Character designer & Comic artist
Buenos Aires, Argentina

Summary

Hi there! I’m Gretel, an illustrator and character designer based in Argentina, where I studied a Visual Arts Degree at the National University of Arts. Back in 2015, I started my career in the animation industry as a Visual development artist and Character designer for 2D and 3D animated shorts, tv series and feature films. I continued working on a variety of projects including editorial work, book covers and concept art for videogames. Nowadays I’m pursuing my long-term dream of drawing comics.
I recently illustrated the graphic novel 'Primer' for DC Comics, and I worked on projects for clients including Marvel, IDW Publishing, Simon & Schuster, Netflix, the Upper Deck Company, Mundoloco CGI Animation Studios, AZ Editora, Sigmar and Mcfly Studio, among others. I also collaborated with brands and companies such as Warner Bros, Wacom, Paperlike, Stickerapp, XP-Pen, Spectrum Noir and Huion.

My art is mostly inspired by poetry, music, nature and marine life. I love both traditional and digital mediums and I enjoy creating with whatever a can get my hands on! I also love superheroes, fantasy books, the sea & traveling as much as I can.

For work inquiries or questions, please reach out via e-mail gretlusky@hotmail.com
Thank you!
