Tumblr of the Week: Adventure Journal



Today's Tumblr of the Week hasn't updated in a while, but it has enough cool content on it to share anyway. It's the adventure journal of Kailey, who tried to combat her shoddy memory span by drawing the events of her life every day. I love that it's really just a diary detailing what she did on a daily basis sprinkled with illustrative doodles. Some days there's only a few lines about how she feels and one thing she did. Others go into longer detail about all her activities and what specific drinks or food she had, to the point where the text has to squish itself around the drawings.

It's endearing to read all the little details that she decided were important enough to draw down so that she could remember it years later, like drinking hot chocolate after getting yelled at by a bus driver.

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, follow Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr for even more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on there!

It's The Small Things, Right?

You know those kind of days where nothing much seems to happen? Get up, do some stuff, fall asleep. How do you muster up a diary entry on days like those?

I like how Giada Ganassin can make those kind of "nothing" days seem special. She keeps a calendar journal and doodles a little detail about every day of the month. Things like a nice nap on the couch, or buying an avocado for every day of the week - the small stuff that makes life feel good!

A Lovely Collection of Thoughts

Have you seen Andrea Wan's Mini Journal? well, if you haven't, I have to tell you it is a must in your next inspiration search. She made a mini journal containing a collection of 4"x6" drawings inspired in thoughts and ideas of her own. Her project is full of creepy and adorable images. One of the best sketchbooks I've seen lately. It is a beautiful project made to be seen and enjoyed page by page.

Ema's Scrapbook



This will do you some good, I promise.

Press play and take eight minutes of your day to sit back and enjoy the inside of ema's sketchbook as nail-polished finger tips guide you from page to page -- through leaves, space, love, animals, mushrooms, patterns, landscapes and more.

Showcase #4: Draw Your Destination

So many of us sit idle everyday dreaming of our next travel to somewhere fantastical and new. I know I do, and this week's showcase will have you yearning for that next adventure even more. Imagine being given a passport to travel anywhere you like, real or just in your imagination. Now simply draw it for us all to see. The destination is open for you to define as you wish. It could be as nearby as your local street market or as distant as planet Venus.

Share your drawn destination with us and you could win the perfect accessory for your next escapade, the one-of-a-kind Field Journal Notebook by Tom Bihn (a $75 value). A useful tool for any artist on the go, it's essentially a compact, portable, weather-proof, zippered notebook for doodling, journaling or sketching. It's made with love right here in the U.S. of A and it is the culmination of countless hours of design.

We just got one of our very own and must admit, this really is perfect for any urban sketcher. Read on for the complete guidelines to Showcase #4

Cut It Out

I love the whole cut out, diorama look. It works so well in sketchbooks, journals as well as finished pieces. I found Steve Simpson's work in a 3x3 illustration annual. Then I hunted him down on the internet and saw his Absolut campaign. This is inspiring me to do a diorama illustration project. Oh for more time!
