Semi-Fictional Character of the Day #day18

March 6, 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.

But she dreaded the stagnation. She missed the motion, the wooziness, the thrill. It was as if they had both unexpectedly landed on solid ground, yet she had secretly hoped for quicksand; she would either swim or sink. She didn’t trust walking anymore.
