Summary

Gretel Lusky is an illustrator and character designer based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After studying a Visual Arts Degree at the National University of Arts, she started her career in the animation industry both as Character Designer and Vis Dev artist for 2D and 3D animated shorts, tv series and feature films. For the past couple of years, she decided to pursue her true passion: drawing comics.

She illustrated her very first graphic novel 'Primer' for DC Comics and has also worked on projects for clients including Marvel, IDW Publishing, Simon & Schuster, Netflix, Titan Comics, 3dtotal Publishing, the Upper Deck Company, Mundoloco CGI Animation Studios and Mcfly Studio, among others. She has also collaborated with brands and companies such as Warner Bros, Paramount Pictures, Wacom, Stickerapp, XP-Pen, Spectrum Noir and Huion.

Her art is mostly inspired by nature and maritime imagery. She enjoys creating whimsical illustrations with strong characters and bright colors. When she's not drawing, she's probably reading a book, re-watching her favorite cartoons or traveling as much as her schedule allows!
