Martyna Wójcik-Śmierska


The illustration for September was done by Martyna Wójcik-Śmierska, an artist based in Warsaw, Poland. She was selected as one of the “The Best Polish Illustrators” for two years in a row. Her illustrations are known for their pastel colors and comical atmospheres, and she provides her art work to media outlets in the UK, France, Denmark, etc. Martyna created this month’s art piece with fall motifs and various patterns of HOPPY bottles float high in the sky. She shared her thoughts on this piece, saying, “I am a great fan of Japan (unfortunately, I have never visited it). For me, the Japanese food culture is a great journey, full of respect to product and tradition, complex intense taste with elements of startle, which is unfortunately missing in European cuisine. My message for the audience is the lightheartedness and happiness with the element of mystery.”
