Carlos Basabe Illustration
Illustrator in Washington, DC

Carlos Basabe


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.
