  • Before this drawing is forever in possession of its new owner there will be a big reveal here in the UK soon!
Over 215 hours of pure bliss drawing this being. He touched the hearts of many and I just hope his essence is felt when it’s revealed to the public in person.

  • A special birthday message to a very special and talented lady! @thebeverlynaya 
When we were really young kids, Beverly and I made a promise to follow our passions and to become the very best version of ourselves in life. From singing to dancing to sports and performing arts, she has always been a 🌟 
I can not express how truly proud I am of this incredible woman. With so many talents under her wings she has prevailed in becoming a notable and laudable actress in the Nigerian film industry! 🙏🏾 Bev, may you continue to soar higher and higher! May this new chapter of life bring about an abundance of love, joy, health and prosperity. You’ve made the whole family proud. I will always be your number one fan! 
Love you always ❤️

  • I just recently agreed to a commission where I will be drawing a portrait of a man who co-founded one of the biggest and most important Rock Bands of All Time! I am SUPER stoked and deeply grateful as the being I will be drawing left a powerful imprint on the world and is still celebrated today.

I thank you all sooooo very much for your amazing continued support and for the new growth of supporters I gained after drawing this portrait of @naomi and after the legendary @nas shared my drawing of himself on his IG page... I still can’t believe that happened... 🙏🏾
Much love to you all ❤️

  • In this modern western world we are surrounded by a lot of artificial layouts which I feel hinder us from accessing our full human potential. Many of us are limited to the amount of greenery or “natural settings” we see due to the urban landscapes we live in.
Over the past couple of years I have been compelled to surround myself in an environment which hasn’t been tampered with by man. It has brought me an insurmountable level of peace and a feeling of alignment with who I truly am.
Being someone who has tendencies to overthink, I also noticed that the colour green doesn’t arouse much thought which triggers reactions that can lead to unwanted emotions. 
It has become highly important for me to now see or be in the presence of greenery everyday 💚

  • Embrace mistakes!

Over the past 10 years I have drawn over 150 portraits - investing over 15,000 hours as each portrait drawing on average takes around 80 to 130 hours to complete.
In every single portrait I have ever drawn I have made countless mistakes along the way. The beauty about making those mistakes is that there is ALWAYS a hidden gem which beholds a wealth of insight and understanding. A realisation which in turn aids in achieving results. But! The only way to acquire this gem is to not give up and to not be afraid of making mistakes. For without mistakes there is no room for progress simply because there will be no lessons to learn.
