Heidi's Moly.

Alright, here's a progress shot but I have began to color Heidi's Moly.

Not going to lie, this was a very intimidating book to work in. All the entries leading up to mine were done in pencil only and very beautiful. I began mine in pencil telling myself maybe I should add minimal color but I got out my markers and gave it a shot.

Unfortunately the color I tried to use for my skin didn't quite turn out well. Not sure if it is running out or not but it was streaky, and darker than I wanted. I always color test my markers on a piece of paper so I know what to expect but I consistently forget that the moleskine paper is much different.

I'll work with it a bit more and it'll be sent out on Friday at the latest.

Hi guys, I start sketching some ideas for the portrait of Nicole. I still don't have the book, but I prefer to think now before I get the book, that way I will win some time. At the same time is a way to avoid feeling detach from the Molly exchange. Drawing Nicole is not an easy task. I found a lot of wedding fotos where she looks wonderful, but to fit in the book I have to invent another story. The diffcult part with this portrait exchange is the selfportrait, you get tired with the time. I guess I will try to hide myself in the picture and people should find me.
By the way I would like to ask if Heidi could you send me Danicas Molly? I know that I am the last in the row. But I will like to finish my last portrait. I have done many months ago a beautiful sketch of our portraits and I will like to do it in the Moleskine before I get more complicate in my life again. I promise to the group be fast a give to the next one inmeadiatly. What you say?

The postman visited me today!!

It is a beautiful and challenging book, I will strive to maintain the high level.
I've seen this in Minneapolis, but I do not tire of saying how beautiful is the work of Nicole, and Tim was also lovely. I love the idea of the book on the table to make small doodles.
Thanks for the gift Tim :-))))
Hi guys,
I have no book, or sketches to share with you, but I want you to notice this project:


Do you know about it? It looks wonderful. Based on your portfolio, they may accept you as an illustrator for iPad, iPhone e-books. You can choose a story/novel to illustrate and work as fast as you want. In the end, they will publish it and you'll get 50% of the income.
As soon as I'll have time, I will send them my portfolio. Im sure some books with your illustration would be cool too ;)

In my way to Canada I'm spending 1 week in Germany. I am doing some drawings of the ballet company of the Staatstheater in Hanover.
I'm getting a little bored without a book. I had already done an sketch for Danica's Molly... I waiting for months for that book.... I would love to do it in acrylic again... it is a surealistic image...and I really happy with the idea. ...I will start thinking in Nicole's book as soon as I arrive in Canada. Hey, Nicole! maybe I can meet you when I'm in Canada.
Anybody knows when we get Roberts book back from the exhibition?
