“Based on her own 40 years' experience in keeping an artist's journal, Cathy Johnson knows that an artist's creative life can benefit from written and visual explanations and experiments. Over the course of this book, you will benefit from the tips, techniques and exercises that will make your artist's journals your own. You will also discover how to use your journal to celebrate any occasion or milestone, work through a problem or creative block, plan future works, sketch from life and experiment with new materials or techniques. With 24 contributors from around the world there is a variety of styles and perspectives throughout the book, and with 15+ exercises you will learn to personalize your journal in a variety of ways.”I am thrilled to have been asked to contribute artwork to this amazing project. From the beginning, I’ve thought that Kate’s idea for this book was right on target, and that a lot of people would benefit from her treatment of this varied subject. I’ve long held that a sketchbook can be a work on art in-and-of itself, so a new book expressly about that process scratches me where I itch.
