Moly X-42: Jenn’s "Favorite Animal" Moly

Finally finished Jenn’s moly, and now it will be returning to her. I worked up the preliminary sketch back on January 3rd. A delicate inquiry on the MolyX-42 site was just the prodding I needed to finish up. I promised I’d get it done this weekend. Sometimes deadlines are good things.

A shot of the work in progress:

Pages!?! We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Pages!

I beg to differ.


The quote: “We are inclined to believe those whom we do not know because they have never deceived us.” —Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

This is a quote that, it could be argued, has outlived its time. Skepticism and cynicism are my usual first reactions these days. Of course, I still get suckered every now and again by a certain parent who shall remain Dad, so I haven’t lost all the naiveté just yet.


The quote: “Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.” —Malcolm Forbes (1919-1990), in Forbes magazine


The quote: “The creation of art is not the fulfillment of a need but the creation of a need. The world never needed Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony until he created it. Now we could not live without it.” —Luis I. Kahn


The quote: “Last night somebody broke into my apartment and replaced everything with exact duplicates….” —Steven Wright

I hate it when that happens.


The quote: “I dwell in possibility…” —Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)


The quote: “Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water.” —W.C. Fields (1880-1946)

I wonder if the hairs on the back of his neck tickled as I sketched my fellow commuter…nah.


The quote: “If you want to make peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.” —Moshe Dayan (1915-1981)

The church steeple is loosely based on one you’d find in my new hometown. Easily visible from the train platform, I drew this in October. I’ve been a little behind in my doodles, so I did several all in one day.


The quote: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” —Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)

I can’t believe you didn’t know that…duh! 😀
