Attaining success

This was the cover art for a magazine article on success attainment. I went with a straightforward “house of cards” theme, which each card being a vital component a person has to manage if he is to eventually be successful. His path to success will be represented by his climb up the cards.

submerged.

This was an art piece I did to depict a “happy place”. Its the place everyone has in their lives where they go to forget all their worries and live in the moment. The piece depicts a young girl in a kind of underwater utopia. A place where she loses herself in the beauty of it all, a place where she is happy.

Although the concept is a happy one, I didn’t try to use too many bright colors, but just enough to get the message across.

Ebony and ivory

This was an artwork I did while exploring possible concepts for an art piece with mixed races. Its really straightfoward, two women of different colors, lying in a field with their hair intertwined in a sea of black. Its meaning is simple, harmony between races. I tried to give this artwork a realistic but somehow grim look.

Queen of hearts.

This was an artwork that I’ve always wanted to attempt. It’s based on one of the card titles(in this case, the Queen of hearts) coming out of their cards. This really took me a while as I experimented a lot with colors and concepts. I finally settled on a brown monotone to give the artwork an aged, realistic look as it seemed like a good visual style.

Misconception

This artwork is for an African awareness campaign. It also reflects my feelings about my continent. Its based on the misconceptions some folks have about Africa. The woman holding her child is suffering and impoverished, which is the concept many have about Africa, but her reflection is happy and well fed which is the reality of many Africans. Most Africans don’t live half naked in huts and trees. They are intelligent, well fed, well clothed and well housed people. I went with wide tipped brushes to give the artwork a realistic look.
