Andrea strikes again

I decided to film the opening of Miguel's Moleskine bearing Andrea's latest contribution.

See it on Vimeo.
Or fast forward to the scan and a photo:

Unveiling secrets

The moment of truth is arrived (by mail) and now we finally know that Juj is actually a groundhog trainer. As this image clearly tells, Juj has some skilled contributors (will some of them become some day independent artists?)

On the next pic we can see better some face expression that makes me think the groundhog was negociating its fees.

Finally (and now seriously) a flat scan Judy sent to me in which we can see the fantastic drawing (see the fur) and the great idea of repeating Gabi's forest on the easel painting to continue the moley.

But I keep on wandering, who did the scan?
Is the idea really a Juj's idea?
Is it a portrait or a self portrait??

Good things come in small packages

I don't have a whole lot to say about this - the pictures speak for themselves. Gabi's contribution is absolutely amazing. Andrea, we could stop now and your moly would be platinum.

I will say it is sooooo much fun to see this work in real life. As amazing as it appears here, it is absolutely no comparison to the reality. I will also say that this particular moly is traveling with some nice surprises, but since no one else has mentioned them I've decided to let them be a surprise for the rest of you as well. Just something else to look forward to!

Finally, I've got to say it's so inspiring to have this work in my hands - my head is already buzzing with ideas - and I am honored and appreciative.

Now, without further ado:

"Little Green" is in the mail and "Mail" is here

Hola fellow moleskineXers. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to share France's goodness on Suzanne's "mail" moley. I just had too much moley action going on here. "Little Green" from Andrea is on its way to Judi now. Give the pix a good click to enjoy France's beautiful line work and commentary.

still unfolding

Miguel's Moley has left the building. I adore this view of it. All those colours working in harmony. Anyway, chums, I'm sorry for holding stuff up at this bit of the chain. I am the weakest link. Goodbye.
