Recent Work: Tribute To An Old Friend

I mentioned in my previous post that an old friend of mine had passed. I was so overwhelmed by the many testimonies of goodwill during his burial ceremony, I was moved to say Adieu in my own way- a portrait painting to remember him by.

Recent Event: Studio Update

Wow! The past months have been a roller coaster of adventures, challenges and demanding work. I have been so busy, and at same time distracted, I have left this blog unattended. I suffered a spell of poor health, had to relocate my studio apartment, handle a demanding and protracted book illustration, design and layout (of which I am not allowed to blog about). And just as I am about to breathe, I got news of a dear old friend's passing. We've been close pals since my days on campus at University of Lagos. This week I'll be travelling to visit his family.

I am determined to get back to my usual studio updates as soon as I settle down after my trip. I have a lot of projects lined up for the remaining of the year. Please tag along.

The following pencil drawings were made for a children story book in 2011. It's about the Tortoise and the Hare (not the tale about the race).

Have a great week!
