|"Soul Stories" entry: June 2016|
This is the lone page that I completed in this journal in all of 2016. I think I fully intended to do much more in "Soul Stories" at the time I did this page but then I was waylaid by all the other things I needed/wanted to do. Then again, maybe all I needed was this one entry. As is typical with most pages in this journal, I write quite a bit and then surround that with some art, mostly in the form of collage. One of the reasons I drifted away from "Soul Stories" is the fact that its pages are predominantly collage-focused, a medium I have deliberately tried to avoid in the last few years in order to develop my illustration skills and find my own unique visual voice. Collage still feels appropriate here since in this journal, the art is subordinate in importance to the thoughts I am trying to document.
