My First Art Journal

I have long dabbled in art and every few years, would pull out my copy of Nicolaides, The Natural Way to Draw” and work about 3 weeks and then give up. Yet, I kept going back and trying.  Around 1996, I picked up a spiral bound blank sketch book and started what was to become my first art journal. Here is a page from my drawing phase.

The face parts and heads were drawn in the late 90s.  The Squiddy Zentangle was added more recently, as was the sticker.  I credit Zentangles with getting me back into drawing, which since led me to Jane Davenport and Tamara Laporte. For that, I am very thankful.

With Art Journal a regular posting feature on this blog, I will take more photos from pages in this journal to post. I still go back to this journal and work old pages.
