Girl and cat illustration | Carla Martell


Carla Martell PhotoHello! I'm Carla Martell, an illustrator and designer based in Auckland, New Zealand. Ever since I can remember I've been drawing little animals and people, often with hats on. All that doodling practice led me along a curly path to my current destination, illustrating children's books and creating cute characters that make people smile.

Most of my designs are drawn by hand then digitally combined with handmade textures and typography. I'm a big fan of printmaking, writing words that go with pictures and turning my hand to making images move. I've been selling my designs on and offline for eight years, all over the world from my homeland of New Zealand to Norway and everywhere in between.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions, suggestions or design requests - I'd love to hear from you.
