Hello! My name is Oriol Vidal, an illustrator living in Barcelona, Spain. As probably many other artist, my hobby became my profession. I liked drawing since I was a child. And I can luckily work for a living now. I usually work for a children’s market, illustrating picture books, board books, covers for novels, magazines…. I also try to push up another kind of styles with some personal projects, focusing on an adult target. I work 100% digitally, and I spent a lot of time doing image reference research. I think that this is a very important stage when illustrating. Then, I get on the rough stage, creating some options to show to the client and once they are approved, I go then to the final art. Always creating it as editable as possible, to save time if any changes is needed.
