This artist illustrated people in exchange for their secrets

Terence Eduarte is an artist from Philippines who illustrated people in exchange for their secrets for 100 days. I picked out my favorites, but you can check out the rest on the following link (click!).

#1 "It was my 28th birthday last week and no one remembered it. Not a single call or text from my friends and family. So I woke up the next day, sat outside my house and cried quietly. My dog came and started crying too. It was the most beautiful thing someone has ever done for me."

#14 "I lost my smile a long time ago. Now I go everywhere hoping nobody will notice that this isn't my smile anymore."

#21 "I am generally thankful and happy about what I've got in my life. But I always feel like there is a black hole in my heart that no one would understand, some pain just won't go away and I'm trying hard to live with it."

#34 "I'm so self-conscious that I can't even go to the grocery without comparing myself to other women there."

#43 "I was born into a culture that never accepted me. Born to an Arab father and European mother. I am constantly fighting two sides of my identity. Anxiety and depression has completely taken over me."

#47 "I have a weird obsession with smelling the scent of paper and hearing the sound while flipping through the pages."
