Just Imagine: Creative Storytelling in Journals & Sketchbooks

I have a new feature for patrons which will relate to working in a creative journal and sketchbook! Just Imagine: Creative Storytelling in Journals & Sketchbooks is a ongoing aspect of my Figure of the Imagination project that I would like to share with my patrons and it is open to artists and creative writers of all levels!


Once a month, I will explore developing personal content through journaling and sketching in handmade and custom-altered books. Topics will include not only creating unique constructions, innovative bindery techniques, alternative formats, custom endpapers, surface and border treatments, hand lettering and repurposed accents but also employing sequential storytelling, automatism writing techniques, freeform explorations and hybrid formats to convey an engaging visual tale.


Discussions on nurturing the creative spirit, embracing a multidisciplinary mindset and creating message-driven work will also be discussed. Participants are encouraged to post their own work and to have a dialog about it with the group. This is not a critique based class but a sharing of inspired words and images with like-minded people.

For artists and writers that are looking to push their work to a new level, this monthly creative endeavor will be a valuable, ongoing source for inspiration!
