Spread 0069 – Graffiti Journal Cover

Graffiti Journal Cover

 Sept 05 2009 to March 21, 2012.

Spray Paint, Stickers, Press on numbers, Krill Paint, Sharpie poster paint pens, Signao Gel pens, Stabilo Woody pencils, Montana Acrylic paint markers, Sharpie China markers.

Here is another visual journal cover. It may never be “finished” but here it is in the present moment. I started working on it back in 2009, I left that journal a while I worked on my XL Moleskine journal. It is actually a Papaya – Sabrina Ward Harrison journal, I don’t even think you can purchase them any longer. I have another one, I tend to purchase journals in duplicate so I can have one to work in while the other dries, you can view the other cover in this post here. I like my covers to evolve over time, I like to think of them as a preview or a tease as to what is inside. I add little bits and paint and images here and there as I go along, every mark, image, phrase has meaning to me. I still have about six blank spread pages inside but I think the cover is about as done as it gets. It is currently 72 degrees here in Long Beach and yes the sun is out and I am headed outside to play in this journal in my favorite spot on my patio table. Who knows where I’ll go. Enjoy your day.

    It is very cool Brian. And I love the idea that you let the journal cover evolve over time.
