Thoughts from a Shadow
I am honored to be a part of a new book lovingly created by artist, blogger, and friend Orly Avineri. Orly is the keeper of One Artist Journal, a blog that spotlights her personal journal pages and accompanying thoughts. In May 2012, she released her first book, aptly titled One Artist Journal, based on the posts within her blog. The book is a gorgeous compilation of thought-provoking imagery and lyrical text.
Just a few days ago, Orly's second book was released. Entitled 14 Artist Journals, this book shares the private journal pages of 14 artists. I am thrilled to be 1 of the 14.
I have only had my copy for a few hours and I am already obsessed with this book. It is beautifully designed and has the look and feel of a journal itself - both because of the book's size (about 9 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches) and the fact that the pages are full bleed.
I am familiar with some of the artists within the book, for example Jesse Reno, Juliana Coles, Brian Kasstle, Tracy Moore, and Nathalie Nayer. But many of these artists are new to me. It is very clear that the journal pages shared are quite personal. And unique. I am struck by the fact that I can glean so very much about the personalities of each artist by their pages -- which feel like a bit of a glimpse into the artist's soul.
Orly is hosting a giveaway of a copy of her book to one lucky person who comments on her blog post here. You can read more about the book on her blog and can order it directly here.
Ten pages from my journal were included in the book. I wanted to share with you a few of those pages that were not published. I give you...Thoughts from a Shadow:
