Lady Orlando's Moly arrived safe and sound...

Just an update... I received Lady Orlando's moly in the mail on Friday from Mr. Nightmare (by the way - coolest last name ever!) and was so surprised at the artwork in front of me. Seeing these molies online and looking at the screen does absolutely nothing for the subtlety when holding them in your hands.

Yoda, I don't know how you did it...but those hatch marks on the ghosts are just beautiful. I am both mesmerized and completely jealous....I've no idea how to shade ghosts, lol.

And Michael...oh my goodness, I am stumped on how to incorporate those smooth feathery-like lines into my portion of the artwork. They are just gorgeous up close, I am torn on whether to use them in my piece or find a way to transition away from them....hmmmmm...too many decisions. Hee hee.

My entry in Josh's moleskin!

Sorry it has taken me a while, it's a little more nerve wracking adding to someone Else's moleskin but I got there in the end. Here are my monsters, a kind of mummy monster leading her offspring to whatever may be going on through the following pages?
Very grey days mean it's difficult to get a nice picture so I took a few!

I am also unsure as to whom I am sending Josh's moleskin to now, if anyone knows can you send me details, thank you very much.

Jessica's Moly's here in Italy

I received Jessica's Moly yesterday. Her drawing, plus Esek's entry, are amazingly beautiful.

So far, I've got two journals in my hands and I should start working on them asap - I believe. I got so many images floating in my head that I'm not able to make up my mind! :)

Again, I'm really happy to be part of this group, which seems to be going on nicely! Thanks Bill for strarting it - thank you all for joining!

Hi, everyone!

I have received Michael’s moly from Kelley today. Now I have two molys for this exchange. It makes me a little bit nerves. I still have only line drawing in Kelley’s moly.

And I have a question: this exchange will work only if we have full circle. Did anybody contact Kevin from Colombia? Is he still with us? Hi did not post anything here.

Michael's Moly Thus Far.... after getting Michael's moly last week, and noticing just how close we are geographically I had to make some sort of reference to the area. What better way than to include one of my monsters wearing a t-shirt from the so-called Happiest Place on Earth? (hee hee) Michael, I hope you like it. I tried to keep your bright color palette going, and even managed to bring your textured, swirly background over a bit farther. Sorry for the cut and paste job in Photoshop, but I wanted you to see it in all it's horizontal glory :)

‘What’s in your Moleskine’ Contest Deadline 11/14

Promote yourself and moly_x. Enter your fabulous moly_x entries.

Moleskine, the heir to the legendary notebook, wants to know what’s inside your Moleskine! With over 140 different formats and styles, there are many different ways to use a Moleskine—to sketch, write, watercolor, reflect, collage, collect mementos and as photo albums.

In celebration of creativity and imagination, Moleskine is looking for readers to share photos and comments about their Moleskines. Email pictures of what’s in your Moleskine to with the subject line “MOLESKINE.”

Five submissions will be randomly selected to receive a Free Moleskine Pack of Notebooks. The pack will include a Pocket Ruled Notebook, a Pocket Sketchbook and a Pack of Plain Kraft Pocket Cahiers.

We’ll post the images on an upcoming post announcing the winners! Also check out our Facebook Company Page to see the latest entries. Entries must be submitted by Friday Nov 14th.

Fest of the Monsters

Better late than never? I hope so ;)

By the way, presentation. My name is Josan, I live in Pineda, "near" Barcelona in Spain. Actually I work as designer for a client of Inditex (Zara, Pull&Bear, Bershka, etc), I'm 25 years old and thats pretty much all :p, this is my first exchange group tho I like this whole idea and im hoping to do a lot more.

With my entry I suggest the idea of a big dinning table all filled with monsters, so you are invited to follow the table but of course you guys are free to do anything you feel like

This friday or so ill go to the post office and send the book to Kevin ;), and I should be recieving BF664's book soon enough

Bill's Moly's in Italy

Just a short note to inform that Esek_one's Moly is here in Italy! Great! Bill's entry is absolutely amazing (even more than it seemed in picture) and very original. I'm starting to plan my drawing to be made next to his on the Moly.

Any news from the other members of the group?

My Moly, ready to fly to Spain...

Hi, everyone!

Here it is my entry in my own Moly (sorry for the bad quality of the scanned image). I know it's very simple, but I like very simple but colourful things. The title of this drawing is: "It's time to connect our monstrous bits". Just imagine the spooky inhabitants of all our brains, hands, ears, eyes,...all trying to assemble, all struggling to reach for each other, all moving and transforming...and then again separating and going for other bits somewhere else! :)

Hope you like it.

Anyway, I'm going to give it a final hand of colour and then I'm sending it to Cirus on next Monday (post offices are closed this weekend here).
