“Figuring out Eights” (#327: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Sat 23 Nov. Among the Hindu-Arabic numerals, the number “8” tends to be favoured by the Chinese. In the Cantonese dialect or Han mandarin, “8” sounds like “prosper”. I like “8” because it’s the most symmetrical looking symbol among the numbers. This doodle, obviously non-symmetrical, is a representation of the number eight. Interestingly, my the iPhone keeps auto-correcting the word “eight” as “right”.
