Reda Tomingas


The illustration for September was done by Reda Tomingas, an artist based in Vilnius, Lithuania. She has won several awards such as “World Animation Award” in Leeds International Film Festival (LIFE) and “Best Animated Film Award of the Year” in Lithuanian Film Academy. Her artworks are highly evaluated, and she’s been creating many children’s picture books and animation films. Reda created this month’s art piece with a polar bear holding a Hoppy bottle carefully and expresses how a small sound can be heard in the quiet night. She shared his thoughts, saying, “It was definitely fun to be able to draw the way I like and to have an animal as a character in the artwork. I also found out some things about the Japanese culture I had no idea about.”
