People and their invented histories.





"First I choose a pic from web (Facehunter or Sartorialist), then I draw and then I read whatever comes to my mind about that person drawn on my sketchbook. It's fun!" - Fernanda Guedes






One of our favorite past times, or ways to pass time, in an airport, restaurant, hotel pools etc, is  to create stories behind strangers that we see. I agree, it's great fun. You should try it out sometime. Also, I love this gal's art.

These are fabulous...but I can find no link to the artist - are there more to admire somewhere on the web?

Lynn - yes, the artist is, Fernanda Guedes. I have no idea why that didn't make it next to her quote. I added the link though, and you can check out all of her other, hilarious and beautiful pieces.

Anon Police - agree, it is 'kinda rude' not to credit the artist.

Megan,
This is the coolest thing ever. At first, I thought you drew these and wrote these but then I realized it was someone else. I'm dying to read the stories. I would love to do this in an airport - I'm always traveling and looking around and wondering what peoples stories are. How fun this girl creates a story. I love that. I want to read more! It would make a fun coffee table book.

These are amazing! How fun, and somehow seems less judgmental than just thinking those things...

this is so rad! i totally make up stories about people... from the neighbors to people in the airport... just have to be careful not to slip up if you end up actually getting to know one of these people not to confuse your made-up stories with the truth!

it's all about me, really.
