Visual Vocabulary: Stolid

Stolid: showing little emotion; not easily aroused or excited. As in, “The bulldog eyed the fire hydrant, but remained stolid, as was his nature. Frankly, it was unimpressive.” 

Visual Vocabulary: stolid, Julie Rado Design


I will admit that this week I took a shortcut and re-used this bulldog illustration. I created him (and a bunch of other fun critters) for a client project that never saw the light of day. But I couldn’t bear to keep him buried on a hard drive, so I finally took him out for a walk. He has yet to voice his appreciation. 

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.
