Passed away in 1994 and hasn’t stopped since. Ekundayo is a Nigerian name that means sorrow becomes joy a title that is befitting of his work as well. He left Hawaii to study illustration at Art Center College of art and design in Los Angeles, Ca where he currently lives and works in freelance illustration as well as participating in galleries throughout the L.A. area."
