Getting Back into Journaling

I was born into a family that encouraged artistic expression and throughout my elementary years I spent a lot of time drawing. Even though I gave up on art as a practical career in middle school, I kept on filling the margins of my notebooks with lots of doodles. 

  The way I've drawn art over the years has had many shifts, and I finally let myself really get back into after I found my medium of henna in 2003 (read about my rite of passage into henna here!) . I would listen to podcasts and draw and draw. 

  Examples of drawn art from the past few years:

  Recently I had a massive positive change in how much I draw for pleasure. I was listening to another podcast, an interview with Ryder Carroll, and was inspired to get back into journaling.   Check out his website - all it takes is a blank notebook and pen, and on his website he has videos with all his secrets on how he organizes his journal. It's absolutely brilliant. 


  After using his system, I found a deep sense of relief as I drew in the "margins" of my journal, filling it with the art that in the past would be on scraps of paper floating around. In fact, I had no idea how scattered I was with all my ideas all over and this method has helped me bring it all into one place where I can clearly see my priorities. 

  Also, I recently heard that a particular artist had more time to make art after he spent less time "online". So I looked into this, and read a fascinating book by Cal Newport called Digital Minimalism. (check out an interview with Cal here! ) It's true - going "off line" for a month gave me a tremendous amount of time to create art along with a lot of other stuff that's important to me.
