Debut of the Flying Moleskins

I was honored when asked by fellow artist and blogger Dominique Eichi to join in the inaugural launch of the Flying Moleskins project. Thirteen artists from all over the world are participating in a unique format.

The usual method of passing art books for people to contribute some are is to have one single book which goes back to the original owner.

Dominique thought of letting everyone have their own book with their own collection of works from all artists. Some chose to have themes (like me) and some chose to allow us creative freedom. Please visit this new blog to see all the artists participating in this unique project HERE.

Oh, wow, Sheila..how cool!! But the theme...Things Ya Love...ouch.
After all, there's only ONE sketchbook per person...hmmm...At last count I had 713,406 things in the Love folder. Guess I'll send some to the Like-a-lot folder. Seriously...neat theme...should be fun.

This is wonderful, Sheila! I also look forward to contributing, Plus I'll get to see what everyone did in it in person since I'll be the last one to receive it.
