steve's response to andrea's questions

1.) What was your favorite aspect of this exchange?

A: Getting to see the work of other's in person and having the chance to contribute some of my own art to their books.

2.) Your least favorite aspect and/or what would you do differently?

A: My least favorite aspect of the exchange is waiting. I definitely like having time to work but also, I like getting the books relatively on time to keep things flowing. As far as what I would do differently, it would have to be taking even more time with the pages I contribute to people's books.

3.) Are you going to join the second round? Why or why not?

A: I'll definitely be in round two. I feel there's a lot more to this project and I feel I've got a lot more to offer. It's a unique and wonderful project that keeps me keeping up with making some art as well.

4.) How can I improve this exchange?

A: I don't know if there is anything at all that you can possibly improve upon Andrea. You have done an excelent job organizing it, you take it seriously while keeping it fun.

5.) How does this exchange compare to others you participate in or have seen on the

A: I like working on a slightly larger scale, I like having a month to complete seven pages, and I enjoy the freedom with regards to subject matter amd artistic approach.

6.) Give a shout out of appreciation to one group member that made this exchange special for you.

A: I can't pinpoint any one particular individual here. I shout out to every single person who has taken the time out of their daily routine and managed to contribute and stick with this project.

7.) I love sending out art related gift packages, would you like one?

A: Heck yeah! :)

Good answers, Steve!

Thanks Mary! I definitely need to send Andrea some goodies too!

Andrea said...

Thanks Steve! You bring up a point that was important to me when starting this project which is working in the larger Moleskines. I was following a few other exchanges before I started this one and was really surprised that folks were using the small Moleskines. I REALLY prefer the medium size and am still toying with the idea of moving to the new LARGE A4 size. We'll talk more about that in the months to come.

I appreciate your answers Steve. You have been a super participant in this exchange. You have created some wonderful and imaginative work that always inspires me to try new things!

I like the idea of a bigger book!

People who prefer to work small can still do so inside a frame, right?

Andrea said...

Very true Mary, please bring that up as we get new participants!
