There is a new journal book in town: Art Journal Kickstarter - Pages and Prompts to Energize Your Art Journal. Edited by Kristy Conlin, this book provides a ton of inspiration for art making in general and art journaling in particular. The book includes 140+ art journal pages from 100+ journal artists. Each artist also shares their responses to a series of questions about the inspiration behind their pages, their art journal process, advice to other journaling artists, unique techniques used, and artists that they are inspired by.
This is not a traditional how-to or instructional book but rather a source of inspiration for and approaches to journaling. As I turned the pages, I became more and more absorbed by the content of this book. There are a good number of books out there that share journal pages but I found this one particularly informative and inspiring. It seems like a book to savor a few pages at a time and to revisit over and over again.
Full disclosure is that I am a contributing artist in this book, having shared the journal spread pictured below.
But truth is...I would have loved it equally even if I were not on page 84. The book is available for purchase at Amazon and the North Light Shop.
