sonder - n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own…
More than any other, this particular definition seems to have struck a chord with people—even if they don’t know I made up the word. I’ve even watched it start to dip its toe into the lexicon as a real word, at least in some circles.
Anyway, when I’m not inventing dictionary definitions I’m a freelance video maker and graphic designer, so I decided to expand the definition into a short video. Written, directed, edited and narrated by me. Enjoy.

I forgot that public asks aren’t rebloggable and I got a couple of requests, so here’s a permalink!
Relevant to my life.
it’s been so long since i’ve actually drawn anything—to the point where i freeze up before my pencil touches the page
which is really unfortunate as i’ve planned one of my final projects to include ~30 illustrations
i feel like i haven’t been posting my own stuff in a while so here’s something
this was a sketch for a t-shirt design (from a month and a half ago? wow) that had already gone through a few iterations/changes and just ended up not working out for various reasons. haven’t had the heart to clean up this sketch though.
i still like what came out and i did end up pushing myself more, so at least i can chalk it up as learning experience. maybe someday i’ll return to it and make it a polished portfolio piece or something.
The MET has got some wonderful, fully illustrated textbooks that are available online for free! (X)

I found this relephant to our interests.
I’m actually really nervous about posting these pages since the first page stood alone so well and was really well-received, but I finished, so here they are. My favourite pages ended up being the first and fifth, entirely because the colours were fun (and looking at my own stilted dialogue kind of kills me inside).
I like to think that if they had enough time, these bros could have made amends. Slowly, maybe, but an apology that’s more genuine than ‘I’m sorry for what I had to do to you’ is a start.
I just have so many feelings about Tarrlok and my questionable ability to write about them augh
