My Old Phone:
This is an ink sketchbook drawing of my old phone. It includes collage and reminds me of that summer moment. The longer I draw, the more information I want to remind me of that day notated on the sketch. I want the date, the time, the temperature, the type of weather, the kind of media I used and what colors. I have been known to include quotes, recipes, what was playing in the background and overheard conversations.
No Need for a New Phone Yet:
An Uber driver recently gave me the business about having such an old phone. I was planning to get a new one, but since the old one still worked it wasn’t a big priority. Just before I made a down payment for a new one and agreed to an additional $29 a month fee for two years to pay for it, I learned that the latest phones don’t allow you to take the battery or sd card out. Hell that. So instead I got a new sd card for the old phone; it works even better now. Another dodged bullet.
