Georges Bwelle final illustration

"For a country like mine, people like to dream, to dance, to enjoy their life. But with poverty they cannot enjoy their life. 
To go to the village is a pleasure. If I can help 2 or 3 people that would be great."


My ideas weren't exciting me and I felt they were headed nowhere until I gave into the urge to draw an Afro on this great guy. That's when a funkier version of Georges formed and demanded to be drawn.
Cameroon has jungles and it had popped up several times in my research, inevitably Jungle Boogie came to mind and after looking at the lyrics I decided a more relevant substitute for "get down, get down" was "get well, get well".
