Adam Hills: Inflatable [x]
cry·ing /ˈkrī-iNG/ - the act is defined as a complex secretomotor phenomenon characterized by the shedding of tears from the lacrimal apparatus, without any irritation of the ocular structures.In an age where nudity is less vulnerable than genuine emotions, I wanted to explore an aspect of peoples lives that are hidden.
These are the faces of the intentionally vulnerable. They’re showing you a part of themselves that is usually saved for their loved ones or even sometimes, just themselves.
You don’t know why they are crying, but you know that this is a rare look into a stranger’s most personal moments.

Some excellent reference for how people cry.
oh shit I’m slogging through this terrible lecture and I’ve realised we have to formulate our own essay topics and it’s so ambiguous that I could, for example, write a paper on the historic and cultural significance of Jeeves and Wooster
you’ll thank yourself for no exam i think
To be fair it is a take-home exam
Can’t decide whether to stay in the 20th century British history unit I’m enrolled in
or change to the French history unit
Finally wrote out my assignment deadlines and work hours
I have, on average, one day off a week for the entire semester and that’s the only day I can spend reading the three novels + extra readings I’m required to read every week
I am going to lose my mind over the next four months, I guarantee it
i am a rock, digital
when you’re far, you have to live in your own world.
i was talking to sophia a few days ago about her comics and process. listening to her inspired me to rethink some sketches i hadn’t solved. essentially, we talked about how compositions can drive a comic— which i found really refreshing. it feels nice to break out of the rectangle.
i really, truly wish i drew more comics.
I consider you to be e x c e p t i o n a l . So, I make an exceptional effort to accommodate you.
I’m not going to c h a n g e .
I’m about to go get yum cha with my friends
one last hurrah before uni starts and we don’t see each other for four months
I’m done with my current sketchbook and I filled quite a few pages with faces. Decided to collect some of my favourite spreads here, in no particular order. I’ve posted most of them already - first one is new, though. Seeing all of them together makes it easier to spot my shortcomings and stuff I need to work on, so that’s good!
(If I’m not mistaken, there’s 194 faces in this post. I don’t know why I counted.)
For your easy reference: the points of sail.
You never named me.
Victor, you never gave me what little humanity
every person is owed.
I understand there are abominations
and monstrosities that should be forgotten and
erased from history but
even hurricanes have names.
