If you thought all taxi drivers were the same, meet Mama Taxi. Proudly South African Mavis and her sister Zandi bravely tackle the busy roads to bring you a woman's perspective from behind the flying wheels of the taxi industry. This job needs a fearless woman with guts and a steely determination to obey the rules of the road. Shoot a red light? Talk on the cellphone while making a U-turn? Never! Be polite to cops at all times? Of course! Mama Taxi - The Collection will appeal to all who share Mavis and Zandi's world, collectors of cartoons and anyone with a sense of humor. The little pink taxi roars through the pages of five national daily newspapers.
“Taxis get such a bad press and I wanted to show the human, humorous side of things. We don’t go into politics or taxi violence. We leave that to others. All the action takes place in and around the taxi and is often more social commentary than being hysterically funny.” Extract from interview in the Citizen, Aug 2007.
