Spread 138 – Cover Story
17 August 2013
Vintage and personal papers, my hand made papers, metal tape, black gesso, matte medium, Nova color acrylic paint, Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
The covers for my art journals are as important to me as the art is inside the journal. They reflect a specific time in my life and evolve over the course of working in the journal. They change, they get grungy, and splattered, just the way I LOVE them. This one is just about perfect. It is just about me.

This is one of my favorite things that you have done. Thanks for always sharing.
Love the contrasting colors and values, especially on the back cover, Brian. Amazing visual richness!
Yes, I would say rich too, and it’s so cool that you don’t neglect the cover, that you make it alluring. Nice to see that you’ve been busy.
