Summary

Gretel Lusky is an illustrator and comic book artist based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Growing up with 90’s cartoons made her fall in love with drawing and creating stories, fascinated by the idea of bringing all her imaginary worlds to life. She studied Visual Arts and began her career in the animation industry back in 2015 both as Character designer and Visual development artist for 2D and 3D animated shorts, tv series and feature films. Four years later, she decided to make a big switch and pursue her true passion: drawing comics.

She illustrated her very first graphic novel Primer for DC Comics and worked on DC’s Flash Facts and IDW’s Marvel Action: Chillers. Currently, she enjoys doing illustrations and cover art for a variety of projects and clients around the world.
