i’m jealous of marta spendowska



Is it weird that I can almost smell this post? Ahhh… delicate, feminine, washy perfume bottles by Polish born / US based ¬†Marta Spendowska. She has a portfolio full of lovely things¬†{lots of fashion illustration} but it was these pretty little glass bottles that got me! Oh, and I kinda crazy love these watercolor pattern designs too:



Love.

ps. I don’t usually show images with watermarks on them, just because I feel like it takes away from the art… however, Marta told me that some of her pattern designs have been stolen/claimed by other people. I know that happens way too often {which is ridiculously insane to me} so I thought this might be a good chance to just say that out loud. Not cool, art stealers, not cool.

    Oh so lovely! And you’re right about the power of suggestion, like I have walked into a high end fragrance boutique… these would make for great branding!

    Wow! The colors are just bursting. Such a masterful use of watercolor.

    i think that’s what they are… pretty sure these were from an illustration project she did… marta, did i get that right?! : )

    Yes, Danielle. The perfumes were for an European magazine, patterns are licensed :)

    I literally said “oof” out loud when I saw these. In a good way. Love it when loose brushwork comes out looking so tangible! And the COLORS. I want her stuff all over my house.
