Myself

I’m Ayomide Ajayi. An 18 years young artist. I’m an undergraduate,I intend to study fine arts in the higher institution though.I’m a lover of sport and God.

I started drawing in 2014, i’ve grown quite fond of it. I don’t believe in sticking to one trade so I revolve around art and try out other forms of art,i’m also a poet and I play the keyboard.

My Works

This work is titled POVERTY.

Silver and gold I lack none

The sin upon my soul is one

Servants yield to my call

Letting some go none stop

The birds sing my praise

The trees bow to me in many ways

A king worth horses in my name

I dwell in richies and fame

At my beck would people shout

More slaves I send to scout

During the day my head is up

At night my joy is lost

I crave the moon in the day

So my heart I could relay

Of my poverty does the moon know

The only one my feelings I show

Great lads assemble

With excitement they tremble

Wanting to impress me

Some even come with scripts

For the fame

They become lame

Wanting to taste this quick turning matron dame

Love I crave

My wealth is their prey

I’m poorly rich

The moon I tell all these

My status maybe high

But the rich also cry

All my life I’ve always wanted to create animations, i didn’t merely just watch cartoons as a child, i wanted to create mine;to take my ideas and turn them into two dimensional pieces of art. My toons serve as a stepping stone towards achieving my dream. I began drawing toons after secondary school in preparation for life ahead as an animator. Though the confines of life have placed me in school, studying to attain a white collar job, the joy i derive from making toons and animations will always be my driving force.
