Keeping a Visual Journal

Keeping a visual journal, a sketchbook or creating an artist’s book can be a great way to explore a technique, engage in a new medium, or just play. Jody’s Coptic Binding workshop is a perfect candidate for making your artist’s book. Coptic bindings lie flat when open so that you can draw, mark, or paint on the pages without fighting the mechanics of the structure.

I love the idea that a book you create can become a receptacle for your thoughts, expressions and exploration. For more thoughts and ideas about artist’s books, look here.  For additional ways to fill your blank pages, check out the Image Transfer workshop or Jody’s Orizomegami class.
