Born in Pretoria and now based in Jahannesburg, OHYESLORD is self-taught, which I would have never guessed had he not mentioned it. His style of illustration is very unique and on a high standard when it comes to digital illustration. His ability proves that…Continue

I want to thank Andrew Monks for putting it out and believing in me, due to all the doubt I had in myself. More electronic works will be coming in the future! Whether they are…Continue
