We’re elated to announce the third annual Zinggia Ohio Art Scholarship Winner Osi Okoro!
We had a lot of submissions from many qualified young artists for the third annual Zinggia Ohio Art Scholarship. This year’s submissions included amazing illustrations, photography, handmade dresses, decorated cakes, and short films. It was difficult to narrow down applicants this year, but we kept going back to Osi’s work. Of course we were first drawn in by her super-duper artsy envelope. Cut paper, stickers, a collage with hand drawn elements. Pretty sweet Osi!
She’s skilled with traditional mediums as well as digital art. For real, just take a look at the samples she submitted for our art scholarship!!! And while your eyes are glazing over by how awesome her art is, check out her tumblr page for even more eye-popping art.
Osi will attend Bowling Green State University and plans to major in Digital Art or Animation. Her dream jobs would be to animate cartoons, draw storyboards for films, and make album art for indie bands. We know Osi will have a successful career in art because, ya know, this girl obviously ROCKS already!
We’ll follow up with Osi next year to see how she’s doing in her first year of school. Check back on our website for her Q&A next year.
Osi will be getting this monsterific, hand drawn check in the mail.

Elaine at art.college.life. interviewed us about the Zinggia Art Scholarship. Her blog helps students navigate their art college search. She has information on art schools, college life, artist interviews, portfolio advice, and more! And if you need help with your art college search, Elaine can help with consultations. Consultations are helpful for parents who worry if a career in art is financially viable. After all, we’ve all heard the “starving artist” rumors! Don’t worry parents (and kids), most working artists agree those rumors are just myths.
