Hiccups and Snoozes

we live in the retrospects

Posted in drawing, talks by Rui on December 30, 2013


Here is an assemblage of some 2-5 min gesture drawings I did over the past year. I did not draw that much… I am trying to draw more, but most of the time, I just ended up watching more movies.

The greatest gift bestowed upon me while living in a temperate country is the acute awareness of the passage of time. It’s like a form of memento mori. I was enjoying the beauty of autumn, then it transcended into winter. The change is evidential, you literally feel it in your fingertips… Does it help me to quit procrastination? Not really, I just shorten its duration nowadays.

How was my 2013? It was a stormy year. … let’s say if I could turn back time and make changes to any year in my life, I would probably delete and restart 2006 or 2007 or both, so… 2013 isn’t that disastrous but it is certainly not one of the best years in my life. In the hope of my future and the pursuit of a dream, I am coping… I don’t know how future will unfold for me, but I do know that whatever happens, 2013 is, undoubtedly, a very important year in my life, no matter how shitty it has been.

How’s your 2013?

If it hasn’t been all that good, I hope 2014 will be kinder; if it was great, I hope 2014 will be even more wonderful. May you have many great adventures!
