Where are the books?

Do we know who all currently has books? I was just wondering so I could try and guess as to when I would get a book next.

also, when I mailed mine out, I put two little pieces of the scrapbook paper I used in my entry in the back in case anyone wanted to use it in an entry later on somehow. Happy drawing everyone!

My entry in my book is finally finished. I made a little goof when I made a sign in page and had some marker bleed onto the first page so I opted to patch my error with scrapbook paper, luckily I had some handy that worked out so well for what I was going for.

Self Portrait Entry for My Moleskine

I'm happy with how it turned out given the circumstances, and cannot wait to get my next book! This one will be off to Tim tomorrow!

Why is it that I finally have a big desire to draw and my art supplies are NOWHERE to be found?! Urgh!!

Danica's Moly

I got Danica's moly today! Haven't had anyone's notebook this whole time and now I have two!

I'm surprised this isn't done yet, but I got absolutely swamped with clients needing rush design and print jobs so there hasn't been too much sleep for me lately.

Being busy with work is too good to complain about though, so no more excuses here is a progress shot, I have to fix some issues yet (lips!) before I do anything more with it, and then it will be well on its way to being done and sent on!

Moly_X_Portrait2 - "Delivered to your door"

Dear friends of Moly_x2, from now on whenever a new post is made on the blog, all people will be automatically alerted by e-mail. This will help us to keep us updated in real time and can see and comment about what is being done in the books.I did not add the Anna's e-mail  for a while, but I asked her by Flickr Mail.Please to make sure it is working properly, enter the blog and comment on this post.

PS. Now we also have there in the right column the "lables" with which we mark the posts, it helps a lot in time to get an older post.
Thank you all, I'm very excited to start this exchange.

Just got my Moly, and I must say I am impressed with how small it actually is! I haven't used a Japanese Moleskine before but I am already in love with it...

I'll be sure to update with some progress as I work on my self portrait, while you all are waiting here is a photo of me to spark some ideas:

There are a couple others on my Flickr page and I will include some with my book as well. I'm pretty excited to start my entry!

Little Update

Hi, Everyone. I just wanted to let you know that I received Robert's moly and will post pics when I'm finished. Until then, here is some self portrait inspiration courtesy of Rembrandt.

Nice to meet You !

Hi friends from MolyXportrait2
My name is Claudio Ramires, I was born in southern Brasil (Rio Grande do Sul on the Pampas region) but I live in São Paulo, the largest, exciting and chaotic city in South America.
I worked many years as an illustrator, art director and graphic designer, currently divide my time between painting and planing  virtual interfaces for Internet, television and mobile devices in a big company ...
In painting I have been passionately devoted to Acrylics, "the most rebellious of paintings" :-)
I'm participating in other 3 Moleskine Exchanges groups (34, 54 and Portrait4).
I love this project, it has helped me to grow as an artist, to expand my world view and to make new friends in many places, I think we're there to have fun, but "to fun it's a serious subject" :-)
I'm waiting impatiently for a new moleskine order from Amazon to work here...
It will be a great pleasure to interact with so many talented people that I've seen here. Thank you all.
My Flickr and my Blog  . (sorry for my English :-P) The image here shows some self portraits fragments traveling around the world on board of little black books

work in progress

I worked on the weekend on my self protrait. I make some images of the process. You can check them on my flickr. I realized that I made a mistake: I started onthe 3rd and 4th page instead of the 1st and 2nd. I have to think what to do with them.
By the way what information should come in the Moleskine?
The other question I have is which Moleskine would I become next?
