When we first launched Art Journaling three years ago, we were confident that it would be well-received as a semiannual publication. We knew there was no shortage of materials, and we knew that there was a demand for a magazine that focuses solely on the subject. What we didn’t know was just how popular of an art form it would become.
Each time a submissions deadline for Art Journaling would approach, our office was flooded with stacks of gorgeous art journals, each one unique in its own way. After selecting the pages we needed to fill the magazine, we found ourselves with great art journals we just didn’t have the room for. We knew we had to do something.
After much deliberation, we made the decision to make Art Journaling a quarterly magazine. There is just too much great material not to increase its frequency. The first quarterly issue of Art Journaling will debut in January, with new departments, a deeper look at the artistic process, a focus on book-binding and journal-making, and great artist profiles.
Here’s even more good news: There’s still time to be a part of it. That’s right. If you can submit your journal(s) to us by Monday, September 29, 2011, you’ll be included in our selection for the January issue.
