Paper Journal, Computer Mind: Art Journaling as Art

When I teach art journaling classes, I am often asked, “Aren’t pen and paper obsolete?” That opens the door to an interesting discussion of journaling by handwriting, keyboarding, painting, singing and using a computer.

This video is a wonderful addition to that discussion. It’s not only well done, but the artist, Evelien Lohbeck  , has a wry sense of humor, an incredible imagination, and the persistence to draw it all out.  Lobeck’s website tells you about her as an artist, (many of the links no longer work) but her Youtube channel all well-worth watching.

I loved the toast sequence best. Or maybe the photocopy sequence. No, no, the mirror was great. Well, OK, the entire idea of journal as part of all five senses is the whole idea of journaling in one great vision.
