Martin’s work includes cartoon illustrations geared toward children and all sorts of narrative character-based work executed with a professional cartoonist’s precision. On his Tumblr and blog you’ll find additional artwork of his (and of other artists who inspire him), sketches, animated GIFs, and photos of his drawing table and various works-in-progress.

  • Mister Twister

    HE DRAWS WITH A BRUSH AND IT IS PERFECT ON TAKE ONE??

    I am now jealous. I can only draw with pencils, with much erasing.

    He’s the man. I admire his work for so many reasons.

    I’ve been a fan of his for ages, his artwork has inspired me even longer than I knew his name. I only wish his comics were available in English to read, or… just, at all, so I could look at them.

    That Inking demo was awesome to watch!
