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.

Coat patterns.

This is a concept illustration for a european style coat. Its conservative, elegant and kind of old school. But its supposed to convey a formal, powerful look. I wanted the sketch model to have a strong European look, hence the turtleneck and the accessories.

Injustice

This was an illustration I did just to express myself a bit, to depict the state of things in my country, to silently gesture how a wealthy politician can tip the scales of justice in their favour. How with their vast wealth, they can guide the hands of lady justice, and bend her to their will. How they render her sword ineffective, and her scales unbalanced. This is wrong, but then again, its just me, expressing myself.

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.
