Martha Seller

1) what does it mean to you to illustrate?

Find the shape of a pile of thoughts are often confused; these, in the head, cling and sting, once on paper, the less each one has the space to have their say.

2) how do you work?

Often I start walking, then come the drafts in pencil, and then it is the turn of colours and trim. During the whole process, arise and alternate with a lot of pictures, even different among them, then comes a which I feel to be right, at least for that moment. So I'll stop.

3) what do you love about your job?

I think that the most beautiful thing is the feeling I get when the images are starting to take the “turn right”. In that moment, in images and so I find that I can live in a thousand different places, and in other hundred lives, is how to travel in time.

Work also conducting workshops and workshops, is of illustration of art therapy, and each time it's a kind of magic when we discover that we are able to communicate through images, even if they are small signs; they are often much, much more powerful than a thousand words.
