Inspiration: Art

Invented Stories

by Hugo Seijas 4

Illustrator extraordinaire Fernanda Guedes from São Paulo, Brazil has a flickr feed filled to the brim with eye candy, including our favorite series of hers, "People and Their Invented Histories."

In this set, she chooses a picture from Facehunter or The Sartorialist and fictionalizes a profile for the stranger in the photograph. The drawings and characters she develops seem to be fascinating people and it leaves me wondering if by some supernatural occurrence, the made-up story could have ever mirrored that person's reality.

  4. This is an interesting project. It would be great if someone drawn here were to stumble upon this and read their made up bio. I wonder if any are close.
