Speech bubbles are graphic convention used most commonly in comics, cartoons, and illustrations. Instead of putting words into it to represent speech or thoughts of a character, what if the speech bubble itself has its own expression and characteristic?

In this series of illustrations, I wanted to explore the possibilities of telling a story or conveying a message by speech bubbles themselves graphically, without words.
