We can forgive him the long wait: the joy's worth it!
Maybe this little guy was scared about the long run he has yet to do
(I love this lettering!)
Hey Juj, do you see into the future?
How did you know that this japanese-folded leaf would make the road from Kansas City to Bologna at turtle speed? (Wait some days till Fabio's drawing for Sophie arrives and you'll see even more prediction mysteries!)
Now seriously, a flat scan of Juj's fantastic drawing with that half coloring I love so much, and her amazing, freaky, smart, unique point of view (literally i this case) I love even more.

I couldn't resist to do something with Andrea's mileage research. After doing this I realized how lucky I got having to send my moly to JuJ's, who lives pretty much in my backyard, only 1,860 miles away, compared to most of you who send yours on transatlantic journeys. I wonder if we should alter the order in the future so noone gets always stuck with paying for overseas shipping. And that way our drawings will also get to mingle with drawings that before were a few folds away. And now the more urgent and important question: where in the world is Juj's moly?

Oh, and one observation I will have; these little Japanese Moleskines are bugger to draw in. Don't you agree?
(I was kicking around some ideas for Suzanne's theme here. It will look NOTHING like this.)

This, I'm sure you'll agree, is classic SB. Cool, stylish and fun. A great theme too. I can't wait to start drawing in it. I'm just going to pluck up the courage first. Oh, and because I'm as obsessive with a camera as I am with a pen you can see much more of Suzanne's Moley HERE.

(flat scan sent by Gabi:click to enlarge)
Gabi's moleskine made it's way to my house in record time, and look how fabulous it is! It's such a treat to be able to see his work in real life without the filter of the web. My favorite part (besides the fabulous lines and colors) is the "draw bridge". Is that a command? or a description? lol! and the "this is not my car" - so funny! Now the hard part - figuring out what to draw. I think I'll just spend a few days making friends with it first.

Here's the scanned version. Trying to imitate the real colors of the drawn frog, I don't know how the letters became green (like Andrea's theme ;-). Some days ago I used to open and close the moly, now I use to open and close the mailbox...
