Lion state of mind

Africa for the Africans… at home and abroad! – Marcus Garvey
This particular design known as the lion state of mind. This is because I believe that as a continent, Africa has gone against all odds to produce the best. I am proud to be African and so are you, lets hold our heads up high and even as we soar to greater heights, lets not forget about the Mother Land. Africa is the future, please come back to see some more designs that we have for Africa because it is the future. Thank you.

Maureen, Milly and I

Too much fun at the studio and for no reason at all, I just had to put this ones up. This is my makeshift studio where we always go and have fun taking flicks, inventing poses and trying out the impossible. I just love it. Trying to get rid of blemishes on the face, we all know it, we all have them so lets not pretend that they do not exist. Anyway, part of my job is actually that. Cash in on this secret, keep it simple. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.



Joyce O.

Some flicks that I took during a photo shoot for Foxus Clothing Co. Introducing Joyce, one of the models who did it without much effort. She is amazing in front of the camera and best of all you need not to tell her what to do. Knowing her personally, she is an amazing character and a real sister. Keep it up Joyce.

The Coyote

The coyote was a dream come true for an African kid full of talent, passion and zeal for design. Travelling thousands of miles to see this come to reality was blessing for me. I joined the Computer Animation class in summer of 2007 as a freshman, a sucker for knowledge and a stranger to Canada. My lecturer Jim, carefully took us through what it takes to come up with a 3D model and later on how to make it move.
It is a character in a short film called the Coyote, the film written and produced by me was part of a school project that required us to come up with a story from conception to completion. We were required to come up with a story, write a storyboard and thereafter model and animate it. This took me close to 6months since it was a solo project. I had many challenges but as time went by I overcame them and to this day, thanks to this first project; I can proudly say that my journey into 3D has only just begun. I am ready to take on any challenges in this field and I am hoping that one day I work my way into Hollywood.

Free yourself

Who are you? Where are you? Are you transformed? Are you comfortable where you are?

Transformation is only valid if it is carried out with the people, not for them. Liberation is like a childbirth, and a painful one. The person who emerges is a new person: no longer either oppressor or oppressed, but a person in the process of achieving freedom. It is only the oppressed who, by freeing themselves, can free their oppressors. Take that step right now and move to the better side.

As beings living now, we have minds filled with junk – perhaps from many aeons ago. And ways of doing things that belong in the days of tooth and claw! We need to both clean out our minds, and remake new, more useful programs to help us live effectively. We think therefore we are! Our minds contain thoughts, procedures and images – pictures, sounds, feelings and taste-smells. We think by following procedures we have developed – but probably long forgotten and long been unaware of.

Flickr

Flickr is a revolution in photo storage, sharing and organization, making photo management an easy, natural and collaborative process. Get comments, notes, and tags on your photos, post to any blog, share and more! It is certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world.

Developed by Ludicorp, a Vancouver-based company. Flickr originally focused on a multi user chat room called flickrlive with real-time photo exchange capabilities. It was also more of photos collected on the web rather than photos taken by the users themselves.

I like the way the photos are organized and shared with people all across the Internet. In the same likeness I love the fact that the public can make photos private or accessible. In terms of downloading the pictures, they are also those that can be downloaded and the restricted ones.

The picture can be uploaded and downloaded in different sizes. Depending on the original size the site has capabilities to resize the photos to different sizes making it easier to download for specific purposes.

Works for me as a graphic designer as I do most of my research online. I always download pictures and store them in my computer for as long as I am doing a certain project. Flickr is a tool that has assisted in many ways, as you will always find a topic to pick pictures from the tones of blogs found on Flickr.
