Educate yourself..

This art piece was for an eBook that was titled educate yourself. I just went for a straightforward “woman reading a book”. What made this piece special to me is that I experimented with an art style that’s supposed to give it a realistic, kinda movie like look. I think it turned out okay..

EBook cover art

This was an art piece I made for the cover of an upcoming eBook. Its about the love life of a high school student documented through her diary entries. So I tried to be as straightforward with this one as possible. I portrayed a young woman lying on an a field, with her diary next to her. I tried to capture a daydreaming “head in the clouds” look on the young woman’s face.

Ankara print design.

This was a fashion illustration for simply Victoria couture. It’s simple casual style 


perfect for a big party or a small get together.It’s Nigerian Ankara, its very pattern heavy so I tried to capture the exact pattern on the fabric that was used.

Black pride.

This was an illustration I did on black pride and feminism. Its common knowledge the challenges black people face, and also the ones that women face in today’s society. So it is safe to assume that there will be some challenges in being a black woman. Whether it’s in the constant buzz of the United States, the ambient elegance of France, or the crude splendor of Nigeria, black women face the same issues everywhere, a combination of both racial and sexual bias. Its something that constantly happens, and possibly something that is always going to happen. Being a black woman isn’t something you can change, nor is it something you should change. Rather you should own it, and define it, on your own terms. A black woman is always going to stand out, is always going to have an identity among black and white people. Its up to them to define that identity, whether they’ll become a symbol of mediocrity, or greatness. A black woman stands out, but a successful black woman doesn’t just stand out, she inspires, she turns heads and sparks conversations, she is a true symbol of power. Every black woman should try to look past the oppression they face, and strive to be the best they can be. Because when you get to the top, you’ll realize how much of a blessing it is to be a black woman.

I tried to make the illustration as basic and as straightforward as possible, I tried to capture the sketch model in a feminine, but strong pose, against a backdrop of the word “BLACK”. Its meaning is simple, a black woman is powerful, and she should be proud of it.

Hope.

This was an artwork I made to depict a state of hope. Remember that feeling, the one where you find yourself in a really dire situation, and it seems you don’t really have any plan, or any way out at the tlook, but you’re still hopeful anyway?. Well I attempted to depict that exact feeling in this piece. Its a feeling of hope, but not optimism, a feeling where there seems to be no end in sight, immediate or far, but there’s a glimmer of hope that there’ll be an end. There’s no upbeat feeling or attitude about it, but there’s hope, and its all there is.

I used a combination of colours that I felt conveyed this feeling, greens and yellows. The colors are bright, as hope is a good thing, but I tried to give the girl a slightly saddened and worn out look, still her head is lifted in hope, and it’s all she has, but to get through anything, its all she needs.
