My specialty is Line Art Cartoon Illustrations with digital colors using Photoshop.

My style is a fusion of Walt Disney "Stretch and Squash" expression, Astrix and African Characters I have seen around in real life.

I had professional training in Graphic Design and Communication and Cartoon Drawing in two different colleges in the early 90s for 7 terms and later worked as a 2d Animator (a skill I learned through working experience), Illustrator and Storyboard Artist for ad agencies, publishers and film production houses.

I normally work in three stages:

1) Colored pencil sketches based on a client briefing, either through written or spoken communication, with numerous changes until the final sketch is approved by the client ready for Clean Up and Color.

2) Line Art (Clean Up), with a normal HB Pencil, which is eventually scanned for a "contrast edit" using Photoshop.

3) Color Application using Photoshop with highlights.
