E09 :: Ejiwa Ebenebe & Building a Successful Illustration Career

Ejiwa Ebenebe, also known as Edge, is an illustrator of fantasy, opulence and whimsy, whose gorgeous work earned her a cover on the famous ImagineFX magazine. We’ve been friends for years, and I’m deeply inspired by her - especially after knowing her story and the struggles she had to face to get to where she’s at today.

Join us today as we talk about:

  • Building a successful freelance illustrator career from scratch,
  • Powering through depression,
  • How Final Fantasy led Edge into art making,
  • …and the story behind Edge’s choice of focusing on painting Black people.

What's your Final Fantasy?

Edge told us how the movie “Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within” was a catalyst to her art career. What about you - what movie, game or event stirred your passion for art?
