Thank you

Thank you everyone for being a part of my journey to God knows where.
Thank you for the lovely comments each time I post.
Thank you for the many e-mails I got telling me how much my art inspires them.
Thank you to the several people I've personally met that said they were a fan of my work.
Thank you to the bloggers that have featured me on their blogs/websites.
Thank you for the 400+ likes on facebook.
Thank you to the 170+ blog followers.
Thank you to the 70+ followers on Tweet tweet. :)
Thank you to the 10+ followers on Tumblr.

Thank you to the inconspicuous fans that I don't know about except when I check my stats. (I'm watching you)

Thank you for making my year great.

I hope you guys have a fantastic new year.
I don't believe in New Years resolutions, I believe in the present moment, the "Now" moment. If you want to do anything, do it now. Don't wait till tomorrow don't wait till next year. Waiting till a new year shouldn't be the reason to start "a fresh".
That's my little rant.

Take care,
see you next year.

Awolowo Road

One of the busy roads in Lagos. I took this photo on the
iPhone using the Instagram app.

I'm not usually a big fan of square-shaped photos
but this one looks good.

American Footballer

Acrylic on Canvas.

I painted this last Christmas. How time flies.
My friend asked me to paint this for her for a gift.
I was slightly hesitant because I had never painted an athlete
so I wasn't sure how it would turn out.

Do I like it? mmmm....she loves it and that's
all that matters ;)

p.s. I apologize for the bad picture I didn't have the time to
take a good one.

Happy 203 blog post.

Patterns and People




Bar Beach Market

I was looking through a photography site and I came across
this layering technique. I tried it out and voila!

My favourite is the shoemaker.
What's yours?

Woman in Scarf

Inspired by this post to make it a habit to quickly sketch people.

It's actually pretty amazing to have a skill that can capture
a moment with just a pencil and paper.

Thank God.

I've recently been renovating my room, so piles of my books are
scattered around the floor. I took a picture and labelled them for kicks.

I'm interested to know from you guys,
what can you tell about me from my piles of
