Journaling is an absolutely fundamental part of my practice. I love it. I have always found it a joy since we were instructed to keep visual journals for each project in college, continually recording and noting my thoughts as my work and ideas developed. For most people in my class, it is a chore which is rushed in a panic the night before a deadline, and while I am guilty of doing this a handful of times over my 3 years in IADT, I generally pace myself and work consistently on mine over the course of the project(s).
I had an absolutely massive clear out today and went through all of my old journals, some which were kept for college, and others which were for personal projects. Just yesterday I had a conversation with one of my class mates about how much I love to keep journals and all of these things combined with my determination to get this blog back up and running has prompted me to scan some of the pages and share them all with you!
The scans are pretty bad, but you get the idea. I've been obsessed with this blog lately http://fuckyeahjournalss.tumblr.com/ and have been searching Pinterest to peek into other artists' books. There's just something so interesting about looking into this little window of another person's mind?!
Do any of you journal? Do you do it as part of your college work or just for your own self? Would you be willing to share with me!? c:
I'd love to see some!
Anyway, you can expect another post or two before the end of the week! It feels good to be back.
Until next time!
