Here's Johnny's!

Sorry, I've been a bit elsewhere this month, things have moved faster than I allowed for. I've posted late, Milo - so sorry! next month will do better.
Here's Johnny's Molie,




the titles are, Simple, A Lull in Hostilities, A Geezer In Crayon (crayons work surprisingly well on Molie paper), Girl, A Man In My Tea, Wilf, Typical British Weather (hey, John!)

Old friends may remember Simple as my second ever IF submit and the first serious attempt at IF. I stumbled across it while tidying my trash can archive and thought it fitted the molie page nicely so I redid it. Also the fly, with modifications.

Wow Ian, I love them all, and such a generous amount of work in my book!

I couldn't remember whether it was seven works or eight pages or something else, but I wanted to finish on a single left-hand page because it's nice to see the transition between two contributors. I know that's not a rule but... 'really free! I enjoyed it.

no worries Ian! hey, i don't recall how many pages to do either... 7 half pages... or 6 all the way across both pages? i have no idea.. anyway, your drawings are great, can't wait to see them in person :)

Excellent work! Love the fly! Having lived in the UK for twelve years I too fully understand the rain. Now living in New Mexico, I wish for rain.

yes, I saw your blog, Mike - did you see the Fairford Air Show got cancelled due to bad weather? First time in 38 years!

Thanks, Milo - should be there in five days! Look out! Big mailpak, they done run out of small ones. Typical British post office. ;o)

I did see they canceled the international air tattoo. I worked the show 85-94. I was there when the migs collided. I love the area. Glous is beautiful. Although, my favorite place to go was Bibury, especially when I needed to think.

All beauties Ian, and yes, I remember the "Simple" illo. Good to see it reworked and included here in Johnny's book!

WoW, these are really great. Nice variety of ideas, and excellent execution.

I am partial to A Lull In Hostilities. Great work!

Andrea said...

The original idea was 7 pages, but since then we had one drop out, so do eight is you want.

Hell, do 9 if you are feeling wild & crazy. ;)

What fun it is to see these! I'm really enjoying it. I love them all but my mostest favorite it the FLY!!!! He he hee! LOL! NICE WORK!

so 8 single pages is 4 double pages or?

Andrea said...

I am counting a page as a single, so if you do a double page spread then you have completed 2.
