Here are some journals & sketchbooks I've been playing in during 2008. A couple of moleskines, a couple of Strathmore Windpower sketchbooks that conserve natural resources, an altered book with green ribbon, and a little brown hardcover book I made in a workshop. Notice Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way" beneath the moleskines. At my fave artist community, Coach Creative Space, there is a group discussing Cameron's "Vein of Gold". Please join us; we'd love to have you. Check it out here... This is a sketch that I want to revisit this year, perhaps with a gift of color. Sincere apologies for the blurred photo; haven't viewed it since I uploaded it months ago. May try to edit later. :-) An ATC I created for The CCS Cozy Christmas ATC Swap. I enjoyed drawing this in ink, then using colored pencils to add softness to the scene. Portraying "whimsy" is not always a strongpoint of mine, so when anything close to it happens, I enjoy it! I have a shiny new moleskine for 2009, so I'll be sharing fresh work as it appears on the pages. More drawing lessons to come, so check back, and please leave a comment, so I can return the favor. Love & Laughter, DJ
