Illustrator Derek Abella might call himself “a silly little guy who draws”, but his creative work has garnered national and cultural significance. 

With soft lines, beautiful gradients and blended shapes, Derek’s work makes otherwise hard-to-depict subjects approachable AND beautiful. 

We discuss his creative journey as an artist and peel back the curtain on his process—with a lot of valuable takeaways for presenters, editorialists & creatives alike. 

His work has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal & Google.
