This is a shameless promotion of a wonderful book my wife got me for my birthday. It's called"Drawing from life, the journal as art" it's written by Jennifer New and is a true gem with it's collection of different journals. You get a peek at the very personal journals from such artists as John Copeland, Marcy Kentz, David Byrne, John Clapp and many many more... unfortunately I'm not in the book. But it's still a darn good read and an amazing look. Make sure you check it out and maybe add it to your christmas list this year.
