an "A" for Morrie

NOV 6. 2013

I read "Tuesdays with Morrie" by Mitch Albom a couple of months ago. It left a big impression on me and it's one of those stories that I sometimes think it's from a friend/relative who told me the story. And sometimes, it felt like I was part of the story. I couldn't help but love Morrie and wanted to hug him everytime.

I will start reading it again, taking notes and let's see what Morrie tells me this time...

NOV. 26 2014

At this point, I have re-read the book about 2/3 of the way and I believe I have a pretty good idea of what I need to make.

Below are some screensots of my notes...

Morrie was a great man, he loved to dance like nobody's business, he loved to swim, he was a very active man. But he got ALS and was now loosing his ability to move around, he was becoming a "statue". He was a dancer trapped in a stiff body.

Because of that, I want to draw an "A" that represents the movement that Morrie lived all his life in the form of a statue, something that resembles movement in the form of beign stuck.

Below are some initial (bad) ideas....

I'll continue working on new sketches, hopefully something good will come out.
