STAY ALIVE BOOK
Inspired by Twenty One Pilots and their courage to share hardships through music, I’ve chosen to confront my personal struggles through art, design, and writing. The hand-done book is a nonlinear autobiographical narrative that relies on a spontaneous approach directly reflecting my emotional and/or mental state at the time. STAY ALIVE BOOK gathers words from various musicians, poets, writers, and films with heavy emphasis on Twenty One Pilots. Interjected throughout STAY ALIVE BOOK are also words from people in my life and myself. What began as cathartic exercise has grown into a series of posters merging abstract art and analog typography.
STAY ALIVE BOOK is an ongoing work-in-progress that may never have an end. It is evidence that the act of creating is an effective tool for learning to live with the internal storm. STAY ALIVE BOOK exists to encourage others to take ownership of their demons by channeling pain into something to be used to create.
