Recent Work: Vector Fine Art Painting

I have just finished my second commission for the year: a decorative painting using vector software. The art will be printed as a giclee. The tentative name is 'Earthen Vessels'.

Hope you like it.

Recent Event: 1 World Manga Comics for West Africa!

The Comics Hut, a subsidiary of Literamed Publications Nig Ltd, has obtained the rights to produce the 1 World Manga comics series for West Africa.

This comics project was sponsored by the World Bank and produced by the fine people at Viz Media, U.S.A. The stories were written by Annette Roman and illustrated by Leandro Ng. I headed The Comics Hut creative team that painted the white and black comic pages to full colour for the African market.

Below is one of the publicity poster designs.

The stories are about an orphan, Rei, who travels the world contending with the problems of HIV/AIDS, girls' education, child soldiers, corruption and the like. Don't forget to get your copies.

Past Works: Story Book Cover Painting

I posted some line art commissioned by Durano Publishing late last year but could not recall the title of the book. Well, I stumbled on the cover painting and the design I suggested some time ago, so here they are.

The book is titled NO PAIN NO GAIN written by Olayinka Oye.

Past Works: Favorite Vector Illustrations

I enjoy vector illustrations - the careful laying of one transparent colour graphic over another to build up a beautiful finish. Hence the reason I am starting my posts this new year with one of my favorite commissions of 2008.

Below are closeups of the illustrations.
