Emma Roulette, a full-time creative who works on personal drawings, editorial illustrations, and comics.

Based in Barcelona, Emma Roulette mostly uses a pen before adding colors and textures in Photoshop to her artworks. As a full-time illustrator, she’s working on personal drawings, editorial illustrations, and comics. Her illustrations often feature plants and architectural objects as key visuals. These motifs are often drawn from a distant point of view or with a panoramic perspective. In a recent interview with the people of It’s Nice That, Emma said that she originally pursued a career as an arachnologist (which is the study of spiders and related animals) before she moved to Madrid to teach English. Later on a trip to Barcelona, she met many creative people. Driven by this experience, she felt like she had something to contribute to this creative world and that it is totally possible to become a professional illustrator. The full interview can be found here. For more of Emma Roulette’s creative work, please check out her Tumblr or follow Emma on Instagram to stay up to date with her latest drawings.

The tragedy of Tarajal - illustration by Emma Roulette
The tragedy of Tarajal refers to an event from February 6, 2014, which led to the death of 15 people on the beach of Tarajal, drowned while trying to swim the strait that separates Morocco from the autonomous city of Ceuta to enter in Spain as irregular immigrants. The 15 victims were part of a group of between 200 and 300 people from sub-Saharan Africa who tried to reach the Spanish coast by swimming, when an operation of 56 Civil Guard agents unloaded 145 rubber bullets and five smoke canisters of concealment, in order to thwart the attempt.
