Glad to be a part of this group, and looking forward to . . . . .well, actually doing something :-) I have waited over two years on 1001 journals and received nothing. This already seems more buzzy!! So a few questions, how do we trace where the Moleskine is, and how many pages do we do? how long do we have to do this?
Anyway a quick introduction: I started keeping a journal in 2003: first of all as a pocket-sized counsellor, but gradually it evolved into what it is today-an illustrated glimpse of my life. Everything on my blog comes from the journals. (except may be the odd you tube nonsense....) The name of the blog www.reallyaccessiblememory.com comes from what is says: a journal never crashes, never needs recharging and you can keep it to hand in your pocket: even if that doesn't sound like too much of a contradiction.
My work has been featured in Zuiderlucht a Maastricht-based arts paper for the last two years, and www.matchboox.com an Amsterdam publisher of miniature handmade books has published a book based on my journals. Zuiderlucht are currently previewing 'My Imaginary Lives' described by the editor as a 'graphic novel for the 21st century'! Phew!!
I am a musician and you can hear my 'contaminated blues at http://rowlandjones.bandcamp.com/ Hope you like it!
Enough for now: look forward to collaborating with you all in Cyberspace . . .
