I love them and I'm so happy to have some of your work in my book. I think the collaboration between you & Aya is wonderful!

I love the dark, boldly lined ones a lot (pics 2 & 3 from the top). They look "satifying" to create, like if I were to try that technique, the rhythm of making the lines would be a comfort to me.

These are amazing! I LOVE the collaboration--such contrasts and sweetness!

I agree with Hennie about the lines--to me, it looks wonderful--electric but soothing.

the gentle ones are pleasing too!

The satisfaction of the sepia ones was limited by the ink from my sepia micron pen just not wanting to sit quite right on the moleskine paper. Disappointing since I'm used to black microns working so well. Ah well.

This one came with me on a month long vacation to Montana. I would've shipped it out a bit sooner but I didn't have a scanner out there, so I had to bring it back to New York so I could scan it. It's in the mail to Ellen today though.

Wow, a month of vacation in Montana! Lucky duck!! It's fun that many of us get a chance to take these books to places other than just where they are shipped.

I love that this has been to Montana. My favorite trip so far was to Montana for my brother's wedding and we spent most of a week hiking Beartooth Pass. Great times, and I'll think of it whenever I see this.

Ballookey, did you hike Pine Creek Lake (in the Absaroka/Beartooth range)?

We basically spent the entire month hiking around Bozeman and that hike was the best of them all.

We were closer to the Red Lodge side of the pass because that's where the wedding was and we didn't have much time to explore further.

One day we drove as far as Cooke City with lots of stops to get out and explore. Another day we went back to a likely spot we'd seen and spent the afternoon hiking a trail whose name I've forgotten.

It's definitely worth a return trip.
