Asking for Santiago's book, and my book ...

Carlos,  Santiago's book is still with you? When you want to send it to me?

Chris,  sent you my book to Carlos?

By the way, where is the Yoda's book?

Sorry for my insistence on this, but I think before we define the group's future we need answers to these questions about the first round.

Farewells and Reunions?

Dear Friends,

The artwork created in this group has been amazing. I think the artwork is one of the best representations of what Moly-X is all about. Great people and great art. There have been a lot of starts, stops and slowness with this group. We started way back in June 2008. Almost 3 years ago! It's amazing that it's been that long! It has been an honor to work beside all of you.

That said, I think it's time to shake up the group. Three years is a long time to keep a common goal in this technology age and I think for some of us our goals have changed. Our group doesn't have to quit, but for some members it may be necessary. I will have no hard feelings if someone doesn't want to continue so please don't feel obligated.

Our group as it stands:

Chris - USA
Chensio - Spain
Ramires - Brazil
Santiago - Mexico
Yoda - Mexico
Samantha - Turkey

If you would like to continue on with the re-group, please respond in a comment to this post. Because I'm writing this post, I'll respond here. I WANT TO CONTINUE. And I will continue with any of you that want to participate. Let's start this with the original enthusiasm we first had. That sparkle of a new group and run with it.

If you are unsure if you would like to continue, I would urge you not to. We want enthusiasm from all members and a willingness to commit.

At this time, it is my understanding that Santiago will not continue and I hope he has received his book with all those wonderful entries.

So let's Go! Who's in and who's out! No hard feelings either way. Let's get back at it.

Call for Entries

I am thrilled that moly_x will be exhibiting at Minnesota Center of Book Arts (MCBA), between mid-January through March 2011. It's coming up! This is a great venue, and this exhibit could mean some wonderful opportunities for other exhibitions around the country, and possible grants. This is a very receptive community.

I would like a few of these great books from this group. These books do not have to be completed. If you have a book right now, would you consider sending it to me. It will be out of circulation through March, but it will get some wonderful attention. I will guarantee it's safe return, or delivery to the next artist on the list.

MCBA does a great job of documenting their shows, so you will have a nice record. Whoever is in the book may add another credit to her/his resumé. We will continue to look for other similar venues for moly_x exhibitions. There are many book art institutions like this around the country, and there are many university book arts, and illustration programs.

I have dreamed of this exhibit since we started this little project.
Thanks for you help.
