autobiography in John Norman's mole

So this is the mole I'm seriously late on... sorry everyone.

If you click on the photos, you'll be taken to the flickr page which has more descriptions. For me, drawing this was heavy, since I don't like to revisit my younger years in my head, but sometimes a good art-purgative is needed.

pg 1-2

pg 3-4

pg 5-6

pg 7-8

True Jess. These are fantastic btw! I now see why you were behind - you really put lots of time and thought into these pages.

These are really excellent - I'm glad your art purgative is coming my way..

Jess said...

Thanks you guys :)

The funny thing is that the actual execution didn't take terribly long... but I never wanted to work on them for very long, and the time elapsed between work sessions was long... yeah, you get the idea.

John-- AM I sending the mole to you know? I know Andrea had suggested that, but she hadn't heard back from you-- I have it ready to send out at work, so I can do it if you give me the go ahead. :)

And of course by "know" i mean... "now".

WOW! These are super cool! Beautiful work. I love them--they are particularly neat when you go to FLICKR and click on all sizes and view them BIG! WOW! Nice.

I sort of wish they were all making a second round!

Hi Jess, just read the email and replied - send it on to Steve now and then Andrea will have it last before it goes back to me.

I agree, Jess, these are so wonderful and intimate... well excecuted.

oh, I love these!

Very detailed work Jess! I am glad I get to see these up close. I agree with Mary, it would be great for eveyone to get to see all the books at the end of the project. If time and money were no object, right?

Steve & Johnny - I have the book now, I am already 3 pages in. I hope to mail it off to Steve by the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving.
