Done my sign-in, soon the rest...

Kind of a bad photo, but, this is the closest I get to a scanner at the moment (still packed in a box at the back of a container no doubt)... so this is my sign in page. I have finished one of my other pieces, but not to be seen until they are all done.

Finally finished

I think I have to send it to Josh Burggraf. Is it right?

Got it! Finally!

Took awhile, and I will probably be starting my idea in the plane, but I have my moleskine!
Yeah! I love what I have seen so far, just wonderful.

My little friends

They took me quite some time but I like how they look :)

I hope you all like them

Lynne's book

These are my three characters on Lynne's book. I hope you like them, I've made my best.
I'm ready to send this one and mine to Emma, a long trip to the antipodes.

Work in progress

Hi everyone!
I would like to see not only finished drawings, but also “Work in progress”.
Just to keep this blog alive. Is it Ok?

I have just first preliminary drawing for my own book. My inspiration was Russian Lubok – old folk woodcut prints.

Moly help

Hey there,
I've been waiting forever for my came and it's not the right one! Which kind did we finally decide on? Is it the Moleskine Plain Cahier Journal..the last 16 pages re detachable (it's 64 pages)...or something else?

Also, in the instructions it says– Each artist will do 3 pages. The artwork is to be on the right hand page, with the back left for text etc....

I'm a little confused by the "back left"'s just three spreads with the text on the left hand side and the images on the right, right?

I'm sorry for my confusion and I know you must have discussed this already, but one more thing! :) Do I need to count out the pages or do I just randomly decide where my three spreads will be? I'm assuming the first spread will be in the beginning of the book, skipping the first page?

thanks for your help

exquisite corpses

I have finished my first exquisite corpse... I didn't cut the pages, as some of you have told, and the joint of three pieces are not so good. Now I must add the signing pages at the back pocket and it will be ready to travel to Emma.

Have a nice Sunday!! : ))

Down to 13

Hi all,
Unfortunately Megan has notified she has to withdraw from the exchange. This means we are down to 13 contributors. On the up side it also means we have a few extra pages to play around with.

An idea

Hello everyone,

First of all, wonderful work so far!
So normally I would have each artist write on the backs of their entries their names, when they completed their piece and what materials they used, along with a little something about themselves that they want to share. Since it seems as though this isn't possible in this exchange, I'd like to put little cards in the pocket of my Moly for this purpose. I figure since we are only doing one round, one card per artist will work. How does this sound to everyone? I will have a card for myself in there as an example. I also want everyone to sign their work, so years and years later I can look at the book and say, "Oh yes, this one is Lisa's and that's Emma's". I find what we are doing to be quite special, and I just like to have a little information about all the wonderful people that are a part of it :)

exquisitely my first three

Here are my first three pages..... I realise now the figure on my first spread is off-centre but I don't mind that.... I am not going to worry.... I am looking forward to sending this out to you Lynne. Have a good weekend everyone.

The Order of Rotation

I've just had it pointed out to me that the order of rotation on the sidebar here is reversed! Has anyone sent a book on yet? The pdf of the list that I sent you all was exactly the reverse of what is here. How do you think you can cope with posting to the person above you on the list - not below you???

getting mail

How many of you get notifications of new postings and comments...? I have put our addresses into the email box on settings.... its just that if we use the c box we don't get notification of comments. using the blog for our questions etc would keep everyone in touch.....and keep the blog lively. I have been looking through the older blogs, there are a lot dying through lack of communication, a couple havent even taken off at all :-(

Pages question

Hello dear all.

I have this problem:

I counted the pages of my moly and I noticed there is one page less. Thing is, if I make my three drawings one of you will only have the chance to make 2 instead of three of yours. I don't mind making just two so all of you have the chance to make your three.

What do you all think about?

my pages....

I am leaving them uncut ( for the moment ) I may change my mind, but I am concerned that after being through 13 hands they may get a bit fragile....what are every one elses thoughts on cutting?

Introduction - Katya=k239=Ekaterina

About me – I am Russian but now live in Los Angeles. My English is not good enough because I am still learning. I will make mistakes – please have mercy. I am a potter and a printmaker. I like etching and linocut but now I take screen-printing classes at local college. We have very good screen printing program at Pasadena City College. We print T-shirts, posters, stickers, decals; sometimes I print directly in my moleskine. I am already in two Moleskine Exchange Groups(Moly_x_11 and Moly_x_17) and now sign for two more (“Exquisite Corpse” and “Monsters” exchanges).

I bought two new Moleskines for Moly-X-46(Japanese Album) and Moly-X-48(small sketchbook). I have printed both covers with my signature monster. And I also start to print Halloween monsters in my “Monsters”Moly.
