Ayodeji Oyekanmi, also known as Baze, is a Cartoonist who considers himself more of an introvert, an avid lover of football and animations.
The graduate of Geography from University of Ibadan grew up looking cartoons like every other kid (caricature on the pages of newspapers and magazines or animations).
“I even tried drawing mine but I discovered it wasn’t my talent and I stopped trying until I met a digital painter around June 2017 who told me you don’t need to know how to draw all you need is a passion for it. This actually opened my mind to a world of possibilities and I tapped in.”
“Around October 2017, I started learning how to digitally draw cartoon images by watching YouTube video tutorials and getting help for better understanding while developing myself, and finally I focused on portrait cartoon designs and illustrations. Now I teach at a secondary school and still freelance as a cartoonist/graphics designer.”
His love for cartoons and beauty inspires his art. “I always want to bring out the beauty in everything especially when I see a very nice image I just want to draw.”
