Gambling snails

I always feel that opening the packs that come from Kansas City is worth the length of the wait.
In this case it took 20 days (maybe the moley was carried by a snail to continue on topic).

Juj's art makes me always think of intelligence and smartness and this is not an exception.

As you see this moley seems a joyful tribute to Andrea's art.

Seems like those albums with songs of an artist sung by other artists in which each version keeps the art of both.

There are blendings here rather than the usual transitions.
Touring over the pages is a never ending surprise, they are full of little secrets, writings, pieces of stories and living episodes.

PS: Do you like the table? My father made it in the 70's. He worked all sunday mornings for more than one year. (Excuse me please me for the intrusion but I'm too proud).

Thank you France (& co.)

Thank you all for your kind comments, and thank you France for your drawings.
I tried this little joke (you were right, estaba bromeando) because I've been always jealous of your portraits and your amazing technique but as everybody can see... you're inimitable! (actually, Q.E.D.).
I used some Pigma Microns and a Copic Drawing pen for the blacks and a Faber Castell OHP-PLUS 1523 for the green. Here is the flat scan I made before sending.

france on paper

Are you ready to see Miguel's unbelievable contribution to France's Moleskine?

Are you really, really ready?

Perhaps you should sit down for this.


Ok, here goes...

Isn't she lovely?

Pray for me. I have to draw next to this.

Bamboo frog has some reading to do

After much procrastinating I'm finally posting France's fabulous follow up to Andrea's pages on Miguel's moley. Let me guess, I think France likes Paul Auster. This moley, by the way, is the second on my desk waiting for my own contribution. The pressure!
