arrived in Abu Dhabi

hello everybody!

It is almost a week I´m here. it is a diferent place and I stil have to adjust myself. Th only bad news is that Flickr is blocked in UAE so if you were wondering why I wasn´t posting anything in Flickr that is the reason.
That means that I have two problems regarding moly exchange..
1.-I can respond any flickr mail (but I can read if u write me)
2.-I can see any pictures you have there for the portraits.

that is not something that can't be solve but I think u should be aware of it. I´m trying in the meantime to download some add ons for mozilla firefox to avoid the censorship of the site. but I still haven´t find anything. If someone can write to flickr and ask if the know a solution would be very gratefull.

I keep following the news from our blog.Have a nice day everybody!

Dana's moly - finished?

So, I threw some ink at Dana's book tonight and am reasonably happy with it.

I dig how we look like some kind of oddball buddy team like Mulder and Scully or something.

However, I'm debating whether to add anything into the background. I was thinking of continuing the background color she used in her opening portrait somehow. I made a couple quick mockups in photoshop and would love to hear your thoughts:

I like this last one but I'm not sure if I could pull it off in the book without trashing the sketch. I'll probably just leave it alone...unless you all talk me into it!

Tim's book

So, I joined this group way back in October 2008, didn't contribute anything until March 2009 and never started my own book at all! I've had this moly since around that time and even had a rough sketch in it for at least a year. But for whatever reason I never got around to completing it. Ever since we got this group re-booted in January though I've wanted to give it another shot and finally pushed myself to do it this week.

I was inspired by Ramires' awesome paintings for some of the other moly_x groups to try this little painting. It's the first time I've used acrylics in one of these books and I'm pretty happy with the results. As you may or may not know I'm big-time skier...I raced in high-school and college and have been instructing and coaching for over 15 years so this portrait is me in my element.

I'm going to finish up Dana's moly this week and send both of these off to Ramires soon. Hope you're ready for 'em, Claudio!

Ramires Moly on his way to Danica

Dana's moly - work in progress

I started working on Dana's moly tonight. I don't think I've really captured her expression from this great photo on her flickr page but there's lots of work still to be done on it.

Ramires Moly

So here is the image. I was following Ramires Bubble idea and try to make something that looks like a dream.. or irreal. I worked with colour pencils and sepia pitt pen in order give continuety to Ramires drawing. I also extended a litte to the right and left page to make the transition smoother.. I will try to send it to Danica as soon a possible (probably tomorrow morning) the address is the same, isn't it Danica?

Heidi's moly arrive today

The book is here in my hands sound and safe.

Just finished Ramires Moly

Hi Í just finished today Ramires Moly..I usually don´t work so fast , but I had this idea for a long time. I even made some sketches before becomming the Moli (then I lost the sketches ) Anyway I had a clear idea what I wanted to do. Plus I was inform today that I have to travel to Abu Dhabi to work there for 2 months.. I have to leave next week. so I worked quite fast and fineshed the Moly cause I want to send the MolY to Danica before leaving Catania. So I going to havea new address for the next two months. I hope it is not a problem in order to be still part of the MolY group. the only thing is that u should ask me first before sending the next Moly to Abu Dhabi cause I´m going to be there for just 2 months. (I think a package should arive in 3 weeks . the post service is more secure than in Italy). I will scan the Molly tomorrow from my office, I guess everybody want to see it.
Ah Ramires.. should I write my name somewhere?
