Carl Stalling influences moleskine creation

I am in my second week in France. I have finished this moleskine and am almost done with Kerstin's. I still haven't started my "Three Billy goats Gruff" for the Once Upon Exhibition. In fact it is stewing in my head and I am starting to get a little stressed about it. I bought some paper to start it the other day, and I think I am going to have to buy some other paper, as I am concerned about the size and that I'll go overboard and forget it needs to be A5. So, starting with an A5 to begin with is a better idea. In between those thoughts, we have Finders Keepers and the organisation of my stall, items and the thing hanging over my head... public liability insurance. I don't understand what people could do on a stall of art, perhaps poke their eye out with a postcard? I find the whole not taking responsibility for your own actions baffling, but that is how it is.
It is starting to get a bit stressful that my Etsy store is closed too... I think I am going to reopen it soon.

Feel like I have been sitting in the house since getting to France. At least I can draw and paint without people asking me what I am doing. Bonus!

Have arrived in France to find two moleskines waiting for me. I have this one of Marty's with his all over screen printing, which is interesting as I see images within the ink mixing and am happily creating images whilst listening to Carl Stalling (the man who created the music for the Warner Bros. cartoons, which is the choice of music for this moleskine).
The other is Kersten's Tribute to Edward Gorey, and I think I have an idea for this one too.
Strange to be in France, almost like I never left.

What I put these cameras through, definitely puts them in the category of strong. This is another moleskine for the exchange 6. This one is Lapin's, and his theme is collections. I had to brush the dust off the Flexaret to draw it.
