#DearDiarySeries :Sinomonde Ngwane’s illustrations based on people’s private confessions.
Sinomonde Ngwane is a graphic designer and illustrator based in Durban. She realised her creative flair at a young age where she’d find herself drawing and making dolls for her and her sister. Sinomonde recently started a project called #DearDiary series; a personal project where she created a link for people to send her anonymous confessions.
I respect and appreciate the work that you are creating. How many confessions are you planning on putting out?
thank you so much for this, I will be publishing 30 and will be making an ebook from them. I also plan on sharing the other ones as well.
That really sounds awesome, what motivated you to get involved in a project of this kind?
I just wanted to create a space where people could vent and not feel judged. I wanted to make an art of people’s pain while trying to raise an awareness on the issues that people face.
The aim of the project was to show the vulnerabilities of people and show the side which we do not ever show on social media. I wanted to create a space where people did not feel judged and had the chance to vent and see their confession become art.
Here are some of the #DearDiaryseries illustrations below.
