a few things about me

Ciao Ragazzi,

My name is Omar Jaramillo Traverso. I come from Guayaquil, Ecuador. I lived 8 years in Kassel, Germany. Since 2007 I live in Catania Sicily, where I work as a landscape architect. (I studyed architecture in Ecuador and Germany). I like to sketch and paint with watercolours. But also use other tools.

I'm also an urbansketcher, you can find my post with the tag Omar Jaramillo in

other sites where you can see my work and a few things about me:

This Moly_x is new to me and at first I will be depending on your advise and experience. I have seen your work in the Moleskines, and I'm very happy to be part of such a creative group!

Hello group!

Hi everyone!

My name is Dana Bower and I am very excited to be joining your MolyX group! I've been interested in MolyX for awhile now after seeing entries in books tagged and displayed throughout fickr but was never in a position to really dive into one myself.

I am a recent college graduate from Bowling Green State University. I received my Bachelor's of Science in Technology in August, my major was Visual Commication Technology. After graduating, I began doing graphic design work under my own company (which is still developing along nicely!) and I just turned 22 years old yesterday! I've been wanting to do traditional work now more than ever as I have gotten away from it a bit throughout college. I figured now is the time, and I hope to grow enough so that I can incorporate illustration into my company's business plan.

I look forward to learning more about everyone and learning what MolyX is really all about!

Let me introduce myself :)

Hi guys,
I'm so glad to be here, because i've been looking for a group to join molyX for months:) Well, I'm Danica and I am a student of architecture. I am from Slovakia so i hope it won't be a problem for moly to travel over the ocean. I hope we'll get to know better!

And sorry for my english, it is not perfect but i am still learning ;)

Now recruiting (and status update)

I just posted a recruiting topic to the flickrgroup to see if we can get some energy back in our group. Prior to that I posted on one of the other threads where folks were looking to join a group and I'd like to welcome our newest member, Danica!

I added her in between myself and Suzette. So, Robert's moly is going to Suzette and Heidi's will go to Danica when it's ready (hopefully by the end of the week). After that I think I'll finally start my own book and get it rolling...hopefully to our next new member.

So, what's everyone else got cooking? Any other books out there? Please comment on this post and let everyone know what's going on. Thanks.

Robert's Moly finished and ready to fly!

Spent the last few nights working on Robert's moly (don't worry Heidi, I'll get back to yours soon!) and it's all finished and ready to go...but to who? (Tiffany, are you still in? I don't remember seeing anything from you on the blog.) If I don't hear from Tiffany I think I'll send this on to Suzette, I know she's been moly-less for a long time now.

I thought I'd try a different technique with this one and have always loved France Belleville's drawings. So, this is my Ode to France. I'm not really happy with Robert's portrait...I think I screwed up the proportions in the underlying drawing and was well into the crosshatching before I realized it. Mine came out a bit better but the sunglasses hide the toughest parts.

Fun fact: In the photos I worked from Robert is standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon and in mine I'm on a mountain opposite Breckenridge, CO.
