illustrated journal and creative freedom

One of the nicest things about illustrating my journal is that there's never a layout plan, a media selection or a vision of the final composition... there's just creative freedom to tell the story the way I feel it.

your journal drawings are amazing.
i really like the way you manage to merge all elements.
it's one of my main difficulties - to fuse everything together and a page have sense of integrity

great job and ty for sharing

Fabulous! It's always interesting to go back once time has past and see what you were doing and thinking and feeling on a given day. I am always so surprised just how much detail I am able to recall on the days I journal.

Love the spontaneity of your illustrated journal! I have a blank moleskine that I'm just too intimidated to get started on : (
