So I got some new reading material from an old friend of mine, Ajani Oloye. I didn’t even know he had published work until he recently posted on Facebook (I’m terrible!). I think getting published is great and I commend anyone who puts effort into getting their work out there. I’m sure it’s not easy. I also love to share the works of people I actually know, especially if I think it’s good.
I was really touched by ABVD. It is a short comic book about his experience with being diagnosed with cancer. Although it is a quick read, it’s pretty moving.
I also ordered his book of sketches, which were full of great drawings of people out and about in public places while he was in Japan/NY. I really liked some of the water color pieces he had included.
If you are curious and would like to see his work and/or order his books I would highly recommend you do! You can find his order information on his website: www.ajanioloye.com
