Biography

My name is Marta Selusi, and I am a watercolourist specialised in children book illustration and fantasy graphic novels. I studied Fine Arts at the Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain) and have a masterʼs degree in Publishing.

I started to work on original comics when I was a child, and have recently begun to humbly self-publish my own works as zines. My comics work has won the Casal Jove local comic contest (in el Grau de Castelló) in 2019, 2016 and 2009, all of which featured my take on sci-fi stories.

Currently, I'm actively working on long-form comics projects and seeking representation for them.
