Semi-Fictional Character of the Day #day1

February 17, 2014

‘The Semi-Fictional Character of the Day’ is a joint, one-month project by Louiza Mallouri and Constantinos Xenofontos. Constantinos will be sketching a semi-fictional figure every day, and Louiza will be writing an accompanying storyline, as inspired by that character. The aim of this project is to explore the way two semiotic systems, the visual and the linguistic, interact and complement each other to tell a story.

I saw you. Walking across campus, buying overpriced coffee, David Foster Wallace at hand, an obscure, non relevant record goes through your headphones. It was a day after Valentine’s Day. You walked past, as I clumsily sketched on my notebook. Small talk: work and the weather. You complain about the sunshine, mock mainstream trends, you daydream on the spot with me. I almost recognise the teenager with whom I vowed to get out of here back then.
