Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)

My first sketch very much driven by feelings and strong expressions. I try to explore the complexity of cyber security and its impact on the human being and its well-being. In my exploration I found a being that might help me and others in the cyber security. This being handles us, our world and cyber world with great care. It creates tools for us with great care that might help me and all other human being to live safer, more secure and better in cyber space.

Sketch 2 (1,500 characters)

I developed the first wild sketch further. My goal was to use the wise being "Lee O Ra" to hold the torch for us humans and assist us with several cyber security topics. The being is my good companion I need when moving through cyber space. Lee O Ra gives me a whole picture and not an isolated one. Lee explains me the impact of small actions or mistakes. Like that I understand that even small mistakes might have impact on millions of people. Lee provides me with advices to minimize risks.

What have you learned through this sketching process? (1,000 characters)

I learned that the topic is huge. You can walk thousands of ways. I was not aware that cybersecurity has such complexity and broadness. In the begining it was difficult to decide where to start. I decided a very human approach: I started with my inner feelings and tried to express them visually. For my process this is a key learning: trigger everything from the bottom of your heart and empathize with the heart of all other living beings.
