The Romantic Movement in French literature

Am just sorting out the office / studio as we are moving this summer and came upon this old book i bought when i was living in Brighton.

It's a really lovely crimson coloured hard backed book, written completely in French. I painted over the pages with emulsion and started using it as a visual journal. Have just added the last page 'Heartburn' as I seem to have had it for days! Will definitely keep this little book going. Might even set it as a project for the new students!


Here's another one from me. not many followers/ contributers. Would be nice to have more. I will keep posting anyway...

Tracey Jane Bradley Journal Submission!!!

Received this journal submission today! 1st submission!!!! WAHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

I've just got back today from a week in Scotland and have been doing lots of weird crazy things in my journal. I scanned a page from it so you can blog it. It might look a bit poop but hey, I guess thats how weird I am to draw things like this.

When travelling to Scotland I just came up with ideas like drawing unrelated objects and muddling them together, well I guess it tells a story but that's the art of it I guess, to assume what story is behind what people create.
I think some of my ideas are really strong and I'm gonna illustrate them tonight with my tablet! :)

I took some amazing photographs too, the scenery there is amazing. If you want to see some photos I took I'll send you some.

Anyway.. I've attached the image.

Speak soon.

Lets get started!

OK, so I have taken an age trying to see if others can post their journal entries direct. The best I can do is for you to email me your entries with a name and any blog's or sites (or anon if you prefer) and I will post them. Spread the word, it could be fun!


Anyway, I am going to kick off with some journal pages of John Copeland ( from the book 'Drawing from Life: The Journal as Art' by Jennifer New. I find John's books absolutely inspirational!!!!
