Dear Ruksi

Creating connection through personal stories & illustration

Dear Ruksi Project

This project is built through authentic storytelling, vulnerability and shared compassion.
It functions almost as an illustrative advice column: it invites the public to share their feelings with me anonymously; in return, I create an illustration to capture their feelings. I've drawn over 50+ stories, many of which can be read on my blog.

Below you will see examples of letters sent to me which are distilled down to a singular obscure emotion phrase.

The Power of Creative Storytelling

It's been powerful to be directly involved in creating work that is deeply personal to someone else.
The letters I receive have been heart-wrenching and also beautifully honest. They have showed me that although we may feel alone, we are not as alone as we may think; we're living one big human experience together.
