First for Women magazine features my hair and beauty illustrations

I graduated from the Art Institute in Chicago where I studied fashion and beauty illustration. My work has been featured in an array of magazines – VOGUE, In Style, Glamour, and more. However, with the birth of the internet the market for illustrations took a dive – magazines went under, publishing went online, and a lot of illustration work just vanished. Art directors could now buy “stock art “ for a fraction of what we were getting paid. So I had to adapt, and eventually I came up with another outlet for my skills: The Marrero Collection. But in the …

Imagen Magazine features Carlos Marrero – Marrero Collection

Imagen-Carlos Marrero-Blog

I was only 20 years old when the first issue of Imagen hit puerto rican newstands. Since the very beginning Imagen has been the No.1 women’s lifestyle magazine in the island and has won rave reviews for its local and international monthly coverage of fashion, beauty, travel, culture, social events, personalities, home decor, and other aspects, that keep readers informed on modern living! As an illustrator my work has been featured in many national magazines but I never thought, in a million years, that I would appear on Imagen’s glossy pages, as a puerto rican fashion designer. The publication is the leading women’s magazine on …

Hair salon posters by The Marrero Collection Available now


One of my dear friends, Maria Machin has worked as a salesperson of supplies to hair salons around the country for many years.

I agreed with the stipulation that these prints would not be exclusive but also available to my customers through The Marrero Collection website and other distribution channels. She wanted to offer something whimsical yet stylish to her salons, so I came up with the following designs for Hair salon posters: I hope …
