots and our artist's work is finally reaching a far bigger global market than they/we could ever imagine.
