“Serious art is born from serious play.”

(Julia Cameron-An Artists Way)

I think this is especially true of my sketchbook. It is not necessarily where I do art journaling…rather, these are places I work out ideas and create space for exploration.

A few months ago, I picked up one brown marker and started filling in a blank journal. I had to find my own way to become comfortable with writing. I found that I am naturally drawn to and work well with symbols, backwards writing and upside down writing. Words I know are present, but a bit difficult to read. I know what is there, but it is not meant for everyone to read, more to experience the feelings from it.  Using limited colors on a few pages, I concealed and revealed as I wished…

More flowed through me than I had expected or been quite prepared for… I have filled a sketchbook in little over 3 months. Unheard of for me. Until now.

Finding this complimentary journaling practice has been a deeply enriching experience. In order to honor this practice, I am starting “Sketchbook Sundays” where each Sunday I will post a page from my sketchbook, sharing with you a sneek peek into the pages of my sketchbooks.

I am looking forward to hearing about your sketchbook practices. Do you have separate sketchbooks? Are they themed? Do you write or just doodle? Do you use them for springboards for your art? Would love to hear about your practices, please comment below!
