100 Secrets People Shared With This Artist In Return For Illustrating Them
“Every person has an interesting story to tell and I wanted to channel that into this project,” says Terence Eduarte, a Filipino illustrator behind the compelling series ‘100 Days Of Secrets.’
To make this project Terence “gathered a lot of silly secrets from friends and unexpected confessions from strangers around the world,” which he then illustrated in his signature style. From hiding a failed driving test to burned suicide notes, the interviewees of this series aren’t holding back.
