I dreamt I was a skater heroin


El nuevo año, las nuevas series, sentir que el comienzo sólo se parece a lo que viene después, que hay un antes y un después y que nada es lo mismo y todo va acumulándose sobre mí. Sentir que hay aire, hay movimiento, hay alegría y hay un papel en blanco esperando. Somos un papel en blanco en el que vamos emborronando fórmulas. Sonrío porque aunque no entiendo mis garabatos, algún día los entenderé.

The new year, the new series, feeling the beginning is only similar to what it'll come after it, feeling there's always a before and an after, and nothing feels the same and everything is accumulating over me. Feeling the air, the movement, the joy, the empty white paper awaiting. We are a white paper where we doodle and smudge our formulas. I smile because sometimes I don't understand m doodling but I know that I will.

Oooh! I like the look of this, Esti! Can't wait to see what doodles flow from your pen, and what they become. :-)

feliz año nuevo, Esti!

I wish you a 2010 full of time and inspiration! (when I told my father in law that I wish to have more time he said he could post me El Tiempo...)

This is going to be an amazing series! I love how it gets out of the frame. Oh, when did I last skateboard? Hmmmm, approximately 30 years ago. Perhaps I should step out of my current frame a bit and revisit old pleasures and challenges?

Esti said...

Happy new year to you all too! and thank you all for your kind words on my drawings. You'll get to see a lot more of them this year, I'm sure, along with some exciting new projects.

alexandra, do you know that Time and Weather share the same word in Spanish: Tiempo. I wonder why that is... I hope you get your share this year. We have wonderful things ahead of us. And, by the way, I was so happy to see you pop up out of Camilla's book that I just received. A treat, really.

anairam, exactly. Let's come out of our frame every now and then :)
