I created a drawing for the 2012 christmas season. The drawing is inspired by the strange compatibility between fuel 'scarcity' and the christmas season in Nigeria.

The SeekProject was one of twelve design studios commisioned by WarpStyle Japan to create Illustrations for Fuji Printing Co. Ltd's House Calendar 2012. The theme of 2012's calendar is "Childhood dreams becoming adult realities".
The illustrations we created feature children playing with paper planes and the children now adults, flying real planes. They were created for print and digital platforms. The illustrations were done by SeekProject partner and collaborator Samuel Achema.
Art Direction: Miss Ota/ Karo Akpokiere
Illustration: Samuel Achema
*The pdf contains twelve illustrations of children only.
I created an opentype cross platform font using Fontographer. It's my first attempt at creating a keyable font and I am glad with the outcome.
Words are an indelible part of everyday life and fonts provide us with the opportunity to omplete wstring words together to express ourselves. It feels good to be in a position were I can create fonts that can be used to express self and I look deeply forward to making a font set cith numbers and punctuation marks sometime soon.
The font is named BitSyringe and you can download it by clicking:

Fomat: OpenType OTF.

BitSyringe is a collection of letters inspired by drill bits, medical syringes and geometry. The letters maintain a stark, rigid, comical presence and yet manage to exude a hard-edged angular elegance that makes the individuality and rhythm of each letter evident despite their sameness of form.
BitSyringe is a collection of contradictions and a celebration of the modification of line's expressive value.
