If you are reading this entry on the blog (not in a reader), then you see the obvious! Change is in the air! I wanted to make things really simple around here. And, I wanted to really get back to my I AM ART mantra and share all the things we are into, not just art journaling.
This was a struggle for me. I know many people discovered us because of our books and I feared that If I changed things then people would wonder if Karen and I had a fight, or if I was not going to journal again, or just be confused. There's no fight (we are texting as I write this! We never fight unless there is only one cookie left!). I still art journal (expect to see more). The reality is that I have been an artist my entire life and I want to share all of those art projects with you. The journaling books were an amazing part of our lives and we love the books so much. And we cherish all the relationships we formed with art journalers during the process. It has been nine years since Visual Chronicles came out (and Journal Revolution quickly after that) and I am ready to inspire and share our lives and art in a different way. I think the different way mostly applies to how I feel about being free from worrying about people asking if we are going to write another journaling book. Writing books was a project we very happily did, but it is not my passion. I have no idea if we will ever write a book again but I do know that I am excited about making art -and I am excited about making funny lists with my seester- and I am excited about treats from Trader Joe's- and I am excited about traveling- and I am excited to share inspiration from my life as an artist (not just as an art journaler) without limits. I am excited about combining all my art projects into one space- really mixing the media of art and life.
And of course, I am excited to share the photos of all the cats! See, I have changed a lot in nine years! I HAVE CATS! I still love exclamation points, so things have not changed too much.
I did not want to wait until the site was perfectly redesigned to use it. I am not a fan of waiting until anything is perfect. There's no perfect in art! I will still be posting while I work on the site and things may change before your eyes as I work out the kinks.
Let the embracing of change begin!
