Mike's Mole shipped to Gretchen - Round 3

Mike's Moleskine collage collab

Yay! I got Mike's Mole to the post office before it closed at 1pm today. I wasn't sure if I could, but I did a quick-and-dirty collage this morning for Gretchen to complete. I used different Washi papers, some old airport tax fees from China (as I know Mike traveled there before), and a few little doodles.

And guess what was waiting for me at the post office when I got there? Andrea's Mole that Mike sent. Woo hoo! I'll wait a few days before I start drawing in it. Andrea's pages have a lot of texture and surface, planes and dimension. They make me think of artists like Kandinksy or Jonson. I might ruminate on that and see what comes up for me.

Ah, it feels good to finish a Mole. Is that how it is for everyone? BTW, here's another photo of the spread from my previous post. The colors are a bit truer than the scanned version.

Happy weekend!

Ooh, that photo makes a big difference in the color. It looks great, and I really like that bird.

It's gorgeous. The new photo and I like the collage, too. It will be fun to see how it's finished.

I thought I had commented on these, but I guess I just thought about commenting and didn't. Wonderful! I can't wait to see these in person. It really is exciting to see all the creative energy developing - capturing the moment in each mole'.
