Visual Vocabulary: Torpid

Torpid: in a condition of biological rest or suspended animation; slow and apathetic. As in, "The idea of being torpid reminds me of the mosquito in Jurassic Park—one minute you're gorging yourself on delicious dinosaur blood, and the next minute your tubby self is becoming permanently torpid in some ill-placed dribble of sap. Let that be a lesson to all you young mosquitoes out there."

Visual Vocabulary: torpid, Julie Rado Design


The other thing torpid reminds me of? Me sitting on the couch watching (insert name of show here) on Netflix. With my snacks. Oh, can you relate?

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.
