Extreme Journaling

One of the first online art courses I took was Juliana Coles' Extreme Journalism. She's very into using art as a way to process emotions and explore deeper parts of yourself and that really appealed to me.

Much of the art from that journal is very raw, especially since it was created during a raw time of my life. That's the point of the course and it definitely helped me process a lot of what I was going through.

Looking back, most of it isn't work that I would want to share except with my closest friends. But these are a few pages that feel less vulnerable to me.

I can see that this was a very "messy" way of working that loosened me up in a lot of ways. Messy art is more appealing to me anyway, and this just freed me to do that even more.
