This bottom image is my final collab for Mike and I am pretty sad about it.  :(

Elephant Fish Watercolor (What?)

Finally! Roma's Moleskine is on its way home... As the last artist - I wanted to play around in another medium and have some fun. Thus! The Elephant fish. I was recently surfing in South Padre island and had hoped for some fresh seafood, but all the places were "We cook your catch." I didn't catch anything, but waves - so I went hungry for some fresh fish and ate mexican.

pages 2 and 3 in Molly's book

 This took all day... and I mean all day... I didn't do anything else today, but it was fun and it's been a long time since I dedicated so many hours straight to drawing.

 I'm very happy with how this came out, though it doesn't capture the awesomeness of the original photo.

I don't know if you are all following Molly's Flickr or Tumblr, if you do, you know that aside of being an amazing painter, she is also an amazing photographer. I'm keep being super impressed with her ongoing series of self portraits, and how she keeps coming out with great original ideas of showing different sides of her personality in her images.

So, I decided to dedicate my work in her book to some of those portraits. This is the first page with Ammon, and Molly is hiding somewhere in there, in the flowers.

Frida's Garden
Hay everyone! finally I have a book! i just got Molly's from Ammon, and very excited about starting to work in it.

 So here is my question. Molly is next in line, but looking at the Google Doc, it looks like her book never made it to Mary or Roma. Shell I send it to Roma? to Mary or to Molly?

Ballookey in Andrea's

Hey there!

I sent Andrea's off today. I'm not quite done with the Exchange as I still have to finish my work in Mary's book - it looks like according to the spreadsheet it's nearly done, so either the last person to have it or Mary can send it to me.

I really loved the illustrations Aya did in Andrea's, taken from dreams or nightmares, so I continued along with that idea.

But first some birds to get warmed up: Collaboration with Molly-


From a recurring dream about driving off the map - first the map gets weird, then it runs out... I like the top portion, but the weirdness and map-ness didn't really work out so great on the second half. For the car, I was inspired by the illustrations in Norton Juster's The Phantom Tollbooth, of the kid Milo in a toy car.


A complicated dream, full of weirdness, reduced to just a couple of elements. Walking down a sidewalk at night, and it gets darker, and darker, and darker (and a little scary) until nothing is visible in the vicinity of the sidewalk. Coming out the other side of the darkness, the right side of the path falls off into open space.


And the beginning of a collaboration with Andrea. I may or may not have been watching the Late Late show with Craig Ferguson when sketching this. OK, yes, I was.

Ammon In Molly's Book

To share with Aya.

The great shared effort.

When you lose your body it is best to see the positive things.
