This is the 4th illustration for TWFMW featuring artist Adebajo Bolaji.
This one is one of my favorite stories, where the artist talks about his need to create and how it dictated his life. I can relate myself and my story to his very much.
“The world from my window” has started as a global anthology of stories from the time of isolation during the COVID- 19. It was founded by two friends Dan Boyden and Dan Shipton, in April 2020, gathering the stories from the lockdown sharing the experiences it has gained thousands of followers with the Instagram account. I had the pleasure to illustrate and create branding for them. Please read more about the first phase in my blog post.
This September, “The world from My Window” has started the Podcast. And again, I had the pleasure to portrait the exquisite guests. The main idea behind the project is that storytelling has a healing power that helps to process what is happening to us and can support our emotional wellbeing. The project champions mental health awareness and is a tender and welcoming place for all kinds of stories.
“The World From My Window is an unscripted show where we lead our guests through a conversation inspired by the process a writer takes when planning their work, with the aim of uncovering the true-life stories of our guests.We want to find out what the world looks like from their window, hear about the characters that have inspired them, the moments that have shaped the chapters of their life, what they have learned along the way, and even what the title of their life story might be.”
Until now the Podcast has invited such incredible personalities as Adebajo Bolaji, Thomas Knights, Julie Lindahl, Dom’n’ink, Stephen Jordan, and it will continue.
