Ray Whitcher

Getting involved with The Art of Kindness was something I did without hesitation. It’s an amazing initiative, and one that should be wholly supported by all, especially in times as scary and frustrating as these.

We all need a little colour in our lives, and I’m happy to add to that!

Ray Whitcher is a comic writer and illustrator from Johannesburg, South Africa, and is currently completing a Ph.D. on comics. Between all of this, Ray also lectures in Animation and Critical Theory at Wits University’s Digital Arts Department.

Growing up on a steady diet of Saturday Morning Cartoons, Comic Books and Video Games, a career in the arts was basically unavoidable. Ray’s academic work has been published in several journals and books and he has had the privilege of contributing a comic to the Star Wars: Clone Wars Confidential series as well as being part of the team that produced the animated music video for Marshmello/YungBlud/Blackbear Tongue Tied.
