Sorry, Heidi.

Some kind of inspiration came over me, and I made an entry into Anna Denise's book. So, I will be sending it to you sooner than I thought I would. AD, it's kind of clumsy, and it doesn't flow beautifully with everyone else's, but I hope you like the story, the rise of a great American artist.

Kathrin's entry in Jenny's Moleskine

The theme of Jenny's book is "Carnival". In the north of germany we don't celebrate carnival, so I drew the carnival of animals.

Olya's book.

"This artwork begs to be colored, but I'm not goig to do it. I have six other books to do and I'm crabby tonight.......Hey, if you would like to color this in, feel free."

Olya, I hope that this amuses you. Heidi, here it comes. I have another book from Lau, but I will hold it for a while so we can catch up.

I am officially a delinquent. I am officially holding up the works. I have three books. I have for days off starting tomorrow, so I will start drawing and send a couple off next week.

Such a bad boy. I actually have five books and two more to begin at my house. Guess I'm not joining any groups for a while.

Hi ladies and Marty!
2day I finished my entry into Lau's Moly. Bears bears bears))))

I counted the sheets left and it turned out that the Moly will be finished by Lau herself-so two entries only are left. Sad =( are we going to buy new Molies and have the second rotation with our group?? I'd love to.

It's slumber-style carnival time - Jenny's Moly!

Hi guys!

Must say, the entries in this journal are FANTASTIC!!
Here's my carnival entry in Jenny's journal... thought I'd include some pesky, mischevious slumber-party faeries for the Faery Pyjama Carnival :)
Might still be tempted to add a few details before packing (you know how it is!)
I'll send this to Anna-D next week!

Love! x

Kathrin's Spirograph doodles in Lau's Moly

I really don't know what came over me, but yesterday I wanted to draw into Lau's Moly; I had no concrete idea, and I didn't want to think about it until I would be blocked by my thoughts. So I drifted and doodled with my spirograph.

Monday, August 4, 2008

Hello! How are you?

Update from 2008/07/08

Thanks Lau. I got Olya's book.

Sorry that it's taken me a while to acknowledge its arrival. Cool book! It came to my house while I wasn't at home. Then, it took days for me to get the post office to pick it up. Then, I packed it and left town. moly_x rolls on. I am looking forward to starting this book during the next couple of days.

Love to y'all.

...and quickly finished!

Marty's Moly is now ready to be sent to Jenny!
Here is what is written on the back page of the picture-short description of the situation over my nearest neighbours))

That's turned to be fun-the neighbour who lives next door to me hates dogs but in the picture-Kathrin's dog is located in his room)))) HAHA)
Will post the Moly on Monday.
Jenny, wait for it)

Marty's Moly has been started ...

Hi all! Here is my piece in progress started in Marty's Moly. I keep his book toooooo long and feel ashamed ^_^
This is a piece of my room (too empty in the pic I'd say)))), in reality it's full of polar bears and different drawing stuff, like canvas, plain and with paintings on), plan to show my neighbors around. Well, I added colours, couldn't control myself!
Hope to finish this weekend and send it on Monday-Tuesday.

Exciting Day!

Hello folks!

SO... you haven't heard much from me lately but here I am with exciting news.
First of all, the moly from Marty-land arrived today. EXCITING!!!
Have to say, the contents are amazing! Talk about pressure to perform!

Second thing is that FINALLY i've completed my entry in Lau's moly.. it didn't go exactly as hoped (doesnt fit in so well with the previous entries) and i 'accidently' managed to get my favourite subject of overheard convo's in there at the same time as seasons.... ;)
The convo's are from Glade Festival in July last year where we experienced floods and torrential rain (lots of mud, and cars being towed out by tractors etc)... during the worst rains i sat in my tent eavesdropping and making notes, like a good little reporter!

I'll post that to Anna D on Monday.

Hope you're all doing fantastically well :)

Jenzbook II

I'm really liking this book. Heidi, I'm going to hold on to it for a few more days, so I can share it with the folks in my printmaking class. I will use it as a recruiting tool. BTW, the type was printed on a Showcard letterpress during a printmaking demonstration at my last class. I kinda dig it. So, I will mail the book on Friday.

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

Jenzbook: Work in progress.

A little preview to assure you all that I am still alive.

Kathrin's entry into Marty's Moly

Sorry for the delay. With every day I didn' start drawing my bad conscience grew and grew and grew. Today I couldn't stand it any longer and I just did it. Hope that nobody from my neighbors will find this here. My drawings has no likeness with my real neighbors.

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

one come - one go

I have to say "I'm sorry" because two things:

. The Jenny's envelope is too much beautiful than my entry in her moleskine.., I'm feel shamed..

. I have a lot of work and I'm too much late.., I'll try to improve it..!

Hi everyone! Finally I prepared my overheard stories. This is collage with Smiley. All the details (pre-history of each story) are written on the back side of the Moly (= ).
PS sorry for keeping it too long-there was too tough 2 weeks at work! Hope not to delay any more.
PSS Heidi's Moly will be posted on Monday (we have 3 holidays in Russia)

I will ship to Lau very soon!

Received Marty's Moly from Anna Denise

Just wanted to tell you that the Neighbor-Moly arrived safe! Thank you Anna Denise for encouraging words and this very nice envelope... I have to admit that I'm nevertheless a litte bit nervous, because I have only some woolly ideas. Btw: This Moly is so great! So much better to see it live than here in the blog.

Flickr Re-Visioned

The raccoon posed for this illustration in the fashon of an earlier illustration I did for moly_x_1. Lau said that the only rule is to have fun. SO.....I had fun. Messy, but that's the raccoon spirit.

I went with a northern hemisphere spring thing to follow Lau's southern hemisphere autumn theme.

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

A lot of work is coming..

Thanks Jenny, beautiful package, amazing drawings (yours and from Ollif!) and so sweet candy (I've taken one, the rest continue across the world)!

Finished (?): Anna's entry in Marty's Moly!

My entry in Marty's 'People in your Neighborhood' Moleskine. Since I don't really know my neighbors (and to be honest, I'd like to keep it that way) I wrote the things that I do know on a map of my small 'block' of houses. Not sure if I'll keep it like this, might just be the 1st version. I think I'd like to add some shading perhaps.

I felt a little strange about adding color, since neither Marty or Heidi used any color, but I added some tiny green details to Marty and Heidi's drawings (hope you don't mind...) to make it look more coherent.

Well, still working on it probably, but just wanted to show you what's going on!

UPDATE: I added the shading and I think I'm done. Will send it out to Kathrin sometime next week. See the picture below for Marty's entire Moly!

Thursday, April 24, 2008


I received your book. DHL tried to deliver it two days ago. Second time was the charm. It is lovely, so pretty and delicately drawn. I am inspired to try something light and springy, a northern hemisphere response to your southern hemisphere autumn theme.

Happy doodling!

The Bezalel Stamp

Hello colleagues ! I'm sending Kathrin's Moly to Lou tomorrow , but before I would like to tell you a story about the stamp that I put in this illustration!

So, maybe you know (or not), but I'm finishing my studies in Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, This Academy was established even before Israel was set up.

About two years ago , Bezalel celebrated 100 years anniversary, and there was a competition , for designing a stamp for our Academy. A friend from my class won!!!! So this is a real stamp made by my classmate , and it was printed to celebrate 100 years to my Academy! (The stamp is real and it was sold in all local post offices).

Love, Kathrin
