Today I got a nice surprise from Marty— Gustav Klim's book for Moly-X29, the Rainbow Exchange. What makes 29 so different is that each artist picks a colour of the rainbow and can only create their piece using variations of that colour. Gustav is Yellow, Emma is Green, Marina is Blue, Marty is Indigo, I am Violet, Jill is Red and Yoda is Orange. It's a fun challenge, being limited to one colour. This book is one of the most spirited ones that has come my way— there's a freeness to the styles each artist has used so far. My work is generally pretty tight, so this is the perfect book for me to loosen up in.
I also finished my entry in my book for Moly-X64, the sequential art exchange. I used a dip pen and brush, Winsor & Newton India ink, white ink and some red gouache. I am encouraging the artists in 64 to continue the story as they imagine it, only using black, white and a spot of red. I think it'll end up quite visually interesting.
Now I've got to deal with the rest!
