It’s the tenth of January and I decided to, finally and officially, start my year, drawing this.
It was the Spring of 2017 when I was following a drawing course at the Andromeda Art Laboratory, in Trento. We were exercising on shapes, objects and movement and I was copying a famous illustration of a flying hat, made by I dunno any more what amazing artist.
So, I had drawn a saggy and quite mediocre hat with pencil – not so different from this one I just did – and Toti, the teacher, came to me and, looking from over my shoulder, said excited: “It flies!”
So this is my wish for us all: to manage to draw our flying hat. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it doesn’t have to be pretty, the important thing is that it flies, making us happy.
Happy new year.
