THE FINALE: INTERNATIONAL FAKE JOURNAL MONTH

April 29, 2014

Roz Stendahl invented INTERNATIONAL FAKE JOURNAL MONTH,  an activity which encourages participants to engage in visual journal work as someone other than oneself. Lots of information can be found here: INTERNATIONAL FAKE JOURNAL BLOG.

This month I explored imagery in panels using this year’s theme : ” NO EXPLANATIONS “.

I am no good at dating things.
Some days I did only one panel, other days I could do a page if the idea was clear.
My character drew her dreams, her family history, band posters, and ads for a local diner.

BELOW YOU CAN SEE THE RESULTS! In keeping with the theme, I’m leaving the explanations to a minimum.

INTERNATIONAL FAKE JOURNAL MONTH: NO EXPLANATIONS…

April 6, 2014

Roz Stendahl invented INTERNATIONAL FAKE JOURNAL MONTH,  an activity which encourages participants to engage in visual journal work as someone other than oneself. Lots of information can be found here: INTERNATIONAL FAKE JOURNAL BLOG.

Last year I participated and my initial choices entailed too much work. You can see the my 2013 FAKE JOURNAL HERE.

The theme for 2014 is NO EXPLANATIONS.

I am keeping things very simple:

• The style is one I can do quickly, and is much more graphic than I would use in my regular journal.

• The tools are simply india inks and Pro-White.

• I am working in panels because this is an approach that is foreign to me for the most part. My journals are usually just collections of drawings, and can have a very random feeling in style and content.

• The images are stream of consciousness, generated by a character who is in her 20’s and sees the world through the format of a graphic novel. Anything can end up in her visual journal, including her friends, her work, her odd ball dreams, and  her old photos.

• I can accomplish a lot in 30 minutes with a brush and ink.

• I have no idea what will happen from panel to panel. The month will reveal what lies in store.
