Teesha Moore's Art & Life

This past Friday, I received a complimentary copy of Teesha Moore's Art and Life magazine where images of my journal pages took up nearly three pages. I am grateful to Teesha for including my pages. I know that she has a lot of fans out there.

It's an interesting story (at least I think it is) of how she ended up publishing some of my pages. Back in the spring, I was searching the web for new and different opportunities for the Journal Fodder Junkies, and I have know about Teesha's Artfest for many years. I emailed her, told her a little about what Dave and I do, and asked about getting an application to be instructors for Artfest 2009. She emailed back saying that she was dropping the info in the mail and asked if I had a website. I steered her to the blog and to my personal Flickr page, and she emailed asking if I would like to be published in her magazine. I sent her some images, and lo and behold, three glossy pages of my stuff. I know that the magazine has led at least one person to the blog and ultimately to the website, and I'm hoping that it will help get the word out about the Journal Fodder Junkies.

Thanks very much, Teesha.

Dave and I have some big news to share. Some of you may know that we have submitted a proposal for a book on visual journals to several publishers. Well, after several months, we have just learned that our proposal has been accepted by North Light Books. North Light publishes a lot of books about art and has published several books on visual journals over the last few years. So, we are going to be published, and we owe a big debt of gratitude to editor Tonia Davenport who put a lot of hard work into tweaking our proposal and presenting it to the board of senior editors.

Now there are still a lot of details to work out and things are in the earliest of stages, but as of now the book (yet untitled) will likely come out in the Spring of 2010. It seems like a long time away, but as I have been assured on several occasions, nothing in the book business moves swiftly. So if you are interested in the book but can't wait that long, we do have our booklet as mentioned in a previous post.
And that leads me to our other news, the JFJ website has been updated and tweaked, and now can accept online orders for the booklet as well as other merchandise and art prints. We have set up features through PayPal that will allow for the acceptance of all major credit cards and PayPal accounts. Also we would appreciate any feedback about the website in order to make it more informative, more interactive, and easier to use. Please email us.

Thanks for all the support, and we will post updates about the book as they come up.

Journal Fodder Junkies Booklet for Sale

As some of you know, we are in the process of writing a book on the visual journal that really shares a lot of ideas, techniques, and concepts to use in the visual journal. We have actually sent it off to a few publishers, and hopefully, someone will want to publish it. In the meantime, though, we have self-published a pared-down version that we have sold at conferences, workshops and seminars. So now we are trying to make the booklet available to a wider audience. The booklet is only $15.00 plus shipping and handling.
Each booklet is 37 pages and full color. Each booklet is color laser-printed on quality 28lb paper with card stock front and back covers, and each booklet is bound with a comb binding.
If interested in purchasing a booklet, please email me - just go to View Full Profile, and we'll work out the details. If you have any questions, please email me as well.
