Visual Vocabulary: Atonic

Atonic: lacking muscular tone. As in, “When Popeye traded in his canned spinach for fresh kale, his once whopping forearms became atonic, and Olive Oyl began to use them to play double dutch with Bluto.”

Visual Vocabulary: atonic, Julie Rado Design


It's ok Popeye, I don't trust kale either. Come to think of it, nor do I trust canned spinach, so I guess I should be safe from either extreme.

Visual Vocabulary is a project I created for myself in which I attempt to sear new words into my memory by illustrating them. You can see all of them here, and read more about the process behind them here.
