Speaking on how he started, he says, “I started doodling when I was a kid really, because my dad was a sculptor so I’ll say the gene has always been there. But I started taking it seriously about 7 years ago when I got an admission to study Art at Yaba College of Technology, and I fell in love with illustrations, comic art, character design and all other digital art forms.”

“Though the school wasn’t really big in these areas so there wasn’t room for me to explore my new found love until my second year when we had to go for IT (industrial training) and I met some guys already doing amazing work in the digital art industry and that was the beginning for me.”

“Right now, I’d say I’m still evolving and constantly trying to get better. But working on countless projects has given me the opportunity to create a unique style for people to associate me with, which for the most part can be a bit challenging finding one’s style amongst the diverse creatives we have out there.”

On what he inspires him, Tejuwhales says, “A lot of materials inspire me to create art from movies to music to taking a walk, or even reading a book. But I’d say everyday scenery that I can relate with plays a major role on the type of art I create now and hopefully in the nearest future I’d like to create content that won’t only entertain but people can relate to hence creating a spark for people to do things differently.”
