    A very absorbing interview Brian…I am given much faith by your wish to inspire more male types to engage in the fascinating practice of art journaling, you are definitely a pioneer. Also I am with you on the mission to summon more respect for the ART in ART-journaling. The journal is the richest most receptive and giving canvas, ideal for the expression of anyone’s creativity and connectedness to all that is human.

    Congratulations on a great interview Brian! I love everything you spoke of, from journal artists deserving more respect as ARTISTS to seeing more men journal to learning about all the things you love to do beyond journaling. All articulate and well expressed!! =-)

    I must say your statements on seeing more men journal is inspiring me to see if I can get my dear boyfriend interested in making a journal of our travels WITH ME! Thanks for the inspiration Brian and I hope to see you at Orly’s!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment about my Week as Art and congrats on your interview. I’ll have to revisit your week as art. A local friend of mine also taught at Journal Fest- Lisa Cheney-Jorgenson.
