Admin:    Hi bro!
Nice having you on my blog.
How is everything?
Arinfe Graphics:    We are managing bro!
Nice to join you here, Nice Blog you’ve got here.
Admin:  Yo! Thanks.
I know you as an artist, let's start here
Who is an artist, and what is the different between an artist and a graphics designer?
Arinfe Graphics:    An artist can be:
A person who creates art as an occupation.......I guess it’s even defined this way in the dictionaries.
Admin:  okay I gat yah!
What of a graphics designer, are they the same?
Arinfe Graphics:    Nope! A graphics designer is a professional within the graphic design and graphics arts industry who assembles together images, typography, or motion graphics to create a piece of design
Admin:  Awesome!
So, should I call you a graphics designer or an artist? because people missed it up a lot.
Arinfe Graphics: The terms "graphic artist" and "graphic designer" are often used interchangeably, but seeing both types of artists as the same is a lot like seeing football players and baseball players as the same just because they are both athletes. There are key differences, though there also are similarities.
Artists are majorly based on physical projects..... like painting, sculpture and d likes, while a Graphics designer are majorly based with digital aspect of arts.
Admin:  Awesome bro!
So, i guess you're a graphics designer, right?
Arinfe Graphics:    Yes!
Admin:  Ok, that's great!
So, Arinfe Graphics, can I call you that?
Arinfe Graphics:    That name belongs to just one person..... and that’s me!

How was your growing up as kid?
Your educational statue..?
Arinfe Graphics:    Well, My full name is ISHOLA AYODEJI FUNSO. I was born in the early 90’s January 11th
I was actually born at ARA land .....A small village in Osun State.
As a baby I moved to Osogbo with my parents to start my innocent life.

Arinfe Graphics:    Though the innocent life has been corrupted now ooooo. Life as not be easy.
I attended good tidings nursery and primary school, and later diverted to SURE FOUNDATION PRIMARY SCH, where I finished my Primary education. I finished my secondary school at FIRST CLASS COLLEGE OSOGBO, OSUN STATE.

Arinfe Graphics:    And I’ve always been in love with art.. Since my dad too is good at pencil drawing.
I also love working well on computer and in no time I was known for ma computer skills
I operate many Software and tried lots of hackings.
Admin:  Wow! You tried hacking?
Arinfe Graphics:    Actually, My nickname was hack- E-mail in My Primary school.

So, can I say you inherit this graphics skill from your Dad? because you said that your dad is good in pencil drawing

Admin:  Oh! I saw one of your works on Instagram, you cartoonise  Falz and Funke  Akindele's  photo, you do cartoons too?
Arinfe Graphics:    Yes. 
Actually it’s a new trending aspect of graphics; it’s called “Digital art”
Admin:  Ok.
Admin:  So, what trilled you to cartoonise  Falz and Jenifer?
Arinfe Graphics: Nothing Much, I just felt like it.
Admin:  Ok, Do you still have any cartoon image of any actor/actress?
Arinfe Graphics:    Yes. When I was learning “toonz”
I made a rough one for Mr. Odunlade  Adekola and its turnout was really impressive. And fortunately I finally met with Mr. Odunlade  Adekola, I guess that was March, 2016. Because I was the 3rd winner in the Samu Alajo competition (I don’t know if you know about that). And when I told him I was the same fan that did him a toon, He was so impressed and followed me back on IG as an honor.
That pushed my morale  because I was like “as poor as this cartoon he still appreciated it.
So, I worked more to improve......... with the help of my boss JEFF design {Lagos} I rapidly improve in toons.
And I taught of doing Falz And Funke Akindele
Admin:  Wow! That's great.
Arinfe Graphics: Funke Akindele (Nollywood Actress) took it up to her wall and it had over 35,000 Likes
I did for Toyin Aimaku, Bukola Adeeyo, Adekunle Gold and others.
Admin:  That’s awesome !!
Arinfe Graphics: After the Funke And Falz  Saga, I got a whatsapp message from a USA number.
Admin:  Oh! USA number?
Arinfe Graphics:    Yea bro, actually It’s was a woman requesting a cartooon image for her husband. We had negotiation and seal the deal.  I was shocked to see the husband picture,
Guess who?
Admin:  who?
Arinfe Graphics:    It was the Wife of “YAWNAIJA”  of  Wazobia FM.
Admin:  Wow!
