Hello there,

It’s another edition of Creative Spotlight on the blog and incase you are new? Creative Spotlight is a segment where i get to interview young creatives from any and every industry. It’s where i get to appreciate talent, learned or not.

Before i continue though, if you noticed my “Get to Know Me” post is no longer on the blog. This is because my blog was hacked and at the end of the long battle i could only get it to a previous state when i hadn’t made the post, real tears* After mourning my loss, i have gained energy and back to blogging so lets get to it shall we?

Today’s Creative Spotlight is a female whoop! I actually just realized it’s been all males since and she is a digital illustrator! I found her via Twitter some weeks back and i’m so grateful to my fam (heyy Daniel) that brought her to my notice. Without much ado, meet Adanna.

  1. Introduction

Hey Everyone, my name is Adanna Onuekwusi and my art name and Deviant ID is Adxnna. I’m a Civil Engineering student with a penchant for art.

2. How did you come to be an artist + what motivates your work?

I’ve always liked to draw for as long as i can remember so for me there really isn’t a start date per say. My motivation comes from any and everything. I can see a nice hat and decide to draw said nice hat. 😀

3. Natural or Learnt?

It’s a little of both. A lot of techniques i use today i picked up from Instagram and DeviantArt.

4. How do you make your drawings?

I use a Desktop application called Autodesk Sketchbook. As of right now, I’m primarily a Digital Illustrator so most of my work is done using this program.


5. Where do you get Inspiration from?

Anything. I could try to think of something profound to say right now haha but the honest answer really is anything.


6. How are you able to balance being a Student and a Creative?

During the academic year, school always comes first and I just draw when I can find the time. As a result, I usually don’t take on as many commissions as I would like.

7. Your Favorite work so far?

It should be between these two (the two pictures below)
