Personal Project 
Adults’ Time-Out

Phineas and Ferb – a Disney show about 2 kids inventing crazy stuff throughout 104 days of summer. And the “briefs” behind their ideas? They made them all up, taking inspiration from whatever happens around them or whatever/whoever matters to them.

So, we copied them. We picture every invention that we think the world needs (or at least we need) on a daily basis, draw them out, and post them on the Internet (while anxiously waiting for a loud Candace to come and bust us).

Also, since we’re role-playing ourselves as kids, no science or logic is greeted here. We simply invent these with our 5-year-old brains, our keen hearts, and our shitty drawing skills.

From Berlin to Virginia, 2020


We posted our horrible drawings on an Instagram account called @adults.timeout, hoping to take daily breaks from the constant stress of having to think like adults. Apparently, it helps – not just us, but quite a few other adults out there.
