My Name is Solomon W. Jagwe. The Creator and Director of the Adventures of Nkoza and Nankya (www.nkozaandnankya.com), and a Freelance 3D Artist, Modeler, Animator, Painter and Illustrator.

I grew up on the outskirts of the capital city – Kampala, on the slopes of a hill called Mutundwe. My early childhood was in the countryside – Masaka, far from the rumbles of the city traffic.

While in Uganda, I worked for 3 companies. Infosat – as a website developer and artist, Photo Magic – as a photo processor and photographer and C&MS – as an artist and web development instructor. After graduating from secondary school (Makerere College School) – A-Level, I came to the US in 1996 to complete my degree in Art via a Scholarship.

I graduated in the Spring of 1999. I attended Ohio Valley University, Montgomery College, and George Mason University. I majored in Art and Visual Technology with an Emphasis on 3D Environment Design and modeling, Character Modeling and Animation, Vehicle Modeling, and Simulation.

After my graduation I worked as a Storyboard Artist, an FMV Animator, 3D Artist, Environment and Level Designer, Modeling, Texturing, and Matte Painter for several Defense contractors and Gaming Studios: Rival Interactive, Cornerstone, SAIC and Camber.

From 2016 to 2018, I worked fulltime as the Art Director of Floreo, www.floreotech.com ~ a VR (Virtual Reality) Gaming Studio based in Washington DC., creating VR gaming content to help kids with Autism develop social skills in a safe environment.

I enjoy my work tremendously and I am forever grateful to God for blessing me with a gift I can share with the rest of the world.

I am currently working as a Freelance Artist in the areas of Concept Design, Architectural Visualization, 3D Modeling and Animation, Motion Capture, Matte Painting, Illustration, and Story-boarding.
