Okay, my game is off (for good reason, another story) but I did this baaaad sketch because I have to shake it off and that can shift my mojo. I share the bad stuff so someone starting doesn’t feel badly … Continue reading
I’ve been journaling for 50 years, art journaling for forty (first architectural ideas, now art). I’ve tried many journals before finding my perfect journal. I bought the Chinese Journals (left, and btw, review in links) from Chinatown in San Fransisco … Continue reading
