About Martina Cecilia
I'm a freelance illustrator, comic colorist and graphic designer based in Rome.
I like experimenting with all sort of media, ‘cause I get easily bored, so my gallery is filled with digital, vector, flash animations, pixel art as well as traditional, acrylics, inks, pencils… My absolute Love goes to watercolour. I couldn’t live without my watercolours! I’ve got them on my desk 24/7 as long as a jar with dirty water. I watercolour even when I’m on the phone, when I’m watching tv, when I’m on in front of my mac (which suffers for it, it’s quite stained…).
I love italian comics, american comics and argentinian comics. I couldn’t live without Eduardo Risso, Hugo Pratt, Gianni Deluca, Carlos Gomez, James Jean, Crepax, John J Muth, Stuart Immonen, Dino Battaglia… and the list is long. I don’t crave for manga style, because I have an hated past with it and I still suffer the consequences. It’s like a curse: once in manga always in manga. But I still love Hiroaki Samura like the first time I read Blade of the Immortal.
There’s too much coffeine in my bloodstream and a lack of real spice in my life.
