there'll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow

Well, guess who turned up on my doormat last week? Only my little Green Moleskine. Yes, folks, the traveller has returned. After backpacking around the world for three years one might have thought he'd look a little dishevelled but, no, he's looking gorgeous. AND, he came bearing gifts. Not only a back pocket full of little souvenirs from his travels, but some of the most beautiful drawings I've ever clapped eyes on. I'm so touched to finally have him home, I don't know that I'll ever be able to let him go again (and, let's face it, if I do it could be another twenty years before he returns).

Anyways, below is a little teaser of Suzanne's contribution. Thank you, Suzanne. Thank you all. I'll post more photos shortly.

Didn't we miss your smiling face?

This is the scan I made before Suzanne's moley should start its last after traveling around the world.
Lucky Suzanne, she's got it back! Isn't it nice to be home again?

something is in the air

Contrary to the last post's title, I 'don't rock'...I stink! Here's a confession. I've been keeping a moleskine hostage for days ... weeks ...a long, long time! You see, my mail-themed moly made it around the world and back to me quite some time ago...but, I haven't posted it until now. I was keeping it all to myself.

something is in the air

Perhaps you can understand why.

It's like that the bite of dessert, simply too good to share! Miguel, when are you going to stop blowing my socks off? You're incredible...and you're in good company. I am SOOOO pleased with my moly.

Many thanks to each of you for sharing your talents with me!

Suzanne Rocks (again)

Yikes. Now I have two.

So finally, I'm getting around to posting this. I've had it for some time now, but, when I was packing stuff for the move that hasn't actually happened (a long story) I filed away my camera's USB lead safely. And, well, yeah, I couldn't find it. Until now.

So, here she is. Suzanne in France's Moley. I often feel like I'm repeating myself, at this point, so I'll try not to. Just one thing, Suzanne, how can you be so cool? I can't tell you how much I'd love to draw like this.

On the back Suzanne says "The connection between France and money may appear random but I assure you it isn't. This is the cash we're saving in hopes to travel, see the world and visit our Moly friends." But, that's not right, WE are coming to see YOU! I'm saving up right now. Well, I say saving, but I actually mean hoping for a lottery win.
(I don't know if I chose the best photos, here, but trying to choose from about a hundred is an impossible task. I'll put more on Flickr soon.)

Green again for "Little Green"

Hi all. Seems Andrea will have a funny moly full with differents kinds of imitations of her style. (When I wrote imitations, you should read tributes).
This was at home for more than a month waiting for me to start drawing. I made it in the last days of the past year, and finished january the 1st. Here is my work diary (written on the back).

bamboo frog's cousin

Can I just let you know how incredibly lucky I feel to have these beautiful Moleskines pass through my hands? Really...

Miguel, I continue to be awed.

Andrea, look at the Moleskine you're getting!!!!

And this one smells good too! What an added bonus.
