Project Description

Create your own illustrated journal entry! Whether you're following along on a digital drawing device or with a notebook and pencil, draw out a page depicting a day, week, or month of your life.

I would love to see what you come up with. Please do share your completed illogs on this page! Feel free to share any process photos along the way too. 

** Class Launch Giveaway! For a little extra motivation, projects uploaded during the first month of this class (2/28-3/31) will be automatically entered for a random giveaway of a notebook made by yours truly plus my favorite Palomino Blackwing Pencil :) **
