I came up with the concept and created the sketch by myself.
Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)
I started with a sketch of a "bleeding" tomato that can also be seen as a ketchup commercial. It means a pure fresh tomato can be used as something violent or something innocent with different filters on.
I later created "Divided Truth" under the deep concern about what has been going on between Hong Kong and mainland China. Being a residence of New York, I have a wide range of accesses to media from people in HongKong and opinions from around the world. My family members who reside in mainland China have opposite views about such issue than me. At this point, I found myself has lost the ability to trust what I have seen on media. Perhaps me and my family both seeing part of the truth. We are both right at some point because we see filtered reality. We are divided by what we believe is right.
Sketch 2 (1,500 characters)
I played around with the color on Procreate. I later realized the bright blue and agenda is too serious looking. I used lighter and much more innocent color to tell people what we are seeing are not necessarily harmful if we try to communicate and understand what the other person is seeing.
What have you learned through this sketching process? (1,000 characters)
In the presentation slides, I have learned the importance of color consistency. I tried to stick with black, white, and blue with my sketch. I am fascinated by the idea of alarming people with not so obvious warning.
