Pens from Andrea

I got some new pens from Andrea--0h goodie--for participating in her collaboration challenge on Something Different. I love those blue energels. I doodled a little doodle first in the back of my Round ONE Mole--which still has some blank pages. Once I got a feel for them, I did a collaborative piece for Ammon. I have one more piece to do in Andrea's Mole, sorry it's taking so long--but it's a good thing I did not take the mole with me, because we got POURED ON camping and everything got soaked!!!! These came out in the wrong order. The collaboration is on top. The doodle to try out the pens is on the bottom. Both images enlarge if you click on them. The doodle enlarges to bigger than it is in real life, at least on my screen.

By the way, the collaborative piece is intended for Ammon, but if anyone else would like to play, I'd love to see what you might do with this. I am having fun fantasizing what Ammon might do. I will send ONE handmade art card to ONE person who does a collab with this piece. If more than one person does, I will use a random number generator to pick someone. No strings attached.

And here is another pocket item for Andrea:

It is a sketch I made separately, since I didn't know how many pages in the mole I should use. I made it with a pencil from Andrea. Seemed fitting.

I just love seeing how much you are inspired by new pens, Mary. A true artist. The collab piece looks like it was meant for Ammon. Somehow it reminds me of his lumberjack drawing. (Guess because of missing limbs.) :)

Thanks, Roma--I do get excited, like a little kid, when I get new pens and pencils!!! :-D


That first picture I feel as if it's been done before even though I copied the face sort of from an add on the table.

The Mole is done and the address printed out, but I've been so absurdly busy, I haven't had time to get to the O, maybe today!

*that should say PO, not O (POST OFFICE).
