In Episode 225 of the CMP, the creative journey continues with confirmation of the flamingo, a coyote, a coffee, discussion of age-old questions like “If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book (or 10) would you want with you,” and a close-up look at a journal from artist Sabrina Ward Harrison. I love this journal as a collected look at her art as well as an inspiring workbook someone could inhabit and “fill in.” I have talked about Sabrina Ward Harrison’s books in previous CMP shows (long, long ago), and it was incredibly inspiring and exciting to look at this book with fresh eyes and in the context of “now.”
Thoughts on fountain pen inks, the mind-boggling amount of time it takes to run through a cartridge, the allure of a crazy green ink that may be my next fill, great resources for fountain pen inks and content, and tracking and documentation projects. Plus, a book on embroidery and one on mindfulness.
Thoughts on seeing, on the baseline parameters and “tried and true” contours that help us understand who we are, on wearing black, and on really funky, Steampunk-inspired goggles… and the value of using some other kind of lens to help you see beyond what you already know and believe.
A “documentation” project for February, just a toe in the water to do some more deliberate tracking of personal data… and at the end of it… to explore the process of visualizing that data and turning it into something creative. For the most part, I plan to track creative-oriented data… data that will help me see larger patterns in my day to day, creative energies, and creative journey.
