Dreamworks Artist Avner Geller Chronicles Overheard Conversations In Funny Illustrations

People say the funniest things when they think no one is listening. Avner Geller is an artist who works at Dreamworks Animation and often overhears funny and weird things people say to each other. The Illustrations below are samples of a book project titled ‘Overheard’ (working title) which is a collection of illustrations based on real conversations.
‘The idea for “#ThingsThatiHear” arrived when I was visiting a cookware store in Los Angeles. A young woman was looking at her phone and gave a big sigh, turned to her friend decisively and exclaimed, “He wants to go to Bali. But I say Fiji!” I couldn’t help but laugh. The absurdity of this “first world problem” was too much. From that moment on I started to catch all sorts of real-life conversations, that eventually turned into these illustrations. The characters in the world of “#ThingsThatiHear” are people we all know: They are our office mates who complain to us about the daily grind. They are the awful online date we are trying so hard to forget. They are the people silently stalking our Facebook. More than anything they are the US when we think no one is listening.’ – Avner Geller
