The visual journals of Michael Bell


Michael Bell is an art instructor who advocates developing creative skills through the use of a visual journal.

“Visual journaling is a way to record life’s experiences, feelings, emotional reactions, or one’s own inner voice visually and verbally. Sometimes words alone fail to describe what we feel inside. Visual journaling is a creative way to respond to an internal, very personal situation in traditional sketchbooks, or through non-traditional works of art that include both text and imagery.”

    It is great when you find someone like this who speaks to you. For me it was when I found suziblu and I have been a lot more productive since then.
    I have a journal now too and I write or draw things that come into my head that I want to keep in mind. I’ve used everything from watercolour pencils to crayons, to pen or pencil or stamps, stuck things in, whatever I wanted to do, and then I try to take that confidence over to what I want to make with textiles. It doesn’t matter what media you use, make art every day!

    And guess how I found suziblu… via YOU! https://www.pintangle.com/journal/2007/9/23/suzi-blu.html
