What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for almost twenty years now. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

20 July journal page

Stayed up late last night and read Wimbledon Green by Seth. I won't tell you that I liked it because I LOVED it! Definitely worth having on your shelf for both the story and the artwork.
There's a story in there of a boy who reminded me of Tristan at Comic Con. "Sketch, please!" It had me in a fit of giggles. My boy went up to everyone he could find and asked, "Sketch and sign please!" This from a boy who usually doesn't say boo to his own shadow. He also haggled with several dealers which cracked me up.

Day 2 of
a Prompt A Day is in full swing. I'm trying something new this month. I've put up the entire month's worth of prompts in advance, in order. This month is going to be crazy busy for me traveling so I wanted to get it all up on the site now. Now I can kick back and see what other people do with the prompts. I love it!! It's the best part of teaching. You give a group the same idea and you get a gazillion different interpretations.

Peter Kuper's new sketchbook journal, Diario De Oaxaca, that I am KICKING myself for not picking it up at Comic Con.
