Alex Noriega – Stuff no one told me

We all go through those periods when things don’t make sense and we need to figure it out. Alex Noriega is no exception. This illustrator was facing some problems at work back in 2010 and he decided to start a blog to help him understand what was 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.

Now I don’t know is Alex made sense of it all, but we’re happy he started his journey as it led to a series of illustrations that we really love. He captures short life lessons and presents them through his drawings. Sometimes we get a real wisdom pearl, and sometimes we are reminded of that basic life truth that we so easily forget. He’s here sharing his lessons that no one told him about, warning us all about things that can easily be overlooked. Alex Noriega is still working on his blog that is called (you guessed?) Stuff No One Told Me. His lessons talk about success, human nature, love and life. Those are all areas in which we can always learn more, so we invite you to have a look at this artist’s work and we’re sure you’ll be nodding your head in approval.
