I'm a little confused... I'm finishing up two Molies and I suddenly realised I have no idea who to send them to. One of the books came from Melissa, the other from Marty— should I send the Melissa one to Marty and the Marty one to Melissa?

Anna & Robin

Here is a better pic of Anna's moly now that the paint is dry and also with my self-portrait part added. This will be heading out to Chris this week. Who's next?

Shaken Up!

All this Moly_x shaking up has shaken me up and I've finally done my entry in Robin's book.  Sorry for the delay!  I know Marty loves a good up-side-down-under joke, so I hope Robin appreciates them too.  That's a bit of Emma's page on the left.  She is a hard act to follow!

Melissa and I + our "babies"

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.

Call for Entries

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.

Anna's Moly Portrait

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.
