Shall we end this?

Please let me know.
I haven't seen any work from either of you for a year and a half!

Knock, knock!

Anybody there?
Where are the books?
This was such an exciting group and it seems to have died.
This makes me sad.

I have finally finished my entry in my book. After using so much colour in my entries, I wanted to go back to black and white penwork. I used a dip pen and Winsor & Newton India ink. I'll be sending it off to you soon Yoda!

My entry on my moleskine.

My first entry has to do with the figures I've been drawing for some time. Ilha do Ferro is a community in the interior of my home state, here in Brazil. I love these pieces that represent ex-votos ("milagros" in Spanish) and I am always adding new symbols to them. They are women figures and are so beautiful. These little statues are carved on wood and their dresses do not have these patterns. I love drawing various shapes to them. I am a kind of fashion stylist to them :)
Now I just have to send it off to Samantha.

Best regards,

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Pedro and Yoda!
I'm thinking about what to do with my entry. Once I finish in Yoda's book for Moly-X 48, I'm going to get started. All this moving around has slowed me down and now that I am more or less settled, I'll be able to get back on track. I hope you both had wonderful holidays.

Welcome to moly_x_50!

Moly_x_50, founded by Samantha Zaza (USA), is an extension of the Moleskine Exchange. This blog will follow the adventure of a group of artists around the world, in a Japanese fold Moleskine sketchbook exchange. Our current group includes the artists listed to the right, including contributors in many different countries all over the world.

Each artist will set off with a small Japanese (accordian) folded Moleskine. Creating a drawing, collage, or painting, then send on to the next artist. Each artist will draw on a couple of spreads (3-4 pages) then send it on to the next artist. When the artists book is filled, it will be returned to the owner with images created by artist around the world. Each artist has a month (give or take) to make an entry. The outcome will be a pleasant and surprising adventure, as artists are encouraged to interact and merge their art with others.

The concept:

1. The artists start with the Japanese fold Moleskine - Name, address, email address written in book.

2. Each artist gets 1 month (give or take) to make a sketchbook entry, and mail it to the next person. The order is listed to the right -- for participants in this exchange, look at the list of names under MAILING ORDER. If you ever need to update addresses, please feel free to contact your partners directly! An important part of this project is to discuss and exchange information and ideas.

3. Each artist will do 3-4 pages each round.

4. Artists are encouraged to interact with other images in the book. Please be respectful, but also don't hesitate to meld your art with earlier entries.

5. When the book is full, when one side of the unfolded book is filled, the book will be sent back to its original owner. That artist may continue by buying a new book and sending it to the next person.

6. If a person decides not to continue, she will simply keep her book when it comes back to her. She should email all of the participants to say she is not going to continue. We will decide, then, if we want to find a new person.

7. Please communicate regularly via email. Let each person know that you have received/sent the book. The goal is to have a dialogue. Any comments and questions are welcome.
