Lee's Moly

I just completed my contribution this month to Lee's Moly and now it's on the way to Lisa. The Hawaii idea intrigued me, so I decided to keep with that and printed out some of my previous beach sketches for reference. I included some little critters too, to tie into Lee's wonderfully playful motif.

I've been experimenting a bit with how to best add color to this paper (blogged about that here). Last time I used watercolor pencils, but this time I combined those with regular Prismacolor colored pencils of which I have many. I think I prefer the results with watercolor pencils alone: I'll go back to that next time.

Selfportrait ready to go out!

Lisa´s Moly_x_20
Finally I´m done with Lisa´s Moleskine.
Sometimes I have difficulties with self portraits (specially those showing teeth), then I don´t know how to use pencils for drawing (except for outlines). And the biggest difficulty: Lisa had left out the first set of pages by mistake. I filled them up, but I can tell you it was really hard for me to fill the page with the borders of the next artwork on the right side. It is much easier when the border is on the left side and you just continue drawing it. I was very unhappy with it, but now I added some paint, some glitter and paper and now it is okay. :)

Kerstin`s book ready to go

I haven`t send Kertsin`s book to Leah yet because I think I should wait to her less busy then finish the first book.
Leah, but if you think it`s okay then just tell me, I `ll send off the book next week!:)

My drawings on Kerstin`s book

I never draw about mythology, so it would be a great experience and practice to me. I started to draw Kerstion`s book after one day I receive her book, first I just drawed a piece, then I add other items alittle bit in next few days(but I think it looks kind of messy :-O)

gonna send to Leah next week!

Lisa´s Envelope

Lisa´s Moly
Lisa´s moleskine for the moleskine exchange group 20 has arrived. I just had to show the pic, as the envelope was huuuge compared to the tiny moleskine. :)

I was inspired by a sketch I did recently at the Domaine Carneros winery in Napa and decided to use an expanded version of it to start off my Moly.

The book's theme is "Place", but feel free to interpret that loosely or ignore it. Also, if you'd like to interact with other art in the book please do so.

I included some of my cards in the back pocket: take one, and if you'd like add some of your own.

Here are the front title and sign-in pages:
