Check Out This Fun Tip From Artist’s Journal Workshop:

Draw a journal “map” for yourself, right in your book. Some people do an actual imaginary road map; some make a topographical sketch or landscape; some draw a treasure island; some use a tree-of-life imagine; some even make an imaginary game board. Make your map as abstract or detailed as you want. Use whatever imagery works for you.

Your map can explore the journal experience itself (what you want your journal to become), point you toward what you expect to learn in your journaling, or perhaps simply polt your life – all of it or starting from where you are now – with intersections and signposts along the road. Put in the roadblocks or imagined obstacles as well.

Where do you want to go? Do you want to be a better piano player, a more relaxed person, a more disciplined one, a professional illustrator, a good teacher, a better parent or child, a designer? Do you hope to have more confidence in your art or to learn to really feel like an artist? It’s your map – you figure it ou! Think in visual images, use symbols, and have fun!

A Word from the Author:

“What intrigues you about journal keeping? How did you get interested? How long have you wanted to do with your own illustrated journal? Many people wait years to give themselves permission to jump in. So, why did you buy this book?

I’m guessing that the reason, in part, is because you hope for guidelines and inspiration so that you will keep a journal – or, if you’ve tried before and drifted off, so you’ll keep at it once you start. I can promise both guidelines and inspiration from a variety of wonderful journal keepers.

That’s really what this book is all about – discovering what you want and why you’re here. I can’t tell you – no one can. It’s all up to you. But perhaps I, with the help of the wonderful contributors to this book, can assist you along the way.” — Cathy Johnson

What Other Artist’s Are Saying:

“At last! A wonderful Artist's Journal book that actually shows work like I have done for years. I am not crazy after all. I have purchased so many books on Visual Journaling over the last few years that disappoint. Cathy has done an outstanding job in giving a beginner delightful tips and how to instruction. I shall purchase more copies this book for my new Plein Air students who wish to have the joy of their own work and memories to keep and to be proud of. Kudos to Cathy Johnson!” — Maryann Clarin
