Jokotade (JOE-KOH-TAH-DAY) is a Nigerian-American artist, illustrator, and designer who inspires a global audience with her art, words, and voice. With signature hand-drawn illustrations and drawings found on gifts, stationery, decor and homeware, the premise of her work celebrates modern elegance, timeless simplicity with graceful style. She is best known for her iconic use of minimal clean lines to amplify the messages of love, harmony, beauty and calm.

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.
