André Martel is a multidisciplinary artist whose disciplines are graphic design and playful illustration. André is a master of lines who believes in the strength of a good sketch and that a simple line drawn by mistake can reveal a masterpiece in itself! This pop artist draws his inspiration from his childhood memories, the 80s, popular culture and comics to create a collection of thematic doodles where fairies, knights and monsters come to life.
