Welcome to my personal portfolio site!
Hello, my name is Márton Hegedűs.
I am a graphic artist based in Budapest, Hungary.
I do illustrations, comics, cartoons, art works and much more.
Fell free to look around in my site,
and if you like what you see,
get in touch!
Starting from the early 2000s, I have worked as an illustrator for various women’s and men’s magazines including Playboy, Elle, FHM, Nők Lapja and Éva.
In this page you can find a selection of my magazine illustrations.
Graphic novels & comic strips
Fascinated by the interplay between image and text,
I have loved comic books since childhood.
Today I make comic strips for a variety of magazines and web portals as well as for Hungary’s leading human rights organization.
My comic strip series Tex & Mex was featured in the weekly program magazine Exit for two years.
My first graphic novel Slussz Kulcs Klán (Car Key Clan), published in 2012 by Libri Kiadó, was awarded the Graphic Novel of the Year and the AlfaBéta Prize of the Hungarian Comics Association in 2013.
In this page you can find a selection of my comic artworks.
In 2015, I was commissioned by the Móra Kiadó to design and illustrate their informational children’s book series Ablak-zsiráf, the republication in a new, thematic form of the long-standing children’s encyclopedia with the same title.
Besides modernizing the graphic design of the books, I also designed two new comic characters for the series: Ablak (Window) and Zsiráf (Giraffe).
The funny, playful scenes created by their duet guide the young readers through the volumes.
Cartoons and more...
In the last almost 15 years I have designed and directed my own animated films as well as a number of web animations and animated clips.
My films were featured in some of the most prestigious international animation film festivals. Mesterlövész (El Asesino / Sharpshooter) won First Prize at the 2001 OFF Festival of Budapest.
This page contains a selection of my animated works.
Mosaic, Wall paintig, Decoration
In the field of decorative arts, I make mosaics, paintings, interior and exterior decorations and other artworks. My biggest public artwork so far is a 20 m² tile mosaic mural called Hesztia (Hestia), which decorates the wall of a ruin bar at 40 Dob Street in Budapest.
