Artist Journal Chronicles is Here!

ajccovershotblogI wish I were you for a couple hours.

That’s weird, because I have rarely wanted to be in someone else’s shoes. I like my crazy life.

Actually, I don’t even want to be in my “SHOES”, but you know what I mean.

I wish this book had been written by someone else, because then, I could be like you, and have the pleasure of opening and exploring a WONDERFUL adventure in my favorite subject – art journaling.

Since that can’t be true, I do appreciate the joy I had in putting this together for other journal lovers.

Artist Journal Chronicles, Volume One, is a PDF book that you download on checkout. It has 90+ pages about the What, Why, When, and How of visual journal pages. It has story, maps of creative process, tips and art lessons, reviews, tool talk, and page projects for every level of complexity.

In this age of boutique publishing, I don’t know whether to call this a series of books or a magazine. So I decided it is a periodical.

Then I looked up the meaning of “periodical” and was a little worried about the “Regular Interval” part of the definition, because you all know about my unpredictable art life, But I enjoyed this so much that I plan to start the next volume as soon as I see whether you support this project by purchasing this one.

One person should not go purchase this volume because she won the free copy. That’s you, Rhee. I have sent you an email with the download link.

The way I did this was to yell out to Mark to pick a number between 1 and 68. He picked 28. I then went and counted to the 28th comment from the beginning – leaving out myself and one duplicate. Random enough I figure.

Anyway, without further ado (I will be back with more ado later), here is your link to this most amazing publication (in my humble opinion, of course, since I am thus far the only one to have seen it).


Please let me know if you enjoy it. I would say “and if you don’t” but I just don’t think that’s possible (grin).

    What a lovely book/magazine/periodical! Your writing is friendly and informative, and the photos show exactly what (for example) your palette should look like as you mix a watercolor wash. If/when I finish my paying work for the day (which, alas, means I’ll have to stop reading and start working), I’m going to dash out to my kitchen table and try.
    Thanks so much for the free copy!

    Loved it and thank you for all the hours you spent in preparation. You have always presented your vast collection of ideas in a format that triggers inspiration as well as delightful reading. I can hardly wait to sit down and absorb the material and know that there will be many new journal pages as well as great fun, in the future. I do have one minor suggestion for the next volume and that would be to number the pages, if possible. Having printed my download out so that I could read it at my leisure and make notes, I dropped it—-so you can imagine what went on from there. Did get them all in order and numbered so that if clumsy again, it will save me time. Again, thanks for an excellent presentation.

    HI Marilyn – thank you for your wonderful feedback. (Rhee and Maureen too). I am a little puzzled because the PDF I generated did have page numbers. I am off to figure out why your copy did not.

    I’ll let you know what I find out.
