Harry's Book; Melissa's Entry

Harry's Book

My entry in Harry's book reflects my thoughts on Thanksgiving as I sat here on my five day Thanksgiving break. So what you are seeing is that Santa stole Thanksgiving's thunder and he's run away with it. From Halloween, we seem to skip completely over our November holiday in a rush to get to Christmas.

Watercolor Pencil and Ink. I noticed a few things I want to touch up tomorrow, but will pop this in the mail on Monday to Clare. So Clare, the question is...what's he shining that light on?

The Cartoonist's Hat

Just thought I might mention my new blog devoted to cartooning, as well as Moleskine Exchanges - The Cartoonist's Hat.

And while I'm here: I note on our sidebar there are links to moly_x_24 and moly_x_26 , but neither of them appears to be a live blog. Anybody know anything about them? It seems odd that new blogs are being set up while these lie dormant.

Kerry's Moly

(Markers and coloured pencils)

It took longer than I'd expected, but here's the finished colouring of the pencils I posted last time. I hope you like it, Kerry.

I'll be interested to see where Melissa takes it from here, but I won't post it to her until the beginning of December, right?

Did you hear about Harry

Harry!! I just happened upon your blog today and see that you had a big event last evening. Please feel free to post your other art happenings here from time to time. I'll let the rest of the nosy bunnies wander over to your sight now to see what in the world I'm ranting about. Congrats!

Getting Ahead of Myself

(2B mechanical pencil)

This is the layout for my addition to Kerry's Moly. But am I getting ahead of myself, when not everyone has posted their first contribution to Round 2? Keep me straight on the group's etiquette, guys. Are there set times for posting and mailing?

Oh, yes, and ...

Forgot to post the sign-in page.

Let it flow ...

(Markers and coloured pencils)

Here it is then, my first contribution to Round 2. I decided the easiest way to get started was to draw a cornucopia, then let it disgorge its contents. What came out was as much a surprise to me as I hope it is to you.

In the post to Melissa today.

Guess for once.....

 .....I'll be the first to say I'm ready to post.  I decided to go with the colourful characters theme and used what I like to think of as my naive illustrative style!!!  I hope it inspires those that follow!  The first image is as it looks in the book (or part of it at least) the second is the photoshop version with colour-glow!  Its an antidote to all the black and white I have been working with in my textiles.  

Harry - can you email me your snail mail address and I shall pop the moly in the post.
