marília marz

Marília was born in São Paulo, SP; Marz in Eugene, Oregon. Marília learned to draw, and Marz, learned the transforming power of drawing.

Whether through illustration or comics, Marília Marz believes that the will behind each drawn line is capable of changing, even if only a little, ourselves and the world around us.

The projects are many and the time is short, but I'll get them done, one step at a time.


Marília Marz has a bachelor degree from Escola da Cidade in Architecture and works as an illustrator and comic book artist. In 2015, during her graduation, she was granted an scholarship to study one year abroad in the University Of Oregon, where she started to study and develop her first comics.


Her main comic is a story titled “Indivisible” - a narrative about black and east-asian culture in Liberdade neighbourhood, in São Paulo (the site housed many Japanese immigrants back in the early XX century, carrying a Japanese aesthetic even today) that got her a nomination for the 2020 HQ MIX Trophy in the category New Talent - Writer. Also in 2020, Marília developed the comic “Where Are We Going, Dad?”, for the initiative “IMS Invites” (IMS stands for Moreira Salles Institute, a renowned cultural institute in Brazil). In 2021, Indivisible was approved in PNLD (Plano Nacional do Livro Didático - National Textbook Plan) and is now part of the government official textbook list, being eligible for use in public schools throughout Brazil. She is also a cartoonist for Folha de São Paulo, one of Brazil's biggest newspapers.


Her client's list include Sesc, Instituto Moreira Salles, Netflix, Omelete, Empowher NY, Vitrine Filmes, Instituto Pólis, Folha de São Paulo, Festival Sinédoque e Itaú Cultural.
