Semi-Fictional Character of the Day #day26

March 14, 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 wait in the living room. Still in my pyjamas, messy bed hair, I pace back and forth, glancing worriedly at the pile of work on my desk. It’s the day you go home. The radio is on and a pot of coffee is ready. We say good morning, have coffee and agree that the weather is not terrible. We smile and nod, and say how nice it was to see each other again. We talk about nothing a little bit more. We are already at the door when you notice the song on the radio. ‘Marvin Gaye….’ you say and smile. It’s Stevie Wonder, but I nod in agreement.
