Hi! My name is Carlos Arrojo, I´m a freelance illustrator based in A Coruña, Spain. I work for a variety of international clients mainly in the fields of editorial and advertising. I consider myself a versatile illustrator and also able to offer a personal approach through my work. The use of striking linework and attention to simplified detail are the main characteristics that define my style. I´m a responsible person and I always try to do my best in every new project.
