My intro pages from 14 Artist Journals.

Spread 0114 - Freedom of the Bird

“Freedom of the Bird” 

one of my spread’s from the book.

Over at Orly’s Blog her drawing ends today, so I decided to host a drawing of my own! Yes, another opportunity for you to win an inscribed copy from Orly and I. Leave a comment here, enter only once please. I will select a winner 21 February in the afternoon.

Here is what Orly Avineri herself has to say about “14 Artist Journals.”:

14 Artist Journals is a wondrous grouping of journal pages from fourteen impassioned individuals. In it I reveal the delicate worlds of creative types for whom visual journaling had become a spiritual practice, an honest and raw expression of who they are. The book sustains my belief that all individuals have the capacity to make changes that are needed in their lives through the act of creating and to find new ways to advance their physical, emotional, and relational well-being. It makes known that art journaling is most definitely one such way.”

I am so proud that Orly selected six of my art journal spreads to be included in the book. I love all the artists selected. Some of the artists I do know and some are new to me as well. The artists include: Nathalie NayerTracy V. MooreErin Faith AllenSeth ApterJuliana ColesMaya DunskyPnina Gold,Jesse RenoBrian KasstleHana KlosGil AvineriRachel Urista, Darcy Ruth Ritzau, and Vered Gersztenkorn.

To purchase the book  and support Orly best by ordering it through her CreateSpace eStore
-Much less supportive (-: nevertheless is available on Amazon, visit to take a “Look Inside”. It is available world wide now.

    This book looks amazing! Congrats on being featured! Does it feel at all vulnerable to have your work out there like that? Just curious since my journaling reveals that vulnerable side of myself. I guess that’s why I love art journaling so much!

    Hey Brian,
    Congratulations on being selected for the book. I couldn’t think of someone more appropriate to be featured in a book like this as I believe you are a true artist of our times. Not only do you make art you share your knowledge and experience. I found you as I was looking for other guys who had similar interests in art and crafts. You have really guided me and helped me find my art legs. Thank you. Keep up the great work. Always look forward to your posts.

    I went to Amazon and peeked into Orly’s book. I love her statement to “Create, not produce.”
    Brian, I envy your creative eye, I think mine fell in the mud after childhood and never managed to climb back out. You do good art. Keep your eye open.
