Late!




Literally running seven years ago. Still running...
(Ballpen on Moleskine pocket notebook)


(I cannot believe this was selected for publication in a book. Don't some of your early works make you shudder?)


Thank you to all my friends for your birthday wishes. Tsup!!!

Hahahaha! I've done this. I've done the running through the airport thing. Several times. Never fun.

I absolutely cringe when I see my old work. I have to fight the urge to lock-on-target and destroy. But it's kinda fun, no? It's fascinating to see how much things have changed.

I love her flappy clothes and shoes. :)

I love how you are TALL in this one! But nope...I still love all of your work. Look at the movement you put in this. The focus is on the motion, urgency, and lateness. I love your new work too, with unbelievable detail, depth, and most of all, your brilliant mind. Stop putting my Cesalicious down!
teehee **kisskiss** Deb

oh, how I hate having to rush through the airport :O Love her big shoes and bag :)

Oh, I think it has some really interesting charm. The exaggerated limbs are really cool. And while you do some really great shoes these days, the shoes in this one are pretty great shoes! Great bag, too. But I totally know what you mean about reviewing past work. Although, I may feel the same one day about my current work. Hmm. Best not to think about that, haha. Happy belated birthday!

Don't you just hate it!?1? Aaaawww...I love all your old work. Mine were really scratch marks. They were just done in Bic ballpens. They really were doodles. Some were so awful. I remember the Moleskine I drew for you. Now I wish I was more careful and spent more time. Plus I think that drawing constantly improves one's lines. Hahaha. I exaggerated the feet then. Now, not so much.

I love how you always root for me. I love YOU! Tsup!

Ces Adorio said...

Thank you Karen. Hehehe. That's my Coach Metropolitan bag that I had since 1982. Still using it! How are you? Tsup!

Ces Adorio said...

Aaaw Cindy, thank you. I get a little too carried away with shoe details sometimes.It's fun viewing an artist's growth and it feels so special to be part of that process. Thank you!!!

J'adore ma chère Ces ce dessin. Il y a un tel mouvement... il me rappelle le dessin d'un conte que je me souviens avoir contemplé de très nombreuses fois lorsque j'étais enfant, celui des bottes de sept lieues.
Je te fais de gros bisous.

Not possible to get too carried away with shoe details! Aside from being a cool accessory, shoes are a key foundational staple of many swank outfits! :D

Yes, I know what you mean by being appalled when you see your early work. But I suspect it's mainly the artist him/herself who has that reaction. And yes, it is fascinating to see how my work has changed. It probably means I've changed a lot too, hopefully in good ways...

This is a good one, Ces. Even if it is an antique.

I had an art instructor tell us to always keep every bad drawing we did so that we can look at it in years to come and see our improvement.

Baloney. I know how bad I sucked back then without seeing those drawings.

But why is it that your mother will save the most wretched thing you drew when you were young because she loves it, and always bring it out when people are visiting? You say, I will draw a new one better, but she won't have it, she likes the old one. :(

I'm feeling much better, thank you. Unfortunately I just got paperwork saying they are referring me to the oncology/rheumatology department because of my blood work, so say a little prayer for me. :) and of course my doctor didn't tell me anything about what it was in my blood work...
so I get to wonder for two weeks. arghhhh
