allright ladies and gentlemen, long time, no posty.

i was super excited to find the fromto: book in the mail today. when i opened up to the fish page i cracked a big huge grin. i like what you did with the big hole i cut in the book mamacita.

hey mom, finally getting back to it. you should be bothering me to post this stuff like i always do to you.

so i just touched up the tomatoson drawing a little bit, because i can't seem to help myself from outlining and coloring everything in.

i also just left the hole to see what you'd do with it. make it happen, mamacita.

mom was whining about this post, but i don't think she needs to worry, such a perfectionist. mom is becoming a sketch diva, she must have her velvet robe and servants holding the lights at just the right angle to be struck with "her unique vision". ok, i'm lying, but i was giving her shit this morning, and thought i just give her just a little more.

i like her play on words though, TO->MA - TO->SON,,,, just like our sketchbook.... get it? so clever, she deserves to be a diva.

well, mother, i'm trying to be a good influence.  1 day, now that's turn-around.  of course, with short turn around, you get green boobs being plucked from the ocean, and a big hole in the pages for you to work with....

it was such a nice night i didn't even let the bugs bother me.
much cooler now than the swimming red dust of day.
even the farmer's temper tends to cool a degree.
as a sweat boils up inside things the man cannot say.

ok mom, i have no idea.  i've been slacking on my turn to update, and apparently self-imposed guilt comes out as words that don't make any sense and are not spelled right.  i wanted to send it back to you before i left for the rest of the week though.  i feel kind of bad turning grandma into a superhero, although i'm sure she'll use her powers only for good and not evil.  

and i'm not sure why i feel the need to color everything in with little lines.  sure has been happening a lot lately though.  make a shape, put little stripes in it.  not good, horizontal stripes make me look fat.  i stay up too late, that's why nothing i write makes any sense.

well, this has taken me too long to update.  i need to quite being such a slacker.  sometimes i get in stints in filling moleskines, and sometimes they just sit there for too long with anything happening in them.  i wish i knew a way to make myself more disciplined.  maybe someday.  back to you momma!

here's my first addition to the project.  i have a feeling i'm going to end up ruining a lot of mom's drawings throughout this project...

this is the first posting, and the first bit of documentation as sent by mom.  i had given her this sketchbook a long time ago, and she had started one page in it, but had done nothing else so far.  she mailed it off to me, and this project started, largely inpired by those who created the "8861 miles" project.

i guess we'll see how this goes...
