The Lies We Tell Ourselves…

Have you seen this? Fantastic project from New York based Graphic Designer and Illustrator, Lauren Hom – check out her work, I have severe portfolio envy.

I love these prints, and how they blatantly and beautifully showcase the fibs we tell ourselves, and what better way to face up to our little white lies than to have them hand lettered, screenprinted and on display for all to see? It’s almost like being honest with ourselves…

My favourite is the first one, I say that ALL the time.

Gatsby

Having just finished the book, I absolutely can’t wait for this. One of those books that I didn’t ‘get’ until a good few hours after I’d finished it. There have been some pretty awesome covers over the years too.
