I got bored since yesterday because I finished all my works (the one that pays the bills) in no time, I cannot run on the road because I got ugly and painful blisters on my left knee (road accident) and I am still having a hard time figuring out Addie’s blackout poetry. Poetry is hard enough and finding words in an article to compose one rhyme is worse. Just because you can write well, doesn’t mean you can compose poems. But no worries, I can draw (not so) well, but at least I am comfortable at it. So presenting my original line of art, my first blackout doodles!
The rules are simple. Draw it, Scan it, Edit it and Invert it (using any picture editor). Just Draw all you want . Just remember, in illustrating it is better if your drawing tells a story. In that way you can save all the effort in brainstorming any themes. That makes drawing more personal and self-indulgent. Share and brag about it
So here’s the story of my blackout doodles.
I posted a couple of days ago that the hotel I am working almost got burned down. If it’s not for the bravery of the two men who risked their lives I would not have a job and a wi-fi connection to post this blog into the net. There was 3 of us who went on the third floor where a circuit breaker panel that houses electrical connection caught fire. The hotel manager asked me to escort the remaining guest to safety through the fire exit. While he and the security officer, ignoring personal safety, remained behind to kill the fire even though they could hardly breath and see at all because of the smoke. It was almost a suicide mission because any moment the damn thing could explode. And they averted a major disaster. Sir NPM and SG Bawisan were the real heroes that day. They deserve the credit, I was there and not much people knew how brave they were out there. And for that I offer immortal glory through doodles. They are the Fire Killers.Teach me how to Doodle:
