“One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can’t utter.” - James Earl Jones. We live in an age where communication is easier than it has ever been, yet articulating complex emotions is still one of the most difficult acts of human nature. In this new world of efficiency, we’ve forgotten that what we say is just as important as how and where we say it. Papyrus cards and stationery are as stunning and unique as the people that receive them. For Papyrus, I wanted to illustrate the one-of-a-kind way their products are canvases to help us garner the courage to tell someone anything that's weighing heavy on the heart. When we can’t find the words we need to express ourselves or the medium, Papyrus is there to help us write it out.

“There are so many things I want to say to you, but I simply cannot find the right words to make you truly understand.”

“You are my best friend, my human diary, and my other half. You mean the world to me, and I love you.”

“You know that feeling you get when you finally achieve something in your life that makes you feel so happy that words can’t explain it? Well, that’s how I felt when I met you. I love you without knowing how, or when, of from where. I love you straightforwardly without complexities or pride. I love you because I know no other way than this: where I do 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. Each day I find more happiness in you. Our love grows sweeter and stronger each day. I dreamed with you and my dreams came true. I love you.”
