Sh*t My English Boyfriend Says

Warning: contains strong language. In this project, titled "Shit My English Boyfriend Says," I kept a journal of catch-phrases and expressions inspired by or quoted directly from my dry-witted English boyfriend. I then hand lettered the phrases, usually accompanied by some sort of a drawing, and shared them on Instagram. This project is light of heart and heavy on sarcasm, and is simply meant to poke a bit of fun at some of our cultural differences.

The project gained traction on Instagram, and was even published in The Huffington Post!

Role: concept development, illustration, design

More mandatory family fun time.

Was that even English?



Later, I expanded the project to poke fun at myself. Thus, Shit My American Girlfriend Says was born.
