Lagos Illustrated is a personal tribute to my place of birth - Lagos, Nigeria. Arguably the most populous city in West Africa, Lagos is an intriguing city that never sleeps and like the city, the people, places and fashion are always alive. In this series, I seek to capture the heart, spirit, culture and life of modern day Lagosians with each hand-drawn illustration.
