New Adress

Hello everyone, hope things are good all around. I moved all my worldly belongings today and have a new address. It is
550 Jefferson Ave
Brooklyn NY 11221
The above image, ill admit, doesnt exactly have a ton to do with packing and moving, but hes in the process of motion, and im away from any scanning i raided an old moleskine drawing...cuz a post needs an image, in my world.
(PS Sorry for the repeat message to those of you in my other blogs)

I said I wouldn't send them both at once, but...

Despite what I said, I put the two Molys in the post yesterday to Pamela... look out for them.
I have just scored myself a job! Yeah! So the moleskine barrage will be more one at a time next time. This is Yellbroad's Moleskine. Sully has a silver background, which didn't scan well.

2 down 1 to go in Emma's moly!

Getting a bit worried that Emma will be sending me another "TWO" moly's in the post shortly!
so I am trying to get mine and Emma's finished and in the post to Jan.....before I have a huge pile of everybody's moly's, arriving all at once on my doorstep!

Lynne's Moly, finally done

So, I have two of these moleskines in my posession, the other, yellbroad's... well it is almost done too, but I thought I would share this one with you, before I post the other. I will probably send them off together.

Second Round

These are my entries in Ekaterina's Moleskine. She has those excellent gallant cavaliers and i started out trying to stay in that world. Then i wound up leaving that world.

I found out a few days ago that Im moving again-2008 has seen me in Harlem, Queens and now Brooklyn. Ill make sure to change my address when I know what the new one is.
Hectic times in the year of the Rat!

I finished mine!

I'm so so excited about this swap, and I just know that everyone will be doing amazing things in my book. Just watching all of your books come together has been really inspiring!

So here's my book:

The front and back cover. Feathers just don't scan well! It really looks lovely in person.

This was the first spread I finished, and I love how the layers worked together. I did the word page a little bit differently, playing off of the typical bird identification book.

She was a TON of fun to do, and my family really loves her boldness.

This is the only bird I did that isn't made up. I thought the crossbill was such an unusual bird, though, that it would fit in well with my other fantasy fowl.

This is my signature page. I cut out enough eggs (that sit in the pocket at the back of the book) for everyone to write their info on! I think its a fun play on the pocket use.

Here's the template on each of the pages for you guys to use. You have **complete** liberty to work outside of the lines - I just hope having them there will help you know where the head meets the body meets the legs for future cutting. :)

I'll try to get this out in the mail in the next couple of days!

It's Done and on it's way

Well, firstly here's my cover. Now you can see why I'm asking you to add something to the cover as well. Such a dodgy job on the printing here! Please go crazy on it!
I decided to go with cards - actually that happens a lot to me...
I put my 2nd and 3rd pages randomly throughout the book. Put yours anywhere you like.
I had a bit of trouble with my white paint so I left it out in this one. I actually forgot to sign them - but it doesn't matter because it's me - and this made me think to say that I really want you to sign your drawings in the book, not just the sign-in page please.
My sign-in page is done like a library book. Please put your details on the card and add a date stamp and/or any thing you like to enhance it's borrowed-many-times look.
It's already in the mail to you Yoda!
