So I just got this sweet book in the mail from artist and author Keri Smith. She personally sent me a copy...which is even sweeter! =)

What is it called? "WRECK THIS JOURNAL"
Here is the book description on amazon:
"For anyone who's ever wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes Wreck This Journal, an illustrated book that features a subversive collection of prompts, asking readers to muster up their best mistake- and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book (and destroy them). Acclaimed illustrator Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in "destructive" acts-poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting with coffee, and more-in order to experience the true creative process. Readers discover a new way of art and journal making-and new ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process."

It really is a cool book...some of the prompts include ripping pages, licking colorful candy and licking pages, ripping out pages and giving it to a friend, a stain page, writing one word over and over again, dragging it thru the mud, mailing it to yourself and other wacky things!!

its great for everyone, not just artists/writers!! its a great and easy way to express yourself and blow off some steam =)

so please support Keri Smith's wonderful efforts and get this book!! I will start to scan pages when I get working on mine =)
