The blindness of religion.

This is an illustration I made recently about a common issue, especially in many African countries. Many people believe in a higher power, a force that guides their actions and its outcome, which is fine, I have my faith as well. What is not fine is that some people believe so strongly in a higher power to bring a desired change in their lives that they completely disregard their own ability. Prayer is good, but it will amount to nothing if you dont act. It is ultimately your actions that bring change to the world around you. 

The illustration portrays a man praying for a house, while he pays no attention to the materials he can use to build that house. The message is simple: You can believe in God, but believe in yourself as well.

I’ll also try to post something at least every week, don’t forget to follow if you like what you see. #postaweek #illustration

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.

Stage queen.

This was a piece of art I created called the stage queen. Inspired by a dancer I watched at the theatre. It depicts a woman who flourishes in the spotlight, who loves to captivate the audience anywhere she is, be it in a small room with thirty people, or a grand audience of thousands. She feels all the attention focused on her, she embraces it, and enjoys it. She finds happiness in the applause of strangers, in the wows of their lips, in the noise of their ovations and the awe in their faces. She may be anything else, anywhere else, but the stage is her domain, and she alone is queen.

Ebook cover art.

This was an illustration for an eBook titled strange bedfellows. I read the story and its main theme was seduction and betrayal. The cover illustration is pretty straightforward, a man and a woman engaging in an elegant dance(covering the seduction theme.) The man is wearing a mask, which depicts that he is not who he seems to be, which hints towards betrayal.
