Recent Work: Mother Tongue Design (1)

I designed a page featuring article about Yoruba proverbs using a popular one as a vehicle for the article. The piece is for the INDIGO: Mother Tongue exhibition/competition. I am grateful to my friend and fellow illustrator Raphael Agboola and editor, Kola Olaniyan for their help and knowledge of ede Yoruba.

Recent Work: 'Sanitation Is Sexy' Poster Design

I just discovered a call for submission yesterday with the final date tomorrow. The Acumen Fund is asking for submissions in any media to promote the need for sanitation. I was not thrilled to discover that about 2.5 billion people still live without basic sanitation and about 4500 children die daily from related causes.

My concept is not so elegant. I decided to go straight to the point. It might come off a bit crude but, hey, we are talking about shit, right? The entire design was created in CorelDRAW X4.

Recent Work: Self Portrait

I decided to change my profile image from photo to illustration. The attempt is a loose one. I feel there was no need for detailed work since it will mainly be viewed in a small size.
