Semi-Fictional Character of the Day #day9

February 25, 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.

My mama was a storyteller. I grew up surrounded by stories but I never listened to any of them. Years went by and I was still not paying attention, still rolling my eyes, as if I had heard it all before. And before I knew it, I was 17. Broken, bruised, scarred. Mama didn’t judge, didn’t ask, didn’t punish. But she gave me a story. That’s when I started listening.
