June’s theme of the artist collective I recently join, London Community Artists, was rain. This was my entry and I thought of giving it more life and turned into a GIF.
An Illustration of Aisha Yesufu, a Human rights activist that has been in the fore front of movements such as #Bringbackourgirls and the most recent, #SayHerNameNigeria and #AbujaRaidOnWomen, based on protests against the wrongful arrest and assault by the police towards women during a raid in an Abuja club in late April, 2019.
An editorial illustration I made with the batik wax technique for a MATS BootCamp 2019 assignment based on Beth Kempton‘s book, “Wabi Sabi: Japanese Wisdom FOr a Perfectly Imperfect Life.”
My illustration for Earth day 2019. Although we mark earth day yearly, time is running out and solutions must be implemented that would save the earth. We would have to make a lot of sacrifcies but considering that earth is our only home, we cannot slack on them.
Inspired by a picture from Lana H. Haroun, this is a moment that was captured during the Sudan protest/revolution on the rising cost of living in April, 2019. It was a picture of Alaa Salah, a 22 year old engineering and Architecture student who who activiely took part in the protest in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan.
An illustration I worked on after #ArewaMeToo exploded on Twitter and other social media networks in February 2019. The issue called out me as this has gone too long especially in Northen Nigeria, where such travesty is swept under the carpet for the Family name’s protection without any concern for the victims of sexual assualt, harassment and/or pedophilia. This was an awakening that many hope to keep feeding.
I love “Children of Blood and Bone” by Tomi Adeyemi. The images were stuck in my head and I had to get them out. Cannot wait for the next book.
A quick illustration I worked on how I should have been reading. The book is “Feck Perfuction” by James Victore. A really good read, I must say.
Disney princesses inspired me to create Nigerian brides off them. Have a look.
