Wasonga is an Illustrator and Comic Book Creator from Nairobi. He was drawn into the comics’ sphere by superhero cartoons and media as a child when he began trying his own hand at illustrations and comic books. Wasonga’s illustrations are aesthetically organic, centred on fantasy, mythology and Afro-culture, inspired by both Western and Eastern pop culture to create a unique yet familiar style. When not illustrating, Wasonga can be found browsing bookstore shelves, at the cinema, cycling in forest parks, or otherwise partaking in some local tourism.

Then inking and shading are done with suitable inks and pens. The final piece is then scanned to PC. Cleaning up and Colour then follow which are done in Adobe Photoshop.
