Martin Lodewijk was born in Rotterdam. He dropped out of high school in 1957, and started drawing cartoons, notably of spacecraft and pirates. In 1959, his first cartoon was published in the newspaper Het Parool, after which he specialized in drawing for commercial advertising. For the weekly comics magazine Pep, he co-created with Jan Kruis the Agent 327 comic in 1966, a feature he ended up writing and drawing for close to fifty years. He provided scripts for other strips, such as Don Lawrence's Storm. After Pep and Sjors merged into Eppo, Lodewijk became Eppo's chief editor.
In 1999, Lodewijk published the world's smallest comic book; Minimum Bug (26 mm by 37 mm). It belongs to the Agent 327 series.
In 1973, Martin Lodewijk and his brother Tim participated in the knowledge quiz show Twee voor Twaalf. The brothers won, and returned for the special jubilee quiz in 2005, where they reached the finals.
