About me

Hi! My name is Elena Della Rocca and I’m an italian freelance illustrator based in Turin. I was born in La Spezia, I studied in Florence, where I graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts and at the International School of Comics.
Today i work as illustrator and character designer especially for books, media and editorial projects, toys&games and sometimes for adv, web and brands. Especially I like working for childhood, for female&feminists projects and in the social sphere because I am always eager to help spreading positive messages, culture and education trough my illustrations. My word is happy and colorful but I have also a little dark soul: halloween season is my obsession and I love drawing monster and little spooky things (but always funny).

I use both digital and traditional media and I take every opportunity to improve my skills and experiment new techniques and processes. I’m a very curious, dynamic and enthusiastic person with a great passion for traveling, reading, sports and every kind of adventures!

TEACHING
Through the years I’ve developed a passion and experience also in  planning, developing and managing educational and creative workshops for children, courses and lessons for students, technical and artistic workshops for adults.

 ART DIRECTION – EDITING – COPYWRITING
I write occasionally for blogs, websites or zines about illustration and freelance life.
I’m founder, art director and editor of Collettivo Lenti Viola
I’ve worked as visual designer and copywriter for advertising and events

CONSULTING
I’ve also carried out consulting and training activities in the educational field for agencies, events and companies.
