Yet another tessellation about #cellphonezombies! Contemporary topic. This tessellation seen from a low wide-angle view, we can see a truck’s tire coming from behind our character, and above the roadway disappearing far behind him. Yes, busy, mesmerized by his cellphone, oblivious. What a weird word. Oublie-vie-ah. Forget-your-life.Anyway, he’s an obstruction on the road. He could get obliterated by any number of vehicles.
Oblivious Obstruction Obliterated! Amazing what bounces around in your head when you are drawing. Sounds like it could come from the mouth of the snow-plough driver in “Home Alone”.
Maybe there should be an app for cellphones, one that uses the integrated camera while the pedestrian is walking, and warns of oncoming traffic, a small sensor device, maybe a little floating video window that shows what’s ahead. Who knows, maybe it even warns the user with a flashing amber light on his screen to look up an pay attention. Oh, hang on, we already have that programmed — it’s called your eyes and your brain! Awareness.
Here is a zoom into the character. Watch out for that truck behind you!
