Guess who commissioned a custom made art piece this time? Professor Joshua Ogunwole, the vice chancellor of Bowen University!

It has been the highlight of 2021 for me to get such an important person to support my craft. I enjoyed making this portrait of him and his wife so much.

I have to say it was quite challenging though, it wasn't a walk in the park. His jacket especially was quite something, I was working on that alone for the best part of 2 days. The whole piece was done in graphite and charcoal.
