This public diary began as my personal sketchbook in 2013. As the book progressed, I began composing the spreads with the eye of the public in mind. Over the course of two years, personal entries surrounding a romantic relationship became the focus of the book. Completed in 2015, "Dear Mario" is now broken into three confessional diaries which span two years of the start, progression, and eventual end of the relationship. When presented in gallery settings, the books are presented for the public to handle.
