    #11 ...Moley 2011

    #11 ….. Moley 2011

    THIS SWAP IS FULL

    GENERAL INFORMATION:
    Withdrawals not allowed after November 15th
    (The Cyber Police will not allow anyone to drop you will be stalked for life)
    First mail date Jan 3, subsequent mail by dates will be the first of each month, if that falls on a Sunday the 2nd.
    Moley’s due back to owner August 2011. Another year almost down the drain…wow.
    Materials required: APPROX. 3.5”” x 5.5” Japanese pocket Moley (according)
    Themes: I need ASAP (by Nov 17th) If you aren’t sure about your theme we can discuss it in the thread if you like.

    YOU are responsible for:
    • Choosing, defining and explaining your theme clearly.
    • Each Moley owner will decorate and fill out the first page with your name, address and travel plan (I will provide this to you). The first three pages are yours. This will set the mood for others to follow.
    • All participating artist will start on the third pullout page and create on 4 pages. “Owner” please indicate to your artist if you want their art work to overlap or not.
    • Shipping to the next artist participant on time is so very IMPORTANT.
    • If “life” happens and you are going to be late mailing please let the artist expecting to receive the book and me know what’s going on. We must be in contact at all times.
    • Paying for First Class mail and MANDATORY tracking/Delivery Confirmation.
    • Theme: Artist Choice. Each artist may choose “No Theme” if they want participants to “follow their own muse.” Remember to be very clear if you want them to follow a theme.
    • Letting your artist know if you want drawing only, mixed media, college etc.
    • Page elements should be mostly flat.
    • A lot of time and effort will be put into these works of art so please be diligent in caring for them. (Putting a retainer down on the firing squad next week, should they become essential for completion of the swap).
    • “Mailing” Either priority flat rate envelope or small box with delivery confirmation. **UPDATE: Bubble envies would be okay too....what ever is #1 best protection #2 cheapest tracking
    • PM your intended artist the book is on the way and “artist” please let the thread know it has arrived. I will keep track of mailing dates etc.
    • One Moley per person is the way we want and need to keep the swap going.
    • I need each person’s mailing addresses, phone numbers and email addresses throughout the process. I will give mine to each of you as well.
    AGAIN remember communication is key.
    • If you have ANY questions about your artist’s theme contact him or her BEFORE you start working in it.
    • What does everyone think about including a photo and business card (if you have one) in the end pocket so we can see who has created wonderful art in our books. Or you could attach them to the back of your pages.

    Welcome guys....I am about to fall asleep and really tired so I will get the travel plan loaded tomorrow. I also still need addresses, phone numbers. I will make a list when I have all the info and send it to you in private message.
    Annette

    To help with the "FEAR" factor I would like to request that at least once a week - lets say Sunday or Monday of each week that we all just drop a note in the thread....I'm alive, all is well, life sucks, off to join the circus (pictures required if this is true) - just something to let everyone know that all is okay and on track and PLEASE PLEASE if you are having problems please let us know. THANK YOU......DADA

    I'm really excited about this! This is my first journal exchange.

    I'd like to propose this as my theme. If this isn't ok for a journal exchange, let me know and I can tinker.

    Theme: Great Books
    For the journal page, any interpretation of the theme of "great books". This could be a depiction of scenes or characters from great books, authors, or people engaging with great books in some way. I'd like to see some creative approaches too - maybe a battle of the books (think classics vs. moderns, "serious lit" vs. "popular lit"), weird juxtapositions of book characters and plots, etc.

    I would like artists' works to overlap and/or bleed over. I’d prefer a significant amount of hand drawn/painted art from each artist, but I don't have a problem with with mixed media or collage (and this theme seems like it could lend itself to some cool collage work). I'd also appreciate text incorporated into the image.

    My moley theme is going to be based on Poe's poem The Raven. I would like the color scheme to be gray scale (anything from black to gray so light it looks white) plus the color red (crimson/blood red). I was thinking about dividing up the poem per player but I think I will leave it up to each artist to do what she/he wants using ravens, Poe, or lines from the poem in any medium. Here's a link to the poem on Project Gutenburg: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14082.

    I did a travelling journal with a separate group of people and have the most fantastic book as a result. Enjoy this everyone, and you will gasp when your book arrives back in your hands.

    Hi everyone! I have been off the site for a while [working on some big paintings], but I am so excited to be in this swap...first moley for me, and the first time I have worked in the folding type moleskine...it arrived yesterday, and I am a bit nervous about the whole thing!
    I will give each of your themes my best shot, however! Looking forward to it, and still contemplating my theme...all of yours sound so very cool.

    I have been checking out some moleys online, and was BLOWN AWAY by some of the art!
    Anyway, I am still ruminating on a theme, but here is what I have so far...I would welcome some thoughts/feedback from others..."Altered Ancestors" will be the working title...everyone in the group comes up with their very own fantasy ancestor, and illustrates/arts it however they choose...I am thinking that I am descended from a mermaid perhaps...I swim every day and am most happy in/near the water; but then again, I may have had a druid in my lineage, as most of my big paintings are trees!
    Who knows what lurks in YOUR family tree? Wizards, magicians, gypsys, accountants??
    Anyway, let me know what y'all [I am in South Carolina] think!
