Barbara's book

Moly_x_3 Barbara's book1
Here are the entry for Barbara's book.

As mentioned yesterday, I had a lot of trouble finding the right motive. I ended up with a dragon inspired by the Norwegian stave church (Wikipedia) On it's back it has a girl. She is playing the flute. The clouds are super iridescent, do not show up in the photo though.

Progress so far in the book.

Medium used: pencil, permanent marker, velvet decorative tape, promarkers, gel pen, iridescent watercolours and acrylic paint.

Barbara's book - sketch

Moly_x_3 Barbara's book - sketch
I had a lot of trouble finding the right motive, Jennifer's cat is such a strong statement. I think I have tried out 8 or 9 different things before I found something that I though would work. This is my final sketch. I'll go make the actually entry now.

Work in progress: Niniji's book

Hey all! I took out Niniji's book today and put on her Luna Sea soundtrack. Played it from start to finish...and sketched out my idea of a mysterious Luna Sea.




A smiling octopus, floating cherry blossoms, and very strange seaweed plants! Deciding how I'm going to tackle this image now with colours. I will post pictures when I'm done.

Happy Easter everyone!

Leaving for Australia

OK. Here's EWian's sketchbook getting ready to leave for Australia. I ended up just adding various doodles, pretty much using the sketchbook as if it was my own. This one is going directly to Karena, I'm so happy that she's back in the loop.

Voila, I'll try to go to the post office during lunch.

Finished & ready to pass on!

Hi all! I'm sorry I'm so behind with finishing up Olivier's moleskine. On top of having a busy workload, I've been having trouble with my eyes for the last few months, so any chance I get to rest them rather than draw/paint/sit-at-the-computer, I've been taking.

I'm unsure who gets this next, so if someone could please contact me & let me know, that would be much appreciated. I also have my own moleskine that I have to send to someone. I'll get that done asap & send it to whoever is supposed to get it!

I hope I haven't caused too much inconvenience!!!

PS. I don't use Blogger & just had a devil of a time trying to get my pic the right size.

Work in Progress: Mathilda

I thought I'd post a quick update. We had a beautiful day in Santa Monica today, so I sneaked out of the office early (well, let's just say I never came back from lunch) and sat in the sun all afternoon, reading and sketching on a number of sketchbooks, including Ewian's Waltzing Mathilda.

book on the move

Just a quick note that I mailed Niniji's book, reunited with her playlist to Australia last week. I forgot to take pictures, but I ended making a few little changes as well. I guess it'll be a surprise.

Right now, and unless we hear back from Karena (magic jelly) I'm passing her over and sending the books directly to Helena (little mo & friends). I'm still trying to decide if I should create a new sketchbook for myself and send it along or assume that Karena will eventually re-appear and send it along for the rest of its journey around the world.


p.s. I've started working on Ewian and the other book in my possession, and will probably send both of them along shortly.
