Hi all. Moly is done and just waiting for Zenia to be all moved in to her fab new flat. I will post pictures as soon as i can work out either how to use the scanner or get back to work to get my camera (I have been off with very painful kidney stones, which I was going to catch and stick in book but missed it so don't go looking for it, disappointing I know, we'll get over it.) and take some decent pictures, which rarely happens....anyhoo, love Kel and Zenias books, can't wait to get my next one.

Some goodbyes and a hello!

My first goodbye is to Trista. Sadly she has decided to leave the group and I am sure you all join me in wishing her well. I also want her to know she can jump back in at any time - at least a few of us may get our sketchbooks around the circle twice.

I had to said goodbye to my Moly - I packed it up with a warm sweater and a sandwich for the journey, kissed it fondly, told it not to get in strange cars, and most of all to have fun and write home often.

Here is my entry:

My theme is 'the view from here' but I am hoping that people will interpret that loosely: from this mornings coffee cup, to the view from their favourite spot, details of their city, or even their view of the world or the future.

I would like you to play by the following rules:
1. work in black/white/grey - I don't mind if it is pencil, pen, ink paint, crayon whatever.
2. start your work on the last page of the previous entry (Eg. my page of clouds for Patrick) and leave some space on your last page for the next artist.
3. *optional challenge* please include a tree or part of a tree (leaf, acorn, etc) somewhere in your work. The tree is a personal symbol for me, and I would love to see your take on this.

Have fun! I can't wait to see some more entries. I got to say hello to Zenia's and I can't wait to start on it, it is even more cool looking in real life.

Back from Typhoon and Delays

Hey guys, just want to let you know I'm back from Bangkok for business.  Typhoon signal was hoisted so all >200 planes were not able to land Hong Kong, my flight was diverted to Manila and the final flight time was 10 hours!  Yeah I know, this is not a good excuse for my delay in sending you my version of moly_x_10 :)

My target is to send out the album in 4 days, bear with me.

What do you see?

What do you see?

So I have this weird thing where the public perception of me is not AT ALL the same as my perception of myself. I am loud and gregarious and confident, but on the flip side I have very little confidence, I go quiet and introverted. So that's what my entry in my journal is about.

And it's with Kel and I wish it luck!

First journal entry is complete...

Moly - entry 1 006

... and on its way to Kel.

I finally committed and FINISHED my entry in my Moly (have to say, beautiful though they are and cool though they look, they're flippin' awkward to work in for someone with my level of clumsy!) and it will be going to Kel tomorrow (today?!)

More later when it's dry and I can photograph it properly!

Woohoo! They're on their way...

Well, today was posting day. Our flight was delayed, so I will have to send a day or two late (sorry Patrick!) If you haven't sent yours yet, photograph or scan your pages please - we want a peek! Hopefully everyone has the addresses they need, but if you aren't sure, please send your address to the person who sends to you. If you haven't taken a picture, maybe we should photograph our books as they arrive. Email to say your packet's on the way so that the recipient can watch out for it.

I always get nervous at sending on time, but just let your pen follow your heart. If you are happy with it, we will be happy with it.
