I read the book from cover to cover this morning with my morning coffee. (Okay, I was in the chair for two hours, but the coffee was there, too). Even though I was familiar with many of the techniques shown and discussed, Eric and Dave put a new perspective on visual journaling. They are educators, and so am I, so this appealed to me. They also use very practical materials and discuss various techniques with those easy to carry and easy to clean up materials. Image transfers are also demonstrated, which is always nice to be reminded of, because they just look so interesting in a journal. These two artist-educators keep it simple, yet interesting. Oh, yes, they also inspire, and share pages from their own journals. You can see more of their work on their blog here. Support the artist-educators and be inspired to keep a visual record of your own life through this book.
