illustration, writings and other nonsense

about El Rosen

birth: 1992 in Aachen, Germany
lives in: Berlin, Germany
graduation: B.A. of Arts Visual Communication faculty of illustration, Hochschule Trier

My drawing journey started quite late, in 2014 by the age of 21. What most people would consider as a disadvantage turned out to be very beneficial. I knew I had to draw the brain out of my head, which is exactly what I did and still do since 2014. Eventually I graduated 2018 in Illustration at Hochschule Trier in Germany. So here I am,  kind of the illustrator wannabe version of what Bukowski is for novel or what Lynch is for film without any brain left but a bunch of projects and hunger for more.
My focus is on book illustration, editorial illustration as well as scientific illustration, but I’m always down for new things. Feel free to write me.
Besides that,  I’m a skateboarder and fulltime music nerd.
