Stuff No One Told Me!

In 2010, illustrator Alex Noriega was having some problems at work and so he started a blog as a way to figure out where he was going wrong. “I wanted to put on paper all that I had learned in life as simple as possible and try to see if what was happening around me made any sense,” he says. Although it didn’t help him to make sense of anything, it did however lead to this beautiful series of illustrations.

His blog is called Stuff No One Told Me (SNOTM for short), but while Alex may have learned life’s lessons the hard way, he’s making it easy for the rest of us by teaching us everything we need to know. His illustrations range from sobering reminders of things we often overlook in life to useful nuggets of zen-like wisdom to help us to become more conscientious humans. Take a look for yourself, and don’t say no one told you.stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-9-5742ed3bf2f8d__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-15-5742ed4d41dd3__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-20-5742ed5ad8dff__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-21-5742ed5d7d102__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-36-5742eca1ce1a9__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-39-5742ecaacfbec__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-40-5742ecae0d33a__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-41-5742ecb14bab6__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-45-5742ecbe83f87__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-46-5742ecc1550f3__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-49-5742ecc9a32ba__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-50-5742eccc4d692__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-52-5742ecd0af267__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-57-5742ecde29547__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-63-5742ecef22d9a__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-64-5742ecf1eb974__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-68-5742ecfe0f107__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-74-5742ed1720198__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-76-5742ed1b8706d__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-79-5742ed261b36a__605 stuff-no-one-told-me-snotm-alex-noriega-81
