Gridded Moleskine in B&W
The pages in this journal are pretty fluid - I really never know what will happen until it happens. They evolve over the course of several days; I have several pages in process at any given time. This is like building an interlocking puzzle. Each time I open the journal, I see an unfinished page with fresh perspective. It's intriguing to see concepts and symbols emerge at random intersections. The subject matter comes from my imagination, from a visual spark in the room, product packaging or images cut from magazines [tucked in the back of the journal in a pocket]. For example, my daughter's variegated bamboo knitting yarn wrapped in a ball inspired a graphical pie chart; knots inspired doodles.
I keep working on a page until it seems visually balanced, whether it is truly balanced... no earthly idea! It's about the act of drawing.
