Scapes Artist Marc Martin

We first fell in love with Marc Martin when we saw his illustrations for "A Forest", in, (I think) 2008. They were displayed in a Melbourne gallery, having won some serious design awards and we were immediately hooked. That book has since been re-published by Penguin, and Marc has continued to create more books and illustrations that hold our heart. He has such a great design ability with striking compositions that are rendered in beautiful watercolour splashes of colour. The dynamic between detail and space, geometric and organic, is breathtaking. 

It's also interesting to watch his beautifully tactile work translated to the digital realm via the iPad puzzle "Night and Day"
