not again - the end?

Okaay, time to admit it, I think the book has disappeared in the mail system again, not a good thing as this means that the project has come to an end, sad it may seem but you never know, the book may turn up?! if it does then the project will carry on.

but what i would like is for the work to continue somehow. I do have a list of definate people that the book was going to, with this in mind I am considering other ways to get all our work together in the one place, it would be a shame after all to get everyone interested and then have nothing to do!
possibly a page for all of those chosen to put up 8 pages of work (moleskines sized) and then post me the work they did to then be put in a final moleskine book, we could do it on a blog page and if we all put a small entry on the blog I could print and paste this into the final book. of course I would then post the book round to anyone who was wishing to take a real life look at the finished product.

If anyone has any other ideas for carrying on or if you wish it to come to an end for now, please comment on this post, i really do feel like this is a decision we all should make together.

over and out, Andrew.

where is the damn thing!

well I have been a little worried of late, the moleskine was posted before xmas and has been in the postal system for 4 weeks! japan to argentina! its a long way to go over the festive period, I feared the worst, I thought we had lost another moleskine but NO, it has arrived in argentina! WOOP WOOP! no more worries about that then.
on another note, the black moleskine? due to some of my current circumstances I had put that on hold for a while, any way I am picking myself up and brushing myself off and setting the black mollie off at the start of february.

chow for now!

just a quick one then,

hi y'all its been some time since i posted, so......

i really like what tom has done with his pages, i love the internet guide as, i must admit, i have no idea what helf the people i talk to on the internet are saying! what with the wtf?, lol's and lmao's and all the other stupid 'netspeak' they use. why cant people just use plain english? there i go again having a rant!

anyway the book is now in hiroshima, japan! ultra-global project now. it ended up in there due to me giving tom a list of destinations where to send it next and he picked japan. i have a feeling i may do this with the book alot, especially whilst i still have lots of destinations left to send them.

cant wait to see the next entry and find out where it goes next.

Arrival: Hiroshima!!!

Yay! The lovely red moleskine has arrived and Tom's drawings are going great with my morning coffee :) I especially like the "afterpaste". What to put in it? Suddenly I feel nervous!

Here are my completed 8 pages, I just went for the sort of thing I draw in my personal sketchbooks. I usually only draw on one side of the page as the black ink shows through, so I glued some paper onto every other page.

Here's a breakdown of each of the pages:

Page 1 - The stamp from the envelope the book arrived in, mounted in a gallery and being viewed by critics.

Page 2 - A drunk naked man ruining a carpet at a party.

Page 3 - A group of chavs.

Page 4 - An advert for 'Afterpaste' toothpaste. I love drawing adverts for disgusting and/or useless products I invent.

Page 5 - A pile of random characters. I used to doodle pictures like this all the time at school.

Page 6 and 7 - A translated guide to 'The Idiots of the Internet'. Mostly inspired by the stupid comments often seen on YouTube videos.

Page 8 - The Joker. Loosely based on Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Batman villain. Thought I'd go for a change and use some colour on this one.

I had a lot of fun finishing my pages, and ended up finishing a fair few in my own Moleskine too. Hope you all enjoy your turn, and fingers crossed this one doesn't get lost.
