This may sound a bit wacky but there is a group on YouTube that features videos of art journals. A video camera records someone turning each page of their visual journal. The video format provides a sense of seeing scribbles and notations within the overall context of a working visual journal.
Videos document the process of keeping a visual journal in a far more realistic manner as compared to carefully selected scans or photos of pages. Photos of selected pages can present work in visual journals as finished pieces in their own right. The impression that each page is finished, nothing is a mistake and everything is controlled can lead people to feel intimidated and they never try keeping one themselves. The creative process is never neat controlled and linear. There are many false starts and ideas half explored with a story that unfolding in haphazard way. Viewing the whole journla in context the viewer takes away a far more honest impression of the journal and as a result it is far more interesting.
