I have been thinking about this moleskine since it landed in my hands, and knew I just had to put the album on and go for it. I took up a lot of room, but I think it is an honest interpretation of the music for me. It is a similar reaction for me as Marina, I think. It conjured up rain and being in Europe with my husband's family.

I am doing books out of order. Sue me! I will do Will's next. Hope that you like this Marina. Yours is turning into a busy book. It will be very, very interesting to see how it looks completed. I will put it in the mail tomorrow. Marina, I think that we used the same photo reference, so my art matches the image of AC that you drew inside the front cover. There are a couple other little tiny bits I added other places in the book.

Here is my addition to Marinas moly, I have chosen the track 'No words' , like Wil I have not listened to much Jazz, and hated this cd on first listening....then I put it on in the car, drove around listening to it and now I think it is wonderful ! Thank you so much for the introduction !
I hope the entry I have made doesn't come over as too dark, but it is how the track affected me :-)

I am certainly enjoying painting over the top of the screen printing that Marty created. I see images within the mixing of paint, and am happily painting away while listening to the music. I really missed working and being able to leave stuff about and come back to it without packing it all completely away. Anyway. Still working.

Do you see Pearl, our Greyhound in the doorway. The other dog, Marko, not shown, is not so impressed with the snow. This dog, Pearl, is from Texas. She is impressed by snow, even this little bit. Me too. Pretty day.

It was a challenge to follow the amazing Ooli’s drawing. Hope you like it.

I will send the music on a cd with the package. Let me know if you have trouble with the format of the music. As I wrote on the back of the book, I do not really think of Carl Stalling's music as a dark or nocturnal. It is bright, bold, funny, and often dangerous. His music is controlled chaos. It is filled with references to all kinds of music, very eclectic. I hope that I succeeded with the controlled chaos part.
Emma, here it comes.

Memory comes when memory's old
I am never the first to know
Following the stream up North
Where do people like us float
There is room in my lap
For bruises, asses, handclaps
I will never disappear
Forever, I'll be here
Morning, keep the streets empty for me
I’m laying down and eating snow
My fur is hot, my tongue is cold
On a bed of spider web
I think of how to change myself
A lot of hope in a one man tent
There's no room for innocence
Take me home before the storm
Velvet moths will keep us warm
Morning, keep the streets empty for me
Uncover our heads and reveal our souls
We were hungry before we were born

I used a screenprinting squeegee and any free ink that I could find at the printmaking studio. I'm going to try screenprinting my entry into this book. I know it will get goofed up. I'm very clumsy with screenprinting. That will be part of its charm. Right?
Filled the entire book with background color. I know that's no trouble for this gang. I hope that it inspires.

I’m going to listen to Ooli’s music now and to be ready for her book ;-)

You can choose another song from this album. I’m going to attach a CD for each of you.
Happy creation! Enjoy the music!

This is a very compressed version of my moleskine.
I am worried I haven't done enough in it...
... as you can see here... do I need to worry, or do I add at the end if I think I need to?

So, this is as much as I want to share for the moment. I have been doing work throughout the book and wonder if I am taking over, but probably not. There are only six of us after all. I'll show you the parts that are drying later.

Blue being my song I have chosen blue patches to put throughout my book, these are for covering over, leaving alone, whatever you wish. I usually have white page fear......i think that these patches in my book might induce another sort of fear......but be free, thats what I hope for :-)
