“For 100 Days, I Illustrated People In Exchange For Their Secrets”

Terence Eduarte is an Illustrator in the Philippines and a few days ago, I saw an article about him all over my news feed. He did this project where he illustrated different people for 100 days in exchange for their secrets. I read all 100 of them and I was blown away.

Here are some examples:

1. “I burned the suicide note I wrote a month ago. Today is a good day.”

2. “I Try My Hardest To Make People Happy Because I Know What It’s Like To Feel Absolutely Worthless. I Don’t Want Anyone Else To Feel Like That”
