Art Journals & Sketchbooks

Art Journals

There are always journals, sketchbooks and bundles of paper around me to mop up ideas, to catch overheard words, splashes of color, snippets and bits.

They are home to the offcuts and the trimmings from the ongoing projects orbiting my workspace.

These are all idea seeds which, if not caught between the pages of a book, could vanish forever. Instead, this is where they germinate.

Brooklyn Art Library is home to over 41,000 sketchbooks from over 130 different countries.  

I’ve contributed a book to this collection each year since 2018.

If you find yourself in Brooklyn, you can view these books in real life. But if that’s too far to travel, you can see a flip through of my sketchbooks right here instead.

Book of Days

In mid 2020 I began working in a gigantic 600 page sketchbook.

My plan is to add a double page spread every week.  At this rate the book will span several years. Already it’s evolving as a visual diary, filling up with the oddities circulating in my thoughts alongside snippets of words and ideas passing through.

Periodically I’ll make some flip through videos like these.

Postcard Prints

Each year I publish a series of art postcards, digitally collaged from the pages of my art journals.

Available individually or in sets, there are over 25 designs in my Etsy store.
