The entire collection of “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” made with 0.10mm - 0.35mm - 0.70mm dots.

This collection was made for a workshop and a conference that I held in the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point during the NowHere conference, an annual event organized by the UWSP-AIGA chapter.

It doesn’t matter how many people you have in your life, if not even a single one can understand how you feel, you’re still alone after it all.

You can want to be the best at something, but you will never be unless you try.

"I don’t fear insects or spiders. At great heights, I jump off, smiling. In the face of death, I wink. But, when I look into your eyes, I’m in fear of how much I love you."

— Unknown

"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I knew no other way than this, where ‘I’ does not exist, nor ‘you’. So close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep."

Pablo Neruda

"I took a look at myself and said I was going nowhere holding on, but then I looked into your eyes and saw you smile, and my heart just felt those feelings like the first time it did, all over again."

"They say when you are missing someone that they are probably feeling the same, but I don’t think it’s possible for you to miss me as much as I’m missing you right now."

Edna St. Vincent Millay

"Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.

And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.

"

"Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself."
