I just realized that Grandma Marilyn had her own version of a junk journal/ art journal/ smashbook, decades before they became a trend! She had little notebooks similar to this, in which she doodled and glued magazine clippings with artsy stuff.
The post says, "It's hard to keep up with an illustrated journal/calendar, but totally worth it." I agree! SW: LOVE to create an illustrated journal for a grandmother to share her memories with grandchildren and further generations.
This sequence of work (primarily Kate Powell A Level Art sketchbook pages) shows experimentation with media and the exploration of compositional ideas. Artist influences are chosen cleverly: seamlessly integrating with her own aesthetic.
