Monica Martino is a two-time Emmy nominated TV producer whose love of illustration came about following a near-death accident while filming in the Amazon. She started painting as an escape during the long and painful recovery from multiple surgeries, and she credits art and an acerbic sense of humor for getting her through it.

Martino chronicles the absurdity and weirdness of everyday life, while honoring all its messy, awesome and perplexing facets.  Working in watercolor, gouache, and marker, her work often has a fantastical element to it and a theme that could best be described as “visual sarcasm.”  She founded Lemon Zesty in 2017 and has been making fresh art with a sour twist ever since.
