"Here's looking at you Kidd!" Emma, I am sure you have never heard that one. It seemed fitting after the grape stomping to enjoy the fruits of your labor. This book is looking awesome by the way. Very full. There are only a couple pages left so someone will have to add some pages.
You all have a blessed and safe New Year!

As we move into what is, for many of us, the most
Thanks everyone for the amazing contributions we've seen so far.

My entry in Robin's moly, incorporating the paint splotches left by Jan :)
I also have RebelPapa's moleskine here - I had to go away for a while before I could send it and mislaid the name and address of the next person. I apologise. Please let me know who would like these books next and I will send them this week.

I finished up Lisa's book today. I've been experimenting with water soluble graphite lately and this book seemed to fit in well with that. Robin's entry before mine was a large facial spread in pencil. I'm pretty happy overall with my painting of Lisa, not so much of myself. I would have preferred to leave myself out completely! Maybe I just need more self portrait practice. It was difficult to even find a picture of myself. But rules are rules :D
I hope you like it Lisa. Oh also, this is just a snap taken with my iPhone. I'll scan a hi-res image tomorrow and post it to flickr.
Edit: I added the scanned image.

Marty, please, remind me - what song are we performing right now?

So exciting to see these book flying all over again. Let's keep the momentum going. As always, let me know if anything on the chart needs fixing. Jan I think I assumed you were sending Robin's on to Kathleen. Let me know if I'm wrong.

First of all - sorry for the delay, but here it comes! I passed through a lot of Melissa's photos and found her photographed together with her daughter many times. The postures looked so familiar to me, and I found one picture of myself together with my "baby" that looked very similar.
Don't moms and their children look similar over the world?
Melissa, I hope you liked our group portrait.

I am thrilled that moly_x will be exhibiting at Minnesota Center of Book Arts (MCBA), between mid-January through March 2011. It's coming up! This is a great venue, and this exhibit could mean some wonderful opportunities for other exhibitions around the country, and possible grants. This is a very receptive community.
I would like a few of the great portrait books from this group. These books do not have to be completed. If you have a book right now would you consider sending it to me next. It will be out of circulation through March, but it will get some wonderful attention. I will guarantee it's safe return, or delivery to the next artist on the list.
MCBA does a great job of documenting their shows, so you will have a nice record. Whoever is in the book may add another credit to her/his resumé. We will continue to look for other similar venues for moly_x exhibitions. There are many book art institutions like this around the country, and there are many university book arts, and illustration programs.
I have dreamed of this exhibit since we started this little project. I would like to get 2 or 3 portrait books from this group.
Thanks for you help.

At long last... I have finally done my entry for Anna's book. I apologize for the amount of time it took me to get this turned around. As with most things, it only took one evening to do it, its just a matter of moving it to the front of the line.
This is done in oils so I need to give it another couple weeks to dry. I did spend a little time awhile back testing this because I didn't want to do oils in her book and find out that it doesn't work. The paper actually took the oil pretty well. I was pleasantly surprised. I have been doing a lot of my other work in oils lately so i wanted to give it a shot and I'm glad I did. So, one more down. I will pass this off to Chris in a couple weeks.

When my husband asked what I wanted for mother's day I told him that I wanted time to draw Chris's face. Mission Accomplished and a very happy mother's day to the moms in the group. Chris, hope you don't mind me swiping this pic from your facebook set.

This should lay to rest the tiresome southern hemisphere jokes. This is the last, Emma, I promise.
If you look a little dirty faced, Emma, I apologize for that as well. You all know how tough it can be to work with water media in these books. I have embraced it, though, and have grown to embrace the accidents that always occur. I hope you will accept that excuse, and enjoy the picture.
Off to Samantha.

Hello dear group!
Here I put my entry into Zaza's book (in progress).
Since Samantha enjoys tea and I've recently become a coffee addict-I decided to depict her in tea leaves and myself- in coffee beans.
I'm off to continue... (=

I am now in possession of Anna's, Christopher's, Olya's, and Yoda's molys. Now the big question...
Who wants them?? The next person who was originally supposed to receive them? Or just send the out to whom ever is ready to draw in a book?

Melissa and Jan hanging out in Paris with matching scarves. I've superimposed Lisa's previous entry so you can get the idea of the sequence (and because starting from scratch in the middle of the book is a tad overwhelming). J'espère que vous l'aimez.

I look a little frumpy, but hey, as long as Melissa looks ok, that's all I care about. Very cheeky.
I have an idea for Robin, he won't be completely monsterised.

So I have noticed with the Portraits I need to work like I did when I used to do life drawing, fast and not thinking too much, and generally, I have a better attitude to it, and I am much happier with the result.
Here is the first of the three I have. Marty as a raccoon style monster. I am very happy with his expression.
