My name is Justice Daminabo, a student of the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO). I am a cartoonist and illustrator -I create funny cartoon illustrations of celebrities both in Nigeria and abroad. I also make fun cartoon characters of random people for t-shirt and other printings.
I have always had a passion for drawing and the visual arts -I started sketching since I was in kindergarten. I Chose cartooning as the path to follow because I love this branch of art. Knowing that I can manipulate anything through the use of cartoons as I love to think out of the box. I am motivated by my dreams and what I can achieve with cartooning and animation.
This skill of mine has been self developed. In my drawings, I tend to feature the bulging physical attributes of a real life person, like the angle of the eyes, shape of the face, size of the eyes and noses etc.
To create a resembling cartoon of that person, I had to learn digital drawing from the internet (mostly YouTube). I also make cartoon videos from funny videos, GIF, short films etc. I am now able to paint cartoons on walls and more or less anything with a surface.
I plan on making my brand renowned, create more traffic and awareness for my self so more people can see and appreciate my work. I also want to make short movies with cartoons of real life actors and have the actors do a voice over to their cartoons in the movie.
I would also like to make music videos for artistes and make catchy cartoon commercials for various brands out there but for now, I just want to make cartoons on the different news and gossips through the months to keep my account going as I desire to grow my awareness to hundreds of thousands of people if not millions, so when I start creating my videos the attention won’t die out easily.
