went back to an old trick I learned as a kid...fun but time consuming. I couldn't compete with the style that is e... bold, flowing and full of excitement. So, I went with rigid ruled lines.
Julie: this will be on it's way to you pronto!

Apparently there's been some confusion. You see, I must have told one of my stupid jokes, and somebody called me a dork. So far, nothing out of the ordinary. However, Julie must have overheard and thought the listener called me dore, which, if you put a little accent thingy over the "e," means "golden" in French. From that, Julie figured I must be some kind of genetically modified chicken, one who not only tells bad jokes, but lays golden (dore) eggs. Being the entrepreneurial type, Julie locks me in with the chickens, and waits. I drew in the little thought bubble to really drive the point home.
I finally had a chance to get to Kip's book this weekend. I've had the travel bug real bad lately, and I just got this super cool world map that takes up a full wall in my studio. That's kind of where I got my inspiration from. The Chickenmaster was a tough act to follow.I'll be mailing this to Brett on Monday. Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Here are a couple of Polaroids of me and death by monkeys after a bar brawl !!! Us Moly Xchangers have to stick together. I used watercolor, colored pencils, india ink, and markers. The watercolor was working fine on death by monkeys, but when I was using the watercolor on my face it started soaking in really quickly (weird). Anyway I think it came out pretty good (the watercolor ) I'm a big fan of plaid so I might keep it as my personal theme for this exchange. This book is about 85% done. A little more tightening up and it'll be on it's way to Chicken Master Josh. Hope you like it DBM!!!

Hey, has anyone had any word from Gabi? The moleys are cruising along, but unless Son has Gabi's right now, by the time they get to the bottom of the list there may be a back log if they all end up in her mailbox. Should we bypass her and have Josh (Lars) send straight to Son? At least until we hear something from her??? Not trying to pressure her, but everyone is onto their second or third entry and we haven't even seen her first one...
