Best friends August and Zinzi are 30-somethings from Cape Town.
They embrace their curves and love the skin they're in, not letting it hold them back from doing the things they love.
My hope from these illustrations is; that their friendship, zest for life and adventures inspire women of all shapes, sizes and colours to be confident with who they are.
