Robert Martel is an illustrator based in Nova Scotia.

Working primarily with graphite, ink, and watercolour, Robert especially loves the permanence of ink and that moment of uncertainty that comes with making those first few lines.


Before he begins an illustration, Robert needs a story to go with the image: "Whether I'm painting a scene from my imagination or sketching a stranger in a coffee shop there must always be a story behind the lines."
