Drawing to me has always been an easy way of relaxing. I am mainly into realistic portrait drawing, which is very easy and straight forward, but other times I feel the need to do more. The need to relate to my society and anyone else who could understand me, at these times I draw conceptual or imaginary art, like the first of this collection. It is a form of tribute to the Nigerian fashion, and all brides and all women. Proof that our culture tho dark in some areas is still very beautiful.

Other drawings in my portfolio include those of inanimate objects, it seems though that I am quite into the stringed musical instrument.
There’s not too much stories behind my drawings, I simply draw what I feel like and I try to make myself proud along the way.

The sniper at the top is one I call the price 2 (focus) which is the second drawing in a series called THE PRICE it show a sniper aiming at a far of target so aware of it that he loses site of so much beauty around him as well as danger, and yet in the midst of it all, and no mater how tragic his story ends beauty would remain beautiful, as the faries dance beneath his gun, and an enemy trains a gun at his head

The second is the third piece called THE PRICE 3 (freedom) which depicts an African woman reaching higher for something unseen as she throws away a leaking calabash, it holds her efforts within but it’s a waste, it leaks. So the hard work she had put in has been her burden, which is why I urge everyone to be like her and let go of that burden, don’t be afraid to reach for something better, don’t be afraid of freedom These ones are the gems in my collection

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.
