Honored and Thrilled!

Look what came in the mail today!

In my hot little hands is my very own copy of Cathy (Kate) Johnson's new book... 'Artist's Journal Workshop, Creating your life in words and pictures.'

I'm both honored and thrilled that Kate asked me to be a part of this project and proud to say five of my journal illustrations are included within its pages.

I'm also a contributing author on the companion blog: Artist's Journal Workshop.

I can't wait to dive in and read every word. Just thumbing through, the content is astounding. North Light Books did a fantastic job. But the 'Best' award goes to Kate for all her hard work, dedication, and generous spirit. I know I can speak for all 26 international artists, invited to be a part of this project, when I say "Thank you, Kate, for creating a perfect book that not only shows how much fun, rewarding and therapeutic keeping an artist's journal is but also how to create one of your own."

Don't miss your own adventure - this wild ride around the sun!  To peek inside and order a copy of your own, click here.

I hear that North Lights Books is a super fabulous publisher to work with. Another fine example.
