Maria Surducan is a Cluj-Napoca based artist, who does illustrations with one hand, graphic design with the other, comics with the third and in the last hand she's holding a coffee cup. She feels this way she can draw herself the perfect life. Published works include picture-books, graphic novels and comics anthologies.

She enjoys the moment of hesitation before pen touches paper, the moment when the hunter glimpses the shadow of an idea running on the surface of the mind. 


2016 // Rusalka
Two banished princes search their fortune in the mountains, among the gold diggers. But the mountains are also the domain of strange and mysterious creatures, whose beauty makes mere mortals go mad. How will the two fare and what is the price they'll have to pay to get their hearts' desire?
The story, written by Maria Surducan, drawn and colored by Anna Benczédi, is the first, chronologically, in the Golden Apples series. The webcomic updates every Monday and the printed version can be found in HAC! BD Magazine.

2015 // Foire de Nuit
In the middle of the forest, far from the city, the mysterious Midnight Fair promises unforgettable experiences. Inspired by the Eastern-European bestiary, the caged monsters set a trap, and the final pray will be the reader. 
2015 // Karel Líman 
In a world permanently connected to the Internet, tourists visit Romania’s most famous castles, take pictures and proudly share their finds on Facebook. But few of them know they are admiring the works of Czech architect Karel Líman, in the service of the Romanian Royal House at the beginning of the 20th century. The graphic novel explores the relation between the restless hunters of the extraordinary and those who silently create it.

2014 // Love of books, Cărturești
The month when Saint Valentin and our own Dragobete fight for supremacy in the art of love is the perfect time to thank the writers. For the verses that have soothed broken hearts, for the stories that made us sob, for the novels that inspired declarations of love or lovers quarrels. Knowingly or not, our love lives have as background the great stories webbed by William Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Lev Tolstoi, Jane Austen, Gabriel García Márquez, Toni Morrison, Mihai Eminescu or Mircea Cărtărescu. So, in the month of February, here at Carturesti we celebrate not only the love, but also those who depicted it in poems, novels, tragedies or essays.
2014 // The Month of Childhood
Illustration that would evoke the games of childhood, some of them now forgotten, in a form that references, through style and colors, the retro images of the '80. A protective book cover with the illustration was given as a gift for each online purchase, and a seamless pattern was used to decorate the children's space at Cărtureşti Nord.
