Some time ago I wrote about my daily drawing. Anna Denise takes this daily-drawing-thing to a whole new level! Since 2007 she’s been keeping an art journal, and it’s so inspiring! I love the way she tells her stories, and the cute drawings she makes. And the best thing is: She doesn’t mind sharing how to start your own art journal. How sweet is that? Here is the start of a three-page tutorial, which discusses everything from how to choose your topic to the pens and pencils she uses. Great!
Now I’m not necessarily planning on starting my own art journal (never say never though), but I like looking at her blog nonetheless. It’s inspiring and funny to read. And hearing what materials someone else uses for illustrations is always interesting. I always learn a lot by looking at others and reading how they go about their work. Live and learn, I say!
(By the way: ‘No pictures?’ I hear you ask. Well, Anna Denise disabled downloading her scans of her art journals, so I’d better respect that. But don’t worry, you can see all her work on Flickr, right here!)
