John Martz Illustrates ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ and Pixelates the Star Trek Universe [Art]


John Martz
takes familiar pieces of pop culture and reinterprets them visually, not through any one particular style, but through a host of different styles. He puts his own comic spin on the first appearances of Batman and Superman, and draws a Wonder Woman who looks like she’d be more at home in the New Yorker than a superhero comic. When envisioning illustrations for Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, he opts for a retro, design-heavy feel, and when rendering characters from the Star Trek universe, he goes for the pixel treatment.
Martz has drawn comics for the Globe and Mail and illustrated two children’s books: Dear Flyary by Dianne Young and a picture book of Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s on First?” routine. He also does the webcomic Machine Gun, a series of playful visualizations starring his own retro robot character. You can keep track of his latest and greatest stuff on Tumblr.
