Hello Kathleen!
I know you're without a book, but I love the way you keep on chugging in everyone else's. You have such an amazing spirit and are still in the game when others would have dropped out long ago.  I'll be sending out this little drawing next week. Happy Holidays!

Anna Denise's Moly

Moly_x: My entry in Anna Denise's Moly

My contribution to Anna Denise's Moly - pen and ink with a touch of watercolour pencil.

Who would like this very lovely book next? (seriously lovely pieces, everyone!)

I sent Chris' Moly to Marina and after months it was returned to me so I am going to post it to her again this week.

Kathleen & Marina books

Just had a small idea I wanted to put out there. Kathleen and Marina had books disappear a long time ago and they have both stuck with our group and continued to make entries in our books as they have received them. I did not get the chance to make an entry in either book and would be happy to send a portrait to each of you.  I know some others have commented that they've not had books to make entries in for a long time. Perhaps this is a nice way to fill the gap, while certainly not required. I think I have updated email addresses if anyone's interested.

Anna's Book

Anna's Book, My Entry
Originally uploaded by 3MW

I promise, it only looks like I am plotting revenge on sweet Anna! Graphitint watercolor pencils and metallic paint pens.

The light in Anna's photo made everything so gold and lovely. And there I was, looking in the mirror and seeing lots of new silver hairs popping through.

This reminds me of the lovely childhood song :
"Make new friends, but keep the old.
One is silver and the other gold."

Who wants it next?

Status Update

Hi Friends-
Hope this post finds you all well. I'm logging in to let you know I've received Ann-D's book from Chris. Does anyone else have an update to share? Please remember to log in when you do. That momentum keeps us all going and gets those fingers itching to create something awesome. 

At this point, I need to kindly urge people that have had books for 3, 4, 7, 10 months to speak up. To be fair to the rest of the group, you need to email, reply, comment, whatever about the status of the book in your possession. There's no shame in being busy...but if you haven't touched a book in over six months - it's time to commit with a deadline or tell us that you need some time away. I will do my best to match your book up with the next waiting artist. And thank you to those who have been patiently waiting without a book for months. I apologize for not getting this message out sooner.

Thanks all!

P.S. Marty - can you let us know when the show books will be back in circulation and if you need my help getting them into new hands, I'd be happy to help!

Mustaches All Around

Hey Friends,

Here's my entry in Anna D's portrait book. This is a complete spinoff of what I usually make. It was very experimental and I was aggressive. I hope you like it Anna D. I'm very sorry it's late. There was a lot of thought and time put into this one. That and babies take a lot of time.

Also for those interested, I'm posting the hi-res to flickr. Just click into "Actions" then "View all Sizes" and select "Original".

A preview of Anna's book - in progress

I just wanted to pop in since I haven't posted in a while (except in comments). I've been rehashing this portrait for a while. This has been my most elaborate preparation. I finally worked up the courage to put my ink in Anna's book. I laid the lines in today. After the lines work dried I got bold and added the first layer of color. I've never done anything like the entry I'm working on in this book. And honestly, it tends to scare me (pottymouth!)-less. But this is why I love Moly_X so much. I'm constantly challenged to make something new.

Here's a taste of something new from me.
