Art Journal, cont.

Back in November I mentioned my burgeoning 2D art skills, and the Monthly Notebook group on Reddit.

Since then I’ve done a lot more art, and I’m going to share some of my drawings with you in a few days.  But first, I wanted to share these Imgur albums with you.

The first is the completed “Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost” notebook.  All 166 pages of work that I’m proud of, and work that I’d rather pretend never happened.

That book was 166 A4 pages and took me four months to complete.  While I was working on that book I was fairly sure that I was doing a lot of rainbows, and a lot of unicorns.  But when I’d finished the book and I was flipping through it at New Year I did a count, and there wasn’t nearly as many as I’d thought.  So for January I decided that I needed a book that was entirely unicorns and/or rainbows.

It’s only a small book, but every single one of the 38 pages has either a unicorn or a rainbow.  Most pages have both.

I’ve been enjoying my foray into the art world.  I’ve found myself reaching for a sketchbook more than anything else these days.  A lot of the pieces in these journals I plan on scanning or replicating, some for display and some for sale.
