Semi-Fictional Character of the Day #day11

February 27, 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.

‘Could you be a volunteer with Double Double?’ the leaflet read. She hesitated at first, but she finally contacted the organisation’s manager and before she knew it, she was helping older people in her area who needed support. She was a sought after stylist, so in between fittings, sample sales and shopping for her rich, busy clients, she would drop by for a coffee, check that someone is alright or help with a trip to the shops. She made friends; real, unpretentious ones. Like the one she had stopped in the street, back in December, in freezing cold, asking if she could borrow his cashmere overcoat for her shoot.That’s when it all started.
