Basset Hound drawing on moleskine….

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and drawings on moleskin lovers. LOL! I had no idea what moleskin was so I looked it up.

Moleskine (pronounced mol-a-skeen’-a) is a brand of notebook manufactured by Moleskine, an Italian company.

For two centuries now Moleskine has been the legendary notebook of artists, writers, intellectuals and travelers. From gifted artists Henri Matisse (18691954) and Vincent van Gogh (18531890), to poet and leader of the surrealist movement Andr Breton (1896-1966) to Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961).

So, there you go! Here is the drawing I found by an artist named rusty486.


This drawing was on a site where artists can submit their art. So, rusty486, if you see this, leave a comment and tell us about the beautiful basset you drew. I love it!

Move loving moleskine later…..Cat, Chaps and Emma

    cool! the only moleskin i knew of was the moleskin i have used for blisters and such made by the famous dr scholl’s.

    The Dr. Scholl’s brand was founded as a company by William Scholl, who was born in 1882 and graduated as a podiatrist from Illinois Medical School in 1904. Scholl William M. Scholl died in 1968 at the age of 86, leaving the company to his nephews, William H. Scholl (19202002) and Jack E. Scholl (19262006).

    i don’t know iffen he or his kin were fond of bassets or not…but i like their moleskin…it makes my feet ouchies feel better.

    What a great drawing. I never heard of moleskine but that is explained if it is used by intellectuals.

    Hi there, i think The JAC shelter called me to see if our rescue wanted to take in a white basset with blue eyes. I told them to send a photo since I didn’t believe they actually had a white basset with blue eyes. So the story of PN begins.

    He came to live with me for a while until I agreed to share him with Karen Wells, extraordinary dog trainer and lover of all things basset.
