Conrad Roset spent his childhood in Terrassa, drawing with anything he could get his hands on, surrounding himself with notebooks, crayons and art. His passion for drawing took him to Barcelona, where he finished his art studies. Ever since his illustrations spread over the internet, he has worked for several well-established brands; he has delivered projects for Zara, Coca Cola and Disney, to name but a few. Nowadays Conrad works as a freelance artist for different brands and publishing companies and teaches illustration at BAU design school in Barcelona. You can find Conrad on Instagram, Facebook and on Twitter.

What is the most unusual request you’ve had?

I don’t remember exactly one very unusual commissioned work, usually people want me to draw the body of a woman.

What advice would you give to someone who was trying to break into the business?

My advice would be to draw a lot, more than eight hours a day and to be very present on the social media. It’s very important nowadays to show the world what you do.

What’s next?

I have a huge personal project which I will be working with during the next year: an illustrated indie videogame.

How would you describe your work in 80 characters?

I think that concepts like sensuality related to the female body define my work. And there is always a will to experiment with different mediums and bases, although it is true that I usually work with watercolors and Indian ink, because I like the irregularities of the line that the Indian ink provides; also the color effects caused by watercolours are very beautiful.
