John Martz Illustration and Comics


I am an illustrator, cartoonist, and designer living in Toronto, Ontario. I am the author of Destination X (Nobrow Press, 2013) and Machine Gum (La Pastéque, 2013). I am the illustrator of the picture books Dear Flyary by Dianne Young (Kids Can Press, 2012), Who's on First? by Abbott & Costello (Quirk Books, 2013), and Black and Bittern Was Night by Robert Heidbreder (Kids Can Press, 2013).

I was the founding editor of the popular illustration blog, and I make up one quarter of the jam comics collective Team Society League. I won the 2013 Ignatz Award for Oustanding Story for my comic book Gold Star.
