Marta Chudolinska

What inspires graphic artists? How do those great ideas make it from thought to page, and what tools does the artist use to get them there? Open Book: Toronto asked printmaker and painter Marta Chudolinska to illustrate her creative process for us, and she provided us with the fabulous images "Creative Flow" and "The Best Things." Click on the illustrations for a better look. (The images can be further enlarged by clicking on the icon with four arrows that will appear.)

If you want to meet Marta in person and check out more of her work, stop by the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend.

Marta Chudolinska's graphic novel, Back + Forth, was published by The Porcupine's Quill. You can enter to win a copy of Back + Forth and three other remarkable graphic novels from The Porcupine's Quill and Open Book. Click here for details.


Marta Chudolinska is a printmaker, bookbinder and painter fascinated by narrative imagery. Born in Pruszkow, Poland in 1984, Marta immigrated to Canada with her family in 1991. The experience of immigration has inspired her to explore and to cherish the diverse regions that Canada has to offer, from coast to coast. A recent graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, she currently lives and works in Toronto.
