"Artist" Art Journal Zine
The cover was a collaboration, I'm not sure who started it but I know Jules added the quote and the paint splatters for sure, and I outlined the quote with neon gel pens.
Both pages above are mine. I doodled "sunbursts" around the canvas image, which I ripped out of a magazine.
Page on the left by Jules, right by me.
Misty recently wrote a blog post all about the reasons why she makes things. I thought it was a fabulous list, so I printed it out and used some of her reasons in this zine.
The marbled paper and the black doodles were already on the page on the left, I added the quote and then did the page on the right.
Clare created the page above. It reminds me of space, so I used one of my favorite Star Trek quotes, about crayons.
Vanessa (I believe) started the page above with the fun paint design. I had these paint brush stickers I've been dying to use somewhere and this seemed like a great page for it.
And my last page. A classic Katie drawing, with a pretty watercolor background.
I had this zine last, before sending it to Misty. I actually love being last in collaborations, because I can see all of the already made pages and add doodles to them. :)
