jet set sigh


Just thought I'd tell you about a new, and exciting, project I'm involved in. I was honoured to be asked by Miguel Herranz to join the Moleskine Exchange group (also known as MoleyX). The idea is that a group of artists each purchase a little Japanese Moleskine, draw on a couple of pages and send it on. The next participant will then add a bit more before passing it on. This keeps on going until the books are full of lovely drawings.
Anyway, for a better explanation (!) and to keep track of the adventures of our little Moleys, as they jet around the world, check out the new blog HERE. Oh yeah, you can also see the list of artists taking part. At which point you will be able to fully understand why I'm so intimidated! Sigh.

Lovely drawing and exciting project! You have no reason to be intimidated - your drawings are both original and very good.

Where did you get your Japanese style Moleskine? For some reason or other they don't have them in the shops in Denmark, although they have all the other types of Moleskine sketchbooks.

I'm Vanadisa on Flickr by the way. :)

Thanks guys, you are very kind.

Gogler, i had exactly the same problem here in the UK. My usual suppliers sell all the other Moleskines apart the Japanese. Luckily a kind friend in Italy sent one to me. Sorry, that's probably no help to you.

Cheers peeps.
