In Context: What Goes on the Journal Page?

There are a lot of ways to work out what needs to go down on your journal page. The most obvious way is to think about the overall design and layout of the page or page spread. I see a lot of visual journaling students tie themselves in knots as they compose a page—thinking where […]

Additional Wizard Data: You Do the Math

Today I’ve posted a tabloid reference sheet about the most recent wizard. You’ll want to click on the image so that you can see an enlargement and read all the text. Because of course you want to keep abreast of all the details… You might also want an additional detail view of the image, so […]

More on Wizards

  Pretty much self-explanatory. Just some more stuff I’m pondering.

Finding Clues in Your Journal…

Journals can tell us all sorts of things. They can tell us how whiny we are; how quick to forgive; how obsessed we are with one thing and not another; how focused and dedicated we are to our interests; and of course clues about our health. I was catching up on scanning the other day. […]

OK, I Guess Sometimes I Do Doodle…

A couple months ago I seemed to be living through my own Brendan Gleeson film festival. On this day I was sketching without glasses (if everything is double vision isn’t blurred vision an evening out or smoothing out of the lines?) without stopping the movie. That meant I had to hold things in my mind, […]

In Context—Another Peek at Pandemic Life

Pandemic life can’t help but pop up in your journal if you’re working from home. I’ve been sorting my images, all in little folders ready for blog posts. I have had some, like this one from 2020 set to go—but I don’t remember what the topic was to be.  Last week (2021) I  cooked a […]

In Context—It’s All Grist for the Mind Mill

Ever since childhood I’ve been the type of journal keeper who has visual elements in amongst written elements. It doesn’t matter if it’s something that I hear on the street, or in this case on the TV. It doesn’t matter if it is something that I’m reading. Everything is fair game, and I get down […]

From Last Year, A Trip To Urgent Care

You may see the thumbnail for the art in this post and think either Dick or I are ill. We are fine! This journal spread is from last year in November 2019. Dick had a weird infection in his elbow and so I went with him to Urgent Care.   The phlebotomist wasn’t really tracking. I […]

In Context: Downsizing My Book Collection

If you click on today’s image you’ll be able to read the text, but depending on your screen size it may be difficult so I’ve transcribed it here, a little “in context leisure reading” for today. (Brush pen warm ups in a Hahnemühle Travel Journal.) My musing ended as you see it, with no conclusions. […]

In Context—Philosophical Questions Arising from Watching Perry Mason

I think this page spread text pretty much says it all. (From my cataract recuperation journals.) What are television shows telling us about their historical time periods? This one is pretty obvious.
