Round 2

There have been a few questions about round 2 and people are anxious to get started. Yay! Go ahead! Start your new books if you are ready. I know what I am going to do on my first page, I just have yet to start it. Here are answers to your recent questions.

We are doing a max of 5 pages in each others books. 4 of your own and 1-2 collaborative. If it's your book, do 4 and a half pages. When you receive someone elses book, complete 1/2 of the collaborative page they left for you, 4 of your own and another 1/2 page to collaborate with the next person. Does that make sense?

That number may be a little different if you are using the watercolor book, so count your pages and figure out how many each person can do. We have 12 participants.

Please everyone check in with a post when your A4 arrives. Once you post that you've got your book you'll be added to the Round 2 blog roll on the right. =)

Also, I wanted to encourage everyone to put a little something in the pocket of each Moly when you get it. I was a bit surprised from round 1, some of the pockets were empty when they came around to me. I'd like everyone to make use of those pockets, get creative! Nothing to big or bulky, just something small.

Lastly, I'd like to make September 15th the first ship date for round 2 if that is okay with everyone. I know it is a ways off, but I still have two folks who I have yet to hear from. Ash Edwards has yet to respond to her blog administrator email and Willie B. has yet to decide. I will try and get both of them up to confirm and commit as soon as I can. Once I hear from them I'll email all of you the mailing order.

Sound good?

EEEk and a little scary!

Andrea said...

I know, right?

Aya Rosen said...

Sounds great! I'm about 2 pages done in mine. I'm really excited to see what everyone is working on.

Aya Rosen said...

Oh and so far for me at least - 99% of the fear factor was gone after I drew the first line in.

Awww c'mon guys, there's nothing to fear! It's all about fun, art, getting creative, and did i say fun?

Hey folks, good luck on round 2, and really enjoy it - be yourself and create...

i will be sorry not to be partaking, but it was a hard decision - besides i'm still waiting for my final book in round 1, so i'm officially at least three weeks away from finishing. And yes, I'm really looking forward to doing that one (Alan's).

Boo hoo, Johnnynorms, that means I won't get your art in my book, either :-( Well, I suppose you've earned a rest. Thanks for posting such nice work. I've enjoyed creeping this blog for a year, in part because of you! Glad Mary turned me on to the Round 1 gang at the onset, so I could see everything as it went along :-)

Johnnynorms said...

hi henniemavis - my turn to follow the twists and turns of your books! i shall definitely stay tuned.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Oh, John, good, we WILL be seeing more of your work from round ONE! YAY!

ash said...

Amazing. Sorry for the late reply p.s.

Andrea said...

I've heard from Ash now and guess what?!? Willie B. is a YES!! Hooray, we are confirmed here people. I will get the email list out to y'all next week as it is trapped on my work computer.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

YAY! A full complement! Woohoo!

I haven't drawn my first line and really need to--then as Aya says, maybe the fear will go.
