I am absolutely thrilled to be telling you about a new book, Artist's Journal Workshop: Creating Your Life in Words and Pictures by Cathy (Kate) Johnson. Most of us know her as the (Quicksilver Workaholic and she is!!) Kate's been journaling a long time and realized the importance it has played in her life as an artist and writer. She put together a class last year and received an overwhelmingly positive response.
Kate decided a book was needed and reached out to 28 artists who journal and write as well. Folks like Hannah Hinchman and Danny Gregory, just to name a few! I am so very pleased to say that I was asked to join in and some of my work and thoughts will also be included in the book.
As usual, Kate went above and beyond the call and came up with waaaaaaaaaaay to much material for a 144-page book so she has started a blog—to share the interviews she's done, the material that didn't make it into the book, inspiration to start your own journal and a "go-to" place for those of us who have questions on how someone else has journaled.
I hope you'll join me in congratulating Kate on an awesome book (to be out in June 2011) and check out the new blog!!
See you there!
