super Marty, it is wonderful, as usual from you! I think my book gets the record for moving the fastest in this group, cool!

Yes, everyone come to SF!

Looks awesome, Marty. I am a huge fan of masquerades and powdered wigs.

Not fair, Emma! My book's been to Israel twice. HA! I love you Marina.

Thank you all, I had a lot of fun doing these books the last two weeks. What I would normally do in Adobe Illustrator I have done by hand. I had thought about doing a couple of entries in Illustrator and pasting them in, but it's not a habit that I want to get into. In Illustrator, the image never ever gets away from me. I can always save, or delete, or rebuild. Where is the fun in that? Doing these entries by hand, they always get away from me, one way or another.

ha ha! It was on purpose - to add some action to the game!

I absolutely agree with you, Marty. For me all these mistakes, wrong lines, sometimes "bad" paper, are making an artwork unique and fun. You never make mistakes in Illustrator.

Oh Marty, I keep looking back at this in awe. Seeing it in person is an entirely different experience. It's is just stunning. I cannot wait to have you draw in my Mollies.
