Artist: Martina Bolognini (Maui)


"Under the Sea" is an illustration that represents the relationship between two sea creatures. Original plate of a series of illustrations included in my artbook “Sexy and Gorgeous Ink”. The illustration was made in graphite and then inked with black Indian ink on smooth Bristol paper (dimensions 42 x 29.7). The action takes place in the centre of the work, where we can see the two characters during a sexual act. These two sea creatures are inspired by real-life fish. To create them, I studied and then I took inspiration from anatomical parts of fish and crustaceans, and I composed them to obtain two anthropomorphic characters that could be convincing and captivating in relation to the place where they are. The seabed, instead, has both real elements and elements invented by me to create a frame around the two protagonists.


Martina Bolognini, a.k.a. Maui, was born in Bologna in 1992. She showed her passion for drawing from an early age and then she attended the Francesco Arcangeli art school in Bologna, where she got her diploma in the figurative course. She graduated in Comics and Illustration from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna. Later she specialised in Languages of Comics. She began to approach comics from a very early age, making it her main and personal form of communication and expression, taking inspiration from the masters of this field like Milo Manara, Ugo Pratt, Frank Cho and Magnus.
