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!

21 January 2013 Journal Page


We had a great time at WonderCon. It's always a bit difficult to get back to reality (whatever that may be) after attending a comic book convention. When you surround yourself with things you love: art, books, comics, film, etc... on a daily basis and then you enter a bubble where that world is alive and real, it's pretty hard to want to leave it. The real world seems more surreal afterwards. It's not something most folks would understand unless you love science fiction, fantasy, comics, film, art, etc... and it's a part of your world already. 

We know that we're pretty lucky to be able to attend these conventions and that WonderCon is only a small taste of the big pie: San Diego Comic Con. Yes, we're already counting down and talking about it. 

So today I'll try to acclimate back to my reality. I'll work in my journal, read some of the books that we bought, figure out where to put my two new dolls and later on watch something together that we'll all enjoy.

What dolls did you get? Yes, I am nosey. Have you ever done a journal page on something like that?
