I'm Carlos Basabe, an editorial and portrait illustrator in Rockville, Maryland. I’ve created illustrations for stories and brands including Cigar City Brewing, TCU Basketball, Bleacher/Report, Delta, United Way and the Southern Law Poverty Center.
I was born and raised in Cuba, and have lived in Florida and Washington, DC before settling in Maryland. My multicultural background has imbued me with a unique point of view that I carry with into every project. Professionally, I spent almost a decade in sales and training, working for companies such as T-Mobile, Samsung and Microsoft before I decided to pursue my passion for visual storytelling full-time.
