Happy International Women’s Day to my amazing mother, Helen. As a little girl, my mother was made fun of for being timid. She regretted not standing up for herself. So being the only child in the family, the only girl, the female, my mother taught me how to be strong and not let anyone, especially in the male dominating career world, to bully, tease or put me down. She told me that a girl, a female, a woman, whichever way you want to put it, can be just as strong and powerful as anyone despite of their status and background and achieve anything. My father taught and showed me strength from the outside, but my mother was the emotional backbone which holds me together. Without her courage and wisdom, I wouldn’t be the person I am today and doing what I love most on my own.
Happy International Women’s Day, Mummy!
I am very proud to present to my fellow bloggers/followers a page dedicated to them for being supportive of me. I remember making a promise once that I would link this blog to my publisher’s website, and here’s my promise. Please do go to the website to check it out. Thank you to you all. You know who you are.
A sneak peek of what’s to come on the 24th August 2016 (above).
It has been a while. There have been so many changes with the launch date. But it is FINALLY happening. The launch date for my publishing company is due to launch on the 24th August. If anything happens in terms of the production side of things, it will launch a day or two later. But either way, it will happen this month. It will. It definitely will.
I want to apologize if I keep on changing the dates in the past. Sometimes when I think everything is going great and has a date set, something from the production side of things would happen and delay everything. I do want to thank all my dear bloggers and followers for the huge support, and I hope you will all continue to support me and join me on this amazing new chapter in life.
Watch out for this space very very very soon 🙂 – 24th August 2016.
Much love always,
I have a good friend, Oudvin Cassell, whom I had written a short post about in the past. He is an amazing artist/illustrator. There is nothing he cannot do when it comes to art and design. I am here to continuously help spread the word of his works and talent. Below is a message from his teacher/manager, Renee.
“Introducing the works of Illustrator Oudvin Cassell, and also some of my work too. Oudvin and I have known each other since he was a high school student artist, who was part of my short-lived NGO in Liberia called the Art House (disbanded due to the war). Oudvin then went on to get his art degree in the US and has been freelancing ever since. We have partnered to create comics and I am also managing him. He has completed two assignments, one making art for Liberian school books and another to story board a short film in the US. We will also put other work we create from time to time. I hope you enjoy our comics. More to come. If anyone is interested in hiring Oudvin for graphics work or to do commission work for you personally, please inbox me.”
Here are the following links to the website/page of Oudvin and Renee, and their contact details:

My most favourite of all. Oudvin designed this shirt with a friend to create an awareness to fight Ebola.
