The Story of Ace… Preview!

– From Lele Corvi’s Preface –

How did I meet Ace?  Anna introduced him to me.

Anna is a volcano of ideas and projects. Whether it’s a story, a poem, an e-mail, or a message on some social, with a few words rich with enthusiasm she can create a world populated by her imagination and her thoughts as well as by her reader, whom she pulls into the whole thing. And that’s what happened to me with Ace.

In actuality, Anna didn’t only introduce Ace to me. She boldly rang the doorbell, and when the door was barely open, shoved him inside, giving me the possibility of taking care of him and observing him for a bit until I was convinced that Ace was a little mine, too.

It was easy. Ace, just like his creator, is always moving around, looking for adventures, wandering the streets of the cities where he ends up, and exploring fields of emotions. Ace is always ready to observe the behavior of us humans, but also to reflect on his own actions in this world, trying to adapt, but always without losing his own strong personality.

Ace is likeable because, even though he comes from another planet and is a dog, he is one of us. Ace is EVERYONE of us. With his vulnerability, his strengths, his uncertainty, and his non-negotiable points-of-reference, with his satisfactions and his delusions, he is able to make us identify with his thoughts.

And that’s how I found myself drawing Ace. Beyond the image of a dog, though, I also drew myself, and for this I thank Anna. (…)
