WIP: Moleskine Postal Notebook Process Video

So, long story short: I spent much of my young adulthood watching art journal process videos, and now that snailmail has become an almost equally strong obsession, I’ve been yearning to find mail art process videos. Pinterest can only satiate one for so long! Ahem, well, there seems to be a deep chasm in YouTube for this kind of thing, so along with my future videos on notebooks galore (I have a series buzzing ’round my head called Notebook Extravaganza with at least four different parts already), I wanted to share my process for embellishing stationery for penpals.

I began filming today, and here’s a wee screenshot of the making of the first few pages. I’ll show the initial decoration (as pictured above), as well as what it looks like once I’ve filled all the text in and what I do to finish it all off. I really hope you’ll enjoy this video, and I expect its completion later this week. ❤

Inking for Inktober

inktober22I decided to participate in Inktober despite the fact that it’s pretty much over. I really underestimated how challenging a medium ink is to work in. I’ve been working on this since yesterday, and it has been absolutely killing my hand. It still isn’t finished!

Gradients of Water and Color

After receiving the biggest postcard ever from Sweden, I decided that it’d be so delightful to design my own. This art has taken a far more abstract, surreal direction than most of my work, but I enjoy playing with watercolors and color so! Here’s what I’ve got so far.
