More art journaling, less Misadventuring

More journal pages instead of a Misadventure! πŸ™‚

This is the cover of the journal I’m doing as part of the “Art as Journal” class I’m taking from Articulture in Minneapolis. I didn’t paint the rainbow bit on the left – it was from a scraps bin at class. The small images were clipped from a book of images at class and I painted around them with watercolors: reading, hockey, black cats, and Minneapolis. Sound like me? πŸ™‚

Two pages for my class.

We have encyclopedias we can cut up, so I made a page about Canada and wrote down some Canada-themed song lyrics.

We were asked to do a page for “mysterious” as our homework one week. I knew that old X-Files postcard would be useful someday!

This two page spread is about being neurodiverse (autistic) in a neurotypical world.
