8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 5 2011
Format: Paperback
Length: 0:55 Mins
Artist's Journal Workshop is a wonderful book for anyone looking to start a sketch journal. It's a 144-page paperback with beautifully laid out pages.

It's packed with lots of tips on finding ideas, and from there, you can discover which style suits you. This book really brings across how fun sketching can be.

There are 27 artists who share their sketch pages in this book. Some of them are Danny Gregory, Nina Johansson, Liz Steel, Lapin, Cathy Johnson herself, of course, and many more. They also share their insights.

Since this book is about journaling, the examples are mostly about illustrating what you see. It can be drawing people, places, animals or food. It's very inspiring to check out all the artists' work, even the seemingly mundane stuff look interesting when illustrated.

Highly recommended, especially to sketchbook lovers.

Discover the joy of art journaling July 5 2011

great for anyone who wants to keep & create any kind of art journal!!! July 28 2011
By MJB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book gives any journal keeper or wanna be journal keeper some great ideas to help inspire you or figure out exactly what you want to do with your sketchbook journals. The book includes suggestions for travel journaling, daily journaling, nature journaling, spiritual etc and not just samples of what others have done, but questions for the reader to explore and think about to help develop individual journaling that means something to you. I especially love the "Try This" exercises the author included in each chapter such as "describe your day," "abstract the scene," "travel-record the details," "sketch family mementos," "map family moves" and lots of other fun ideas to explore.

While showing some useful, beautiful and inspirational examples of ways other experienced and talented artists have kept journals, Ms. Johnson's book expands on the examples and gives tips for developing content as well as some guidance on materials that are easy to use and portable. She presents things very simply for beginners, in a completely non-intimidating way. However, those who have some art experience will appreciate the fact that she didn't over do the "how to paint with watercolors" section, but rather includes a discussion on how to use a variety of materials that work together and are easy just to throw in your purse or art bag. I haven't ever used colored pencils or acrylics because they seem too complicated of a medium to work properly for me, but after reading her suggestions I may experiment with some of these other mediums for fun in small sketches in my journal.

Ms. Johnson's book is easy for anyone at any level to use, skim it for ideas or read it cover to cover. It's a beautiful book and one that is clearly going to be a new classic on the topic of sketchbook journaling. Others I highly recommend are any of the Danny Gregory books, Everyday Matters, The Creative License, and An Illustrated Life; The Decorated Journal by Gwen Diehn; Keeping a Nature Journal by Clare Walker Leslie and Charles Roth. Also recommend DVD Beginning Watercolor Journaling by Gay Kraeger and Christina Lopp. Drawing from Life, the Journal as Art by Jennifer New has some interesting examples of how a variety of journal keepers approach and keep a journal. Highly recommend the Urbansketchers website and blog, [...] for excellent examples of art journaling from all corners of the world. Cathy Johnson is one of my favorite contributors to that website.

The BEST Book I've Found on Sketchbook Journaling July 8 2011
By Leslie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm an avid sketcher and am always on the lookout for another book on sketching and art journaling. Cathy Johnson's "Artist's Journal Workshop" is not just more of the same - it has so much more content than any other title on my bookshelf, and the pages are loaded with inspiring artwork showing a wide variety of techniques and styles. I loved every page! I enjoyed it so much that I wanted the experience of reading it to last, so I rationed the pages and only allowed myself to read a few every day. As I saw the end coming closer, I kept thinking, "No, not yet!" When I read that last page, I did something I've never done before - I turned the book over and started again at the beginning! I'll be rereading this book for years to come and learning something new in each reading, I'm sure. I'm already putting into practice some of the great ideas presented in the book. THANK YOU, CATHY!!!

Inspirational! June 30 2011
By Marva Plummer-bruno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an awesome book! I've painted in watercolors for years but just started journaling a few years ago. This is an informative and inspirational book, with new things to try, information on paints and watercolor pencils and more! I highly reccomend it if you're just starting out or if you've been painting for years!
