In 2010, illustrator Alex Noriega was having some problems at work and so he started a blog as a way to figure out where he was going wrong. "I wanted to put on paper all that I had learned in life as simple as possible and try to see if what was happening around me made any sense," he says. Although it didn't help him to make sense of anything, it did however lead to this beautiful series of illustrations.

His blog is called Stuff No One Told Me (SNOTM for short), but while Alex may have learned life's lessons the hard way, he's making it easy for the rest of us by teaching us everything we need to know. His illustrations range from sobering reminders of things we often overlook in life to useful nuggets of zen-like wisdom to help us to become more conscientious humans. Take a look for yourself, and don't say no one told you.

Wasn't this from the 'Sunscreen' song, by Baz Luhrman?

I think it's mostly a sign of confidence. Everyone has ideas, most people consider their own ideas dumb and let it end there, creative people believe and let them flow
