Art Journals & Art

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I like using colors that stand out. Whenever I sit down to draw, I usually do not have an idea in mind and just go with the flow.

I titled this “Womb”. It is done in markers. I like using a variety of tools but my favorites are markers and pastels.

One of my Art Journals. I take an old hardcover book and decorate it to suit it for my writing and art work.

This is my favorite Art Journal I have made so far. It was originally a kids hardcover book titled “Dinotopia”. I like the outline of the girl on the cover.

Inside of the front cover of the Dinotopia Art Journal. I love cutting things out of magazines and pasting them in my journals to add color, inspiration and to keep my dreams alive.

This is still the Dinotopia Art Journal. In each of my art journals, towards the back, I always put in a pocket to keep stickers, clippings from magazines, souvenirs that I can paste or make art with.
