The blue-hued cartoon characters were proposed by Italian student Marta Mascellani for a contest that Brussels Airlines organized. Says Mascellani, “Drawing is my big passion so when I heard of the contest I thought it was a great challenge I wanted to take. I like the Smurfs cartoon and the films. I thought it was also the best occasion to draw them because it’s the [Smurfs’] 60th anniversary in 2018.”
