Juha Ekman

Creative Person

Hi, I’m Juha!

I’m a full-time digital anime artist and content creator living in a small country called Finland in Northern Europe. My true artist journey pretty much started with CTRL+Z. When I experienced that and the limitless color choices and the number of tools I could use with art software, I was sold. Drawing digital anime art is the thing that makes me happy among eating cheeseburgers in between veggie meals.

I have two different YouTube channels, one for art and one for investing. I believe artists can be wealthy and don’t have to carry that “starving artist-stigma” anymore. I’m on the journey to becoming financially free by being an artist and an investor. You can follow me through different socials, hope to connect with you.



Okuha.com is a hub for all things digital anime art. Through this site, you can read a lot of art tutorials on various anime art-related topics as well as get in-depth knowledge on how to draw that beautiful and professional anime art. Now, if you are more interested in learning from me, then I suggest you check my art shop and what it can offer to you. When you want to connect, do check my socials above.

Origin Story

Okuha name comes from the unification of my last and first name. The last name Ekman partly means oak in Sweden, and so it was fun to take it as part of the name. Oku comes from the Japanese word ōku, which “surprisingly” also means oak.

Ha comes from the first name Ju(ha). Slightly altering ōku and combining ha, you get the Japanese-sounding name of Okuha.
