After studying Editorial Illustration at Ontario College of Art, Martin performed across Canada in such productions as Cats, The Stratford Festival, and Phantom of the Opera while painting portrait commissions in his spare time. Once retired from theatre Martin moved to California to work for Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light and Magic as a digital artist and supervisor working on such films as Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, and Jurassic World.
