My name is Joshua Okoromodeke. I was born on the 27th of November 1977, a Nigerian by birth. I am a talented cartoonist and comic artist, a story write and I have been in the act of writing and making comics from my teenage days, right from Secondary School with the hope of making a full time career in the production and publishing of African comics to the world in the near future.
I studied business relations in the University of Nigeria but my gift and passion has always been in the arts and with it, I have worked with numerous organizations in Nigeria, such as the French Cultural Centre for arts as an art cover designer, I have worked with the French School as an art instructor, and I have worked with the Jean Pigozzi African Contemporary Art Museum in Switzerland as an African artist.
My concept of comic and cartoons are African based and are multi cultured which is a deliberate attempt on my part to showcase the vast and rich cultures of Africa through comic book and cartoon mediums with the aim of competing with other existing comic book publishing companies in the world and to create awareness of the existence of African comic books and create an interest in comic book dealers overseas.
My work was inspired by the works, ideas and creations of many existing comic book artists I have come across over the years, artist like John Byrne, Jim Lee, Chravis Charest, Scott Williams and a host of others, of which I am a big fan of and whose works also ignited the desire and passion in me to become a great artist in time to come.
