“Sleeping or what?” (#304: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Thurs 31 Oct. Wasn’t too sure if he was sleeping or watching a video on this phone (there was a glare). Maybe he was reading an ebook and fell asleep. He wasn’t sketching for sure.

“Hope for the best” (#303: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Wed 30 Oct. He seemed to be praying to the Lords of the Mobile net, maybe praying hard for good exam results. Or wishing his girlfriend would call him.

“The Oracle of Three” (#302: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Tue 29 Oct. (Another of my made-up urban myth) There’s a train carriage where the Oracle sits. They are the Oracle of Three. Sometimes they appear as all women (or men) in office attire. Other times they could appear as a housewife, a transient worker, and a student (like this sketch). To consult the oracle, you type a message on your mobile device (email, note, sketch — doesn’t have to be sent; suffice that it’s on your phone). The oracle replies via an electronic message, always. Sometimes their message comes as an unsolicited message exhorting you to take up a loan, or to buy something that you don’t really need but want. Or a stranger who found your profile online and wants to be your friend. Or it could be a message from a friend. Like all oracle messages past and present, how you interpret it is entirely your choice.

“The Sikh behind the Glass” (#301: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Mon 28 Oct. The title sounds like some spy thriller novel. But it was literally a Sikh who happened to be seated at the corner seat, adjacent to a green-tinted glass panel. I was standing on the opposite side of the glass.

“Ode to the Sun” (#300: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Sun 27 Oct. Just realised today marked the 300th day of 2013. And it’s a Sunday. A few days ago a friend posted a NASA image of the inner workings of the sun, and suggested that I render something similar. This is my abstract interpretation. Didn’t see much of the sun today though. Cool and rainy.

“Kellogg Girl” (#299: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Sat 26 Oct. There was a train poster advert, featuring a woman (who looked a little too thin in my view) in a bright red top against a red background. She was styled to look like a Korean pop star. I thought it was for a cosmetic product but turned out it was for a cereal. Apparently the brand positioning has gone the way of Asian idols.

“Urban Elf Girl” (#298: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Fri 25 Oct. Her hair, and her quiet serious looking pose, made me think of an elf. Picture this: the world of fantasy has melded with high-tech, in a mundane sort of way. Elven folks have become urbanised and they go to work or shop in malls. The magic is in that their high-tech gadgets are all powered by magic. Like her phone. Maybe she’s playing Dungeons and Dragons 5.0 on her magicked phone.
