Livia Rusz (also, Lívia Rusz) is a Romanian and Hungarian graphic artist, best known for her work in illustration, comic strip and comic book genres.

Livia Rusz became the first Romanian illustrator of J.R.R. Tolkien's work, when she contributed drawings for the first Romanian-language edition of The Hobbit (1975, marketed by Editura Ion Creangă). While working on this project, she was reportedly unable to compare her renditions of Hobbits, Elves or Orcs with any previous portrayals by other artists, owing to the scarcity of foreign literature sources in Romania — her work therefore owed much to imagination[1].
