Revisiting the Things You've Been Meaning To Do

Last year, while illustrator Joanna Neborsky was interning at the Brooklyn studio Citizen Scholar, she was asked to create some illustrations to accompany a poster that the studio had made about reducing your impact in the world. The project would eventually become “Things You’ve Been Meaning To Do,” which was posted to the studio’s website.

We’ve admired the work of Ms. Neborsky, who admits to working in a “completely chaotic and accident-prone style,” ever since Three-Line Novels came out in September. With New Year’s resolution season upon us, we asked her to revisit her illustrations for “Things You’ve Been Meaning To Do” and talk about the concepts themselves. “They aren’t scolding,” she says. “These are just gentle reminders. They are nudges for the lapsed or lazy environmentalist, of which I am one.”

TAKE THE BUS

“I love to draw buses. They are so childlike; they have all those wheels. I love pattern-making, and wheel-making, with a bus, you have a couple of wheels (or if you want to get crazy, maybe four) and you can switch up the patterns and colors. People said this reminded them of the old Marimekko sheets that kids slept on in the 70s and 80s.”
