One of those entries....!!

One of those entries where everything I plan goes wrong, but I like it. I hope you will enjoy working in this book. I am hoping that you will feel free to draw and paint as you wish over my designs.

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.


  1. Yeah!
    Your Moleskine may go on a Greek holiday.

  2. I don't know what you've planned, but I LOVE it too! Can't wait for going over your inspiring ink backgrounds!

  3. I really really like it, its going to be challenge to work on this, which is a good thing!

  4. Emma, would you please send your address to me via Flickrmail. I am certain that yhou sent it already, but it is hiding from me.

    I listened to Carl Stalling yesterday. This artwork is NOTHING like his music. In fact, my picture is nearly the opposite of Carl Stalling's music. I think this will be an interesting book in any case. Good luck to you all. Thanks for your generous comments.

  5. I think the artwork is the main thing.If art was predictable it wouldn't be art.Your picture is very expressive and the colors are so good!

  6. Exactly. That's what you got. It is how music works.
