About Monika Kozub

The "Postcards from Mars" project started when I went to Lisbon in 2016 as a PhD student in the arts. Surrounded by people from many countries, I learned new languages and new words that were unique, untranslatable and yet so apt and truthful in the way they describe life. I decided to illustrate them with watercolors in a small postcard size - easy to take everywhere you go, even to Mars.

If you would like me to design a custom illustration for you,
