Amusing Illustrations Playfully Show the “True” Meanings of Idioms

Idioms are a smart way to carry emotions and make comparisons, but what if you aren’t sure of what they’re supposed to mean? Keren Rosen imagines the literal, actual definitions of idioms in a funny ongoing project. The simplistic, cartoonish images break down the meaning of each word and illustrate their individual definitions. Then, Rosen connects the two or three different elements into a single interesting composition.

If you find these funny illustrations as charming as we do, you can purchase as prints in Rosen’s Etsy shop.
