RR #1 – Pages 11 through 15

These are more scans from the round robin (RR) journal #1, launched in April 2010 for the ArtistsJournals group at Yahoo Groups.

The details in some of these images required very large file sizes.  However, the load time delay (if any) is worth the wait.

The first group of pages were by Dot McQuade:

If you’re inspired by illustrated journals, many books feature related art.  Favorites include True Colors: A Palette of Collaborative Art Journals, and Artists’ Journals and Sketchbooks: Creating Personal Pages, and 1,000 Artist Journal Pages.  (My artwork is included in the latter.)

Though those books aren’t “how-to” guides, and they can be overwhelming for beginners.  However, each book is amazingly visually inspiring.
