2019

2019 was a strange year in general, I feel like I didn’t create very much. In January I tried to make a page a day, first with a moleskine journal and then by moving to a postcard diary style – neither lasted long! The rest of the year I made journal pages and art when I felt like it. I created art for Well Inked Box, drew an unusual amount of wrestlers, practiced portraits with inspiration from the Sktchy app, failed to complete the Artist’s Way but kept up with morning pages for a while, failed the Index Card a Day challenge, and documented everyday life such as concerts, current affairs, travel, dreams, and feelings. I also created one portrait as a commissioned piece and three birthday cards for friends/co-workers. Scroll through to view select journal pages and art from 2019, from newest to oldest:

2015

In 2015, my art journal style shifted again. I finished the journal I used to document my move from Wales to California, and then started working exclusively in handmade junk journals. I documented some big moments in 2015 – I traveled around the East Coast of the United States by myself for work, my brother got engaged when visiting me in Los Angeles, and I got married! During the year, I decided I wanted to focus on portraits and I started my Warrior Woman Portrait Project. I also made art for a podcast, created some canvas paintings, and a creepy clown foam head!
