Using Your Journal as an Art Tool—A Meeting of the MCBA Journal Collective

Above: The progression from a journal thumbnail to a finished painting (shown later in this post). In the journal pictured above (which happens to be a Rag and Bone 8 x 10.5 inch journal) you'll see a thumbnail sketch of a bird flying out of an odd pipe. (Top of the journal's right-hand page.) Years after sketching this thumbnail I enlarged it with the photocopier (black and white enlargement behind the journal), did some color studies and tests (left, loose sheet), and when partially finished I scanned the painting, printed it out and used an acetate overlay to add details to the bird (right loose sheet). Click on the image to view an enlargement.

Monday, July 20, from 7 to 9 p.m. the Minnesota Center for Book Arts Journal Collective will meet to share ways the members have used their journals as inspiration for other artworks.
