I introduce to you Coke Spotlights. Each spotlight will feature a creative in my city of Baltimore.
This Monday is maverick! Lol. I recently caught up with my friend and artist:Timothy Hutchen for a Q&A. He actually just illustrated a piece for me of my oldest daughter, Ari.
Artist : TJ Hutchen
Q: How did you begin creating and drawing?
A: I began drawing/being creative when I was very young. I have artistic genes on both sides of my family (more on my mom's side). I would go over my cousins's houses and they would have their drawings on their walls. We would sit, draw and color together.
Q: What motivates you to be creative?
A: What motivates me to be creative is life altogether actually. A lot of my inspiration and motivation comes from things I been thru, seen, felt, heard in life. I'm also motivated by other artist, i believe your creativity is based on how you see the world. So when other artist create they're showing the world how they see the world and I love to see how other see things because the world isn't always how I see it. Everybody has their own little picture of the world and everybody's picture makes the world big picture.
Q: Is there a person who has inspired you to be the person you are today?
A: My mom, she's my biggest fan and inspiration. She always told me I can do whatever and she'll have my back all the way. 26 years on Earth and she has held true to it every single day.

Q: Overall what is your dream to accomplish on earth?
A: My dream on Earth is to have my artwork shared around the world, if that means I'm in art museums, social media or however. I just want the world to see how I look at things and it hopefully inspires someone else to have the same goal even if they don't do art. Just that whatever they do, just let the world see you shine.
Q: How can people contact you (twitter IG fb handles email)
A: People can contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. My twitter is @tjsokewl, IG: @tjsokewl_. I'll be making a Facebook art page soon
