Different Ways to Journal

Ever wonder what happens when you retire a tracking dog? They don’t every really retire. Up until her death, two years later, almost exactly, Dottie was still showing me she was happy to show me all the things in the vicinity of our walk routes that had human scent on them. The above photo is […]

Using Your Journal to Ask Questions

A journal is for asking questions. You can ask visually, and you can also ask written questions. To me, often the most interesting thing about my journal pages is not what I drew on the page or what I noticed as I went through my day and captured visually, but the questions and thoughts I […]

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 […]

In Context: Playing with Faces while Making Soup

My pen was running out of ink and then I had some left over paint—it’s fun what you get up to when you are using little bits of time between doing another task. (The soup was great! Though I only stayed up to put it away for the next day.) This is from an 8.5 […]

How To Use Space on Your Page Spread

This is a follow up of Wednesday’s post. Here’s an example of my experimenting with brush pen and ink wash on a page in a Japanese Lined journal.  I’d like to tell you this is cropped because there is text on the recto page that is private, but in reality it’s blank there, just more […]

Accessories for Today’s Virtual Minnesota State Fair Sketch-In

Today at 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. CDT I’ll be live streaming a sketching demo. It’s a Virtual State Fair Sketch-In because I won’t be at the Fairgrounds—the Minnesota State Fair was cancelled this year due to the Pandemic. I’m glad we are staying safe but I’m always at the Fair on this day in […]

A Virtual Minnesota State Fair “Sketch IN” Saturday, August 29, 2020

Look, if this were any other year you wouldn’t be getting one post from me on this day, let alone two—I’d be two days into my Minnesota State Fair Sketching experience. Something I’ve been doing every year for over 25 years. The pandemic means we aren’t going to have the Minnesota State Fair this year. […]

What Kind of a Wise Ass Are You?

Look, I’m known as a bit of a wise-ass. No, let’s be honest, I’m a total-wise-ass-pain-in-the-butt-[expletive-deleted]. As such I really respond well to the wise-assery of others.
