The Makings of an Illustrated Journal (or Call Me Completely Looney)

The little studio is buzzing - and will soon get even busier. The finished journal pages are at the printers and I am waiting for a proof copy. Until then, there is still plenty to do. Many of you have inquired about the process of getting one of these little art books completed, so in the days to come I will show you the work in progress.

Of course there are many delightful days reliving the journey and pulling rough sketches together. Some of the pages were done on site in Israel. Most were completed after returning home. If you have taken Precept's Israel Study Tour you know it is intense! You definitely get your money's worth. It is truly a study tour, leaving little time to paint or draw during the day. But it is a joy to relive those precious days by perusing photos, reviewing notes and designing journal pages from them.

                                         
Hour upon hour in the studio playing hard at work.
Many days the studio looked like this! 

Then....hours of computer work. The rough texture of watercolor paper, the over-spatter of  paint, an occasional smudge, eraser marks - all gets tidied up. If there is an occasional oops, well - not to worry, it is just me keeping life real.

As I await my print order, I've been deciding on cover material. Just what do I want the exterior of the journal to look like? Ideally, it would be full, worn leather - like an old travel journal. But I think some nice papers would also give a pretty cool look. These papers arrived today and there is a whole lot of love in this little studio.
Loving these papers. 2009 Journal, right center.
