Hello! I'm Carla Martell, an illustrator and designer from Auckland, New Zealand. I specialise in whimsical illustration featuring children, animals and curious characters, hand lettering and surface pattern design. I’m also a licensed artist who creates work for products such as greeting cards, homeware and kids’ clothing.
Most of my designs are drawn by hand then digitally combined with handmade textures and typography. I love printmaking, writing words that go with pictures and turning my hand to making images move. To enquire about commissions, licensing or creative collaborations (something I'm very fond of) please get in touch - I'd love to hear from you.
