Four years. Before that I journaled for many years, and as an artist have always kept a sketchbook - but I found out they are both very different from art journaling.How long have you kept a journal?
One day I decided to make a kind of scrap book. I wasn't thinking the words 'scrap book' but of having a place to put images that attracted me. I began to glue down mainly newspaper images that I liked and add some writing. It didn't look like much but felt so different than writing a journal or working in my sketchbook. It was nourishing in a way that I hadn't experienced before. I remember being very excited but not really sure why.Has it always been an art journal, or did it start out as something else?
I think all artists keep sketchbooks. I always have. But I use it mainly for preparation sketches and compositional ideas; it isn't personal like an art journal.Do you also keep a sketchbook or other work book?
Pretty regularly. I always have a few going at the same time. Right now I have three art journals, and I do something in one of them most days.How often do you write/draw/work in your journal?
