The Open Source of Hovering Ideas

Trip to the Mall.. Are you serious?

A lot of things have changed as soon as I’ve graduated and started working a full-time job. But since I’ve already explained in my previous post, so let’s cut to the chase. Whether it’s professional or personal, Life is stressful and you need to take a break sometimes.

And how about going to the mall for a while?

I know most of you people will say this idea something ridiculous and gonna suggest rather go somewhere outside the city, maybe even outside the country. I don’t mind. But to be honest, It’s still fine with me to go somewhere near and do something rather than doing absolutely nothing. And besides, I’ve having fun anyway. Isn’t that having enough purpose to travel and enjoy life? 😀

But that’s not the topic I wanna discuss here and go further on a debate about traveling places. Instead, I’ll be sharing a story here and my experience in visiting malls, which explains why I sometimes prefer to go to the mall whether I’ve a movie/hangout plans or not.

Most of you know that I love art. I often keep doing some artistic and creative stuffs. That’s explains much about my twitter handle. Right? 😛 However, I’ve been obsessed with mall art for a long time. It has its own charm, especially during special occasions. Apart from taking some pictures (maybe few selfies), I’ll mostly stand there for minutes gazing the pattern and detailing of the work. Even I might take some time for thinking about my own interpretation. I know it seems weird and it’s OK. But it is inspiring me to do some other things that I love. Hopefully, I’ll make an alternate career from it someday. 😉

Here are some pictures I took so far.

And here a bit of story for those who already got bored. I once went with my sister to the mall nearby few weeks ago. She took me to this Forever 21 store for her shopping, which I think most girls and women do have some kinda obsession (Not judging anybody here). But for a guy like me, It is bit stressful while helping her out and sharing my opinion on what suits her best (And now, anybody don’t judge me here too). Sometimes I might try to check something at the men’s section for myself meanwhile. But damn sure, my shopping will be over in 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile she’ll make me to wait for over half an hour and I always in search for some time-pass.

And outta nowhere, I noticed this mannequin somewhere near denim section. I suddenly reached to my smartphone, opened my favorite sketching app and started doing what I always like to do.

Close enough, huh? 😉 My sister was impressed with this artwork once she was done with her shopping. She eventually credited herself for bringing the creative side of mine.

I guess I should stop by to other Fashion stores often.

But with my sketching pens and painting brush next time. 😛

P.S. And for your fun pleasure, Here’s something my colleague has to share. Enjoy. 😛

  3. I think the picture created while in the mall. I think it is way more appealing to the eye than the display. And how in the world did you get your fingers to work so well on a phone. That in itself is remarkable. I love your creativity, and the idea of getting idea from a trip to a mall is one of a kind Kudos to you.
