One task, everyday X 100 Days. I am doing one illustration each day for words that cannot be Anglicized word for word.

A personal project where I aimed to illustrate words found in foreign languages that cannot be Anglicised word for word. All the words were found in Adam Jacot de Boinod's books. Adam Jacot de Boinod is the author of The Meaning of Tingo and Other Extraordinary Words from around the World, published by Penguin Books and creator of the iPhone App Tingo, a quiz about unusual words.
