Who is the Mumu Illustrator? Tell us about you, your background… growing up.
Mumu illustrator is hard to define. Like most people I’ve been drawing since I was a child, unlike others I decided to make a living out of it. I spent my first 10yrs in Kano then moved to Nasarawa and then finally Abuja where I spent my secondary school years. I went to university at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, where I studied fine and applied arts. I never took art seriously until my dad advised me to study it in university instead of economics as I had wanted to. A year after I left University I started the comic Mumu Juju, as I was doing all the work on the comic at the time I became the illustrator for Mumu Juju and so the Mumu Illustrator was born
Where is Home?
Home for me is wherever my system is, wherever I can work.
Who or what got you into digital art / illustration
The future of Comic illustration in Nigeria. How different do you think the industry will be in a few years time?
Well based on what I can see now it’s going to be crazy. As long as guys keep pushing, as long as they stay original and don’t try to copy Marvel or D.C., we’re good.
Do you have a website and/or blog you visit often?
Naaa in usually just on Pinterest or my favorite artists social media accounts. I’m usually all over, never in one place.
Can you describe your favourite colour in detail? If Not then
It’s a combination actually. The interplay between the warmth and coolness of yellow and purple is something I always find interesting.
Are you a MAC or PC lover?
Whichever on does the work. I use a MAC now though because I was under the impression it would do everything i was but alas for that I’d have to build mine
Movies or Music. If you could watch one movie or listen to one song for the rest of your life
Music definitely. If I could listen to one song it would be Prodigal son by Rationale and as for the movie it would be……..Kung Fu Hustle.
