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 and after many different work experiences I eventually found my way and in 2016 I decided to make my biggest dream come true.
Now I work as illustrator, character designer and visual&graphic designer for editorial projects, books, adv, brand & business or events.. 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 with my illustrations.
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 or every kind of adventures!
My favorite things to draw are: funny monsters, redhead girls and fish.
TEACHING AND EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES
Through the years I’ve developed a passion and experience also in the field of teaching: planning, developing and managing educational / recreational / creative workshops for children, courses and lessons for students, technical and artistic workshops for adults. In recent times I’ve also carried out consulting and training activities in the educational field for agencies, events and companies.
