My name is Chantal de Jager and I work full time as an architect in Cape Town, South Africa.

I love to draw these quirky animals and scenes after hours as meditation to get rid of my anxiety and stress after a long day. I call it Coco’s diary of odd creatures. My goal is to write and illustrate a children’s book in the near future.

My little Black Book

I call it Coco’s Diary of Odd Creatures

Mister ‘Gebra’. His mother is a giraffe and his father is a zebra. He loves Ice-cream and noodles

The hidden Island of magic, mystery and a very big fish

Bob the majestic bulldog. In his heart he is certain that he was meant to be a bunny

The amazing Billy and his aquatic Roadshow where anything and everything is possible

Terrance has a specific doughnut affliction

The Happy eggs. Bringing diversity to the foreground

Autumn birds

Sir Bearamilo always sits at the head of the table and only drinks freshly squeezed orange juice
