When I was 9 years old

I've got more work to do, but here is a start:)

Almost ready!

My entry is just about theme is Guilty Pleasures and/or Crimes of Art. I was trying to keep it open-ended, so you can interpret it however loosely you want. And I wanted an excuse to draw some cake, my personal guilty pleasure. :)
In the next couple days, it will be on its way to you, Lynne!

It's off!!!

My first moly to be sent out on a journey! Its coming to Oregon! Keep an eye out!

I quickly designed a new header for us that included our artwork. Hopefully everyone likes it. If one of you would like to make a better one feel free to do so and replace the current one. How is everyone doing on theirs?

Hooked up!

Hi Gang. Welcome to moly_x!

The moly_x_38 blog is now linked at the bottom of the moly_x flickr site. I have added a few features to the blog to make it consistent with the other blogs. I added a list of "Beloved Links" which I hope y'all will add to. I added "THE NETWORK" so y'all can get from on blog to the next with relative ease. That's it.

Have fun!

just a little pic to start the blog :-)
Thanks Michael this is going to be a great group :-)


This group, founded by Michael Nightmare (USA), is an extension of the Moleskine Exchange. This blog will follow the adventure of a group of artists around the world, in a Japanese fold Moleskine sketchbook exchange.

Each artist will set off with a small Japanese (accordian) folded Moleskine. Creating a drawing, collage, or painting, then send on to the next artist. Each artist will draw on a couple of spreads (3-4 pages) then send it on to the next artist. When the artists book is filled, it will be returned to the owner with images created by artist around the world. Each artist has a month to make an entry. The outcome will be a pleasant and surprising adventure, as artists are encouraged to interact and merge their art with others.

The concept:

1. The artists start with the Japanese fold Moleskine - Name, address, email address written in book.

2. Each artist gets 1 month to make a sketchbook entry, and mail it to the next person. The order is listed to the right.

3. Each artist will do 3-4 pages each round.

4. Artists are encouraged to interact with other images in the book. Please be respectful.

5. When the book is full, when one side of the unfolded book is filled, the book will be sent back to its original owner. That artist may continue by buying a new book and sending it to the next person.

6. If a person decides not to continue, she will simply keep her book when it comes back to her. She should email all of the participants to say she is not going to continue. We will decide, then, if we want to find a new person.

7. Please communicate regularly via email. Let each person know that you have received/sent the book. The goal is to have a dialogue. Any comments and questions are welcome.
