Circle Journal - Jessica's Journal 1st spread


A couple of days ago a parcel arrived for me from California. It was such a treat, especially as I was washing a double sleeping-bag, grape-treading style in the bath at the time. What a great reward to open up the box and find Jessica's journal:


So, how could I explore the inner and outer? 

My first thought took me to anatomical diagrams from my studies. I wanted to look at the inner on a literal level visually, hence the heart.

Then I thought about the blood flow - in and out, just like inner and outer that I was exploring. Inspiration in, creativity out. The inner and outer are inextricably linked when we create. We are showing the world a little bit of our inner selves. 


I drew the heart diagram on to tissue paper and then stuck it down with gel medium just to be sure I didn't mess up :)

  3. Love the heart. I tend to sometimes look on a literal level too. And being biologist, the heart is a great image.
