David Onaolapo

Illustrator

Hi, my name is David, I'm a 24 Year old Nigerian currently living in the UK. I've got a degree in business management and am currently freelancing as an independent artist while trying to create something bigger. I've made a lot of great connections and had a lot of fun experiences along the way; and I'm more than happy to talk about those when the opportunity arises.
