Light Wraps and More Monoprint Monsters

I received my LightWrap from Two Layers of Cells yesterday and was very excited to get it painted (I bought the DIY one, of course) to cover my twice broken cylindrical light. Sadly you can see the jagged edge (of course you can) of the light through it, so I'm going to have to think how I'm going to fix that without cutting myself.
Apart from that, I had a monoprint moment the other day, I created some monsters on book pages (now with added gouache See here), finally started the must talked about second round of Moleskine Exchange 13.

For some reason, the Mr Floppy song was the inspiration for this piece originally... I had in my head to make an army of mark wearing monsters, but I stopped at four. I know, I know, I was making my life simpler (perhaps laziness?) I am just getting back into working for myself after doing 10 straight (exhausting) days working in the restaurant. Hurrah for new staff!
In case you forget the song:
This is part of The Moleskine Exchange: Portrait Party

Exciting post day today.
I received a gift I bought for a friend from Elly Oak, Zines from Café Royale, Wil's Moleskine for the Moleskine Exchange 71, Tons of card to make invites for Pulp Creative Paper, a very surprise letter from Marina of her gorgeous New Year postcards and lastly I have yet to tackle the Gocco print I did last night. I may use this image for the invites making him all the same colour for the line and creating a new screen to add colour. These ones are getting hand coloured. If you come to the Kirribilli Markets on Sunday (if you live in Sydney), you may see them.
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year people, may it bring all wonderful things and more to you all.
The above image is my most recent addition to the Moleskine Exchanges Portrait Party, this one is Marty... he has many references to raccoons all over the place, so he is a very chubby, furry little raccoon monster.
Moleskine Exchanges grasped me by the throat...

I had two moleskines on my desk (one a bit longer than this one), and today, as I have been at home for a few days, (starting to rattle about a bit now), I decided to just put on the album, in this case it was At Home by Avishai Cohen. It was very automatic and hope Marina is happy with it.
