Yikes! we have to mail soon! I better get to work on a theme...
Hey Everyone!!! Hope you all had an excellent holiday season, and kicked off the start of the new year with lots of cheer
At the end of the month we will be preparing for our first mailing! Can you all believe how fast the time has flown??
Sorry I haven't posted the travel plans yet, the past month, particularly, has been kind of crazy for me. Since October at work we have been going through a restructuring process in my department, which is hectic enough when it's not the holiday season... and I moved a couple weeks ago. SO if you were in the G7, my old address is out of date, but I will be sending out a master copy to everyone will all our addresses soon.
Enough of my rambling for now, but to give you guys an update, travel plan will be posted within the next day or two
Hope everyone is doing well, and ttys!
Time flies... wow! Gotta get to work =)
I came up with some explanations/ideas for my theme.
My Chemical Romance
MCR is my all time favourite band. For my moley, I would like you guys to created images that can relate to MCR. I don't necessarily want portraits of the guys. If your really want to do portraits, go for it but I'd prefer to have your interpretations of the songs. And I'd really love it if you could actually write some lyrics in your art. The lyrics to all they're songs are here. Also, I'd like my moley to be a continuous piece of art.
Here are some infos about their concept albums and some themes that I thought of. Don't stress out, you can go wild, really. Don't hesitate to message me if you have any questions!
''Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge''
It's the story of a man and a woman who are separated by death in a gunfight. The man makes a deal with the Devil and he has to bring him the souls of a thousand evil men to be reunited with the woman he loves. He kills 999 evil men and then he realises the last evil man he has to kill is himself. The song "Demolition Lovers" from their first album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love also relates to that concept.
"The Black Parade"
The Black Parade is a rock opera centering around the character of "The Patient". It centers around his passage out of life and the memories he has of his life. "The Patient" dies and death comes for him in the form of a parade.
"Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys"
The album is based around the lives of the "Fabulous Killjoys", in the setting of a post-apocalyptic California in the year 2019. The Killjoys are a group of outlaws who are fighting against the evil corporation Better Living Industries (BL/ind.) and it's various "Draculoids" and exterminators. The Killjoys are always dressed in lots of colour while everything that comes from BL/ind is in black and white and has a very clean look.
Hospital is a safe yet scary place. According to the lead singer, "it is just like the last safe place".
"This is the best day ever" is all about hospital, real great song.
In "The Black Parade" the main character is "the Patient", a man dying in the hospital. Represented by a very skinny and pale man receiving blood transfusion.
Also in "The Black Parade", there's a great song called "Cancer". Very beautiful, brutally honest song. Try to listen and not to cry!
This night, walk the dead
In a solitary style
And crash the cemetery gates.
In the dress your husband hates
Way down, mark the grave
Where the search lights find us
Drinking by the mausoleum door
And they found you on the bathroom floor
It's Not A Fashion Statement, It's A Deathwish
This hole you put me in
wasn't deep enough
and I'm climbing out right now
F****d up love stories/star-crossed lovers
Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For The Two Of Us
The Ghost Of You
To The End
Heaven Help Us
Hear the sound
The angels come screaming
Skylines and Turnstiles
Tell me, where are you?
Tell me where we go from here.

Next I will be making our address list and sending out a pm with our addy's to everyone in the group
Audrey, I updated your theme on our main post
Also sent a PM to everyone with our addresses... if anything is incorrect, let me know asap!! Thank you
I'm making it official my theme this time is: Rainbow of Delight
I want to do something that will be fun, interesting and delightful for all of us.
It will be a color themed book going systemically through ROYGBIV. Each section would use its dominant theme color with sprinkles of accent colors, so that when the whole book is done it is is an obvious gradient from Red through everything else to Violet. The first person would start with Red, second with Orange, third with Yellow etc etc etc. The subject for each color would be what delights/inspires/amuses/brings you pleasure I'd love this book to be gloriously beautiful, blissful, luscious, decorative and colorful. THINK YUMMALICIOUS!
Here is the order...
Langelbleu (intro rainbow)

I would like to have people with interesting clothing, large, small, sitting, standing, dancing, floating...all holding hands.
Those of you that were in the last moley where Sal had all the mad hatters, you know how she had us do the 4 random panels? It turned out so fantastic, I was thinking about that, do you think that would work?
Where you'd have your drawing hold hands with the other drawings but in 4 random panels.
Jules I love it! Sounds totally doable as individual panels, perhaps some could hold hands, some could hold a hand to a foot, or a piece of clothing etc etc etc
I love orange as my rainbow colour!!!
Great idea with the hand holding Jules - boy it's going to get confusing with us two Jules in the same group. I'm rethinking my theme now, was going to do the recipe thing but I may go to something else. Just have to decide what. Quickly. Would anthropormorpihic food be too odd? I have a thing for talking veggies and steak.

Ok, I'm refining my theme - here it is:
Sea Bed - Ocean Floor
Things on the sea floor - sunken ships, weird real or fantasy plant life, outrageous Seuss like creatures or those that are camouflaged, the odd item that may have fallen to the sandy bottom that could be (or not) rusted or covered in barnacles and coral...ooh and those creatures that produce their own luminescence, and also those old metal diving bell helmet people used to use to walk on the ocean floor -and pages can flow one to the next if wanted.

That's a good idea. I always love what creative things people do for their instructions or sign in or what they do with the pocket in the back. I'm just now sitting here contemplating what creative thing I can do for the pocket!
Great themes everyone!!
I have all the links to your individual themes updated, and linked over. I hope everyone is getting excited!!!
