Happy New Year, everyone!

I just wanted to write a post to say Happy New Year to everyone. Wherever you are celebrating, I wish you all good times and fun parties with family and friends. Stay safe and make sure to avoid all the wack-o's out there.... well unless you are one of the wack-o's then I don't know what to tell you :P

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for a great moly experience...this is the first exchange I joined and so far the most reliable. I am in a total of four at this point and getting frustrated with a few of the others. People just seem to be dropping like flies and the rest of us get left wondering what the devil is going on. So thank you to everyone for posting regularly and creating such a fun experience for a newbie :)

Because the other exchanges have made me paranoid I just wanted to dibujos! aka Kevin still with us? I don't remember seeing a post from him and was just curious if anyone knew his status. Seeing as there are so many of us in this exchange, I'm sure it's easy to get lost sometimes....Just thought I'd ask.

Hope everyone has fun tonight! Stay safe and Happy 2009 to all of you!! Woo hoo!!

Bf66's Entry in Bill/EsekOne' s Moly

Me again!

Today I finished my entry in Bill's Moly, so I'm posting it as well.

I decided to keep some elements from Bill, 'copying' them but using them differently: the idea of the insect eaters; the little butterflies and the flowers, drawn 'in Bill's style'; the little green 'swarming' points.

So you have a nice couple of bean monsters enjoying a picnic out on a sunny day. One of the monsters is trying to catch butterflies for the breakfast; the other is making a butterfly-butter&bread snack. In the meanwhile, a little monster kid's inspecting a worm with a magnifying glass.

I used fibre pens, pencils and 'pencil dust' (I don't know how to say it English: when you sharpen a pencil and use the sharpened bits of colour to draw a dusty background - tell me the name of this if you know, please).

I'm posting Bill's entry on his Moly as a 'reminder', and my entry!

Bill, tell me if you like it! I hope it!


To Bill: I'm afraid you forgot to put your adress on the fist page of you own Moly, under the indication 'in case of loss...' (a very important piece of info, I think). Would you mind if I do it for you? I have your complete address on the envelopes and I can manage Greek letters. If you allow me to do it, I'll do it.

Bf664's Entry in Jesse's Moly, with picture

Hi, everyone! My scanner seems to have recovered, so I can finally post a picture of the entry I did some weeks ago in Jesse's Moly.

If you take a look at one of my older posts where I describe the drawing, you will be able to read an 'explanation'. Here I'm also posting the photo, so you have the whole thing.

I'm uploading Jesse's entry, than Jesse+Bill/Esek entries, then mine alone- which is the Xmas one.

Hope you like it!

Entry in Jessica's Moly

Dear all,

I've completed my entry in Jessica's Moly (which also features Esek's drawing), but I'm not able to post any picture of it. My scanner doesn't work anymore (I'm getting mad at it and I think I'll smash the damn thing up soon!), so I just can't send you any preview of how the Moly looks so far.

Anyway, I'll try to describe the entry. Given the fact that it's almost Xmas and all this enjoyable atmosphere's around, I got carried away by it. So I have drawn a spooky Father Xmas bringing his sack with presents. The sack is ripped and some presents have fallen and they're quequeing behind Santa Claus: a yellow bean monster, two haunted gift boxes hitting each other with candy sticks, a lollypop licking a puppet boy on the face and more other cute/spooky characters.

I've tried to keep two elements from Jessica and Esek's entries: the horizontal quequeing of the characters (Jesse and Esek) and the purple carpet (Esek). If you take a look at the pictures of they're entries you'll see what I mean.

That's all. Happy vacations to all of you!


PS Of course, J's Moly'll be sent very soon to Cirus.

Yoda's moly book is getting some bling, baby!

So upon receiving Lady Orlando's book from Michael Nightmare, I noticed something very humorous. It seems Mr. Nightmare decided to pull out the ol' gold pen and put a few gold caps on his ghosts. I, of course thought this was hysterical, but put it out of mind and got to drawing my entry. I decided at the beginning of my entry to use minimal colors and to leave the background open in a similar fashion to both Yoda and Michael, which is something I don't normally do, but I must admit I am pleased with the results. I was nearing the end of my shading and coloring in, I looked back over Yoda's book and those gold teeth kept popping out at me. Making me smile and I thought you know what? One of my monsters needs some gold chompers too. Only, me being me, and my sick sense of humor I took it a step further and gave my little guy a diamond grill, LOL. Yoda, I hope you get as much of a kick out of this as I did...because those four little rhinestones were a pain in the butt! LOL. Here, for your enjoyment is a close up of the grill, hee hee...

Ekaterina's Moly arrives via Josh

Ekaterina's lovely book has arrived with Josh's addition, it looks great, Josh also illustrated the envelope, which I have included in the picture.
Esek-one I forgot to say Josh's book is on its way to you, posted about three days ago!
I love the hot colours and delicate gold in Ekaterina's book and Josh's little will have to think about what to add to this?
