These are illustrations I’ve produced for the website Conversatial, a website dedicated to overheard snippets of conversation.

I get given the snippet to illustrate without knowing anything about where it came from or in what context it was used. It is great fun working on these as it test my power of imagination and creativity.

Each illustration is accompanied with the conversation snippet (conversatial) I was given to work from.

Person 2: “Yeah.”




Person 1: “Do you like death?”
Person 2: “Er …”
Person 1: “The world is going to end tomorrow. I look forward to it.”
Person 2: “Why’s that?”
Person 1: “I think it will be relaxing”
