Look what I found!

Life has a funny way of monopolizing your time and you end up forgetting important pictures on your hard drive. What a thrill it is to meet a fellow Moly-Xer. Back in August, I met our very own Chris, the Rebelpapa, and handed him Chensio's book. Chensio, your book travelled with me from Istanbul to San Francisco, to New Hampshire, where it was delivered safely to Chris. A bit longer than posting it, but much more fun.

I can't believe I neglected to post this.
Chris, it was wonderful to meet you!

Very nice to see these stories. Although we relate virtually we do an exchange of real and valuable experiences through our art. I think it's very nice to see people involved in this

It was a really great experience meeting both Chris and Anna. It sure would be grand to meet everyone! Maybe one day...

Where´s the molys?

I've still got mine— just waiting for a few to get moving so I don't add one more to Chris' load...

Chris, how are you doing with the mollies?

Chris Menice said...

I'm currently working in Santiago's moly. I'm about 75% complete. I'm really pushing the envelope on skill level to try and produce something that I hope is at least comparable to the artists in this wonderful group. I truly don't feel my talent is worthy. That said, it takes me hours and hours and hours to finish. If I had to guess on the amount of time I have spent on Santiago's moly, I would say somewhere in the range of 30 hours. Is that too much? My skills are way less than my perfection.

I've got Chensio and Ramires books in queue. I'm hoping to try something a little different in each of their books that *I hope* will be much faster with the same or better quality.

Sorry to delay you all. I keep going back and forth on whether I can even handle this group. Your talents seem so great to mine and it is beyond stressful to try and keep up. That and the 3 other creative projects I have on my plate. I might have bitten off more than I can chew.

My Best,

Chris, I think you are being too hard on yourself! Your entries have been great— I don't believe that you are lacking in any skill or talent. You just need to believe in yourself and get past that fear that every single artist goes through at some point in their lives.

My entries take days and weeks— so I think 30 hours is nothing to be ashamed of! The shortest time I ever took was around 20 hours.

I don't want you to be stressed, none of us do— if this project is seriously causing you distress, perhaps you should pass the books on to Chensio. It would be a shame to miss out on your work, but like I said, this should not be causing you any grief. This should be fun!

Let us know what you plan on doing, and please stop worrying about your skill level— there is nothing to worry about!

I agree with Samantha, please I love your draws and I prefer to receive a doodle and know you are happy. It's a party, just do exactly what you know :-)
Hugs Ramires
