Johan was born in South Africa but now resides in the UK. He is such a multi-skilled individual that I hesitate to catergorize him as anything, for fear of belittling his many other talents! He is a graphic designer, a business consultant, an IT specialist, a photographer, an editor, a locksmith, a magician, a dancer - the list goes on and on. Here are some designs of clothing prints that Johan created for the Bengoshi Akuma Cycling Club, a cycling club consisting of lawyers based in London UK.
