Art Imitating Life


It’s funny because it’s true: “I’ll be ready in 5 minutes.”  “My house is usually cleaner than this.”  “I’m going to the gym during my lunch break.”

Those little fibs we tell ourselves (and others) are celebrated by graphic designer Lauren Hom. She illustrates all those phrases that make their way into our daily conversation and elevates them to an art form on her website. Her work is also available to purchase as prints. After all, if you’re going to tell yourself, “Only a quick nap,” you might as well really own it.
