MolyXers in Minnesota!

I had a wonderful time in Minnesota over the last few days with Claudio and Marty Harris (our gracious host and the founder of our incredible project). It was a bit surreal meeting these guys for the first time, yet knowing them so well from was much more like seeing old friends rather than people I’d never met in the flesh before.

Talkin’ Moly_X with Marty at MCBA

Last night we had a wonderful Q&A session with Roz Stendhal’s Visual Journal Collective at the Moly_X exhibit at Minnesota Center for Book Arts. The ladies were all very enthusiastic and several have already expressed interest in joining the fun.

Working on Nicole’s book at Marty’s house with Claudio

Sadly I was not able to finish Nicole’s book in time to send it off with Claudio today (Too much fun with ‘The Band’ as Claudio was calling us). But I will get it done before I skip town.

I encourage anyone within driving distance of Minneaopolis to try and stop by the MCBA show before it comes down on March 6th. It’s truly inspiring to see so many of these amazing books up together at once.

oh Yes, we had a great time, Tim is a fantastic person and I agree about what he said "it was much more like seeing old friends rather than people I’d never met in the flesh before..."
Same about Marty, and the impression I had about his genius has only increased.

This Q & A was excellent because we had the opportunity to speak to a group of talented artists some about of the joys and sorrows of the project, its wonders and things do not happen very well at times, Tim and I used the good example of the Robert's book what one month before the show ran for three continents where he received new entries. Moly X is simple and easy to do, just need our enthusiasm.
