Bolaji Olaloye, also known as Beejay art-nerd, does freelance art and illustration.
“I have a B.A. in Graphic Design from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka but I’m a self-taught digital artist because digital art was not in the school’s curriculum at the time. Drawing is pretty much my life and when I’m not doing that, you can catch me playing video games.”
Talking about how he started, he says, “Well, I have always loved drawing since I was a kid. I started out drawing my favourite cartoon characters and pretty much anything I find interesting. I also got the chance to study Fine and Applied Art in the university. Where I got the basic knowledge and fundamental of art then backed it up with a great deal of self practice. I have worked professionally for both Nigerian and foreign clients but more of the latter. I am constantly learning and practicing, currently doing a drawing/painting marathon for the 365days of this year.”
Animated movies, video games, comic books, pop culture and all things retro inspire him.
