Anti Journal by David Sinden, Nikalas Catlow

Anti Journal is no ordinary journal, it's an anarchic, therapeutic route to personal and artistic discovery packed with partially illustrated pages to complete in imaginative unconventional ways. For all ages, bedroom journalers, total novices or professional artists, Anti Journal by David Sinden and Nikalas Catlow is sheer creative bliss and the catalyst for discovering your own twist: create, pattern, draw, paint, disguise, stain, collage, construct, colour, stitch, sketch, write, tape, document and discover talents you never knew you had. Create beyond the norm: use paint, pens, pencils, chalk, but how about old clothes, fruit peel, cellphones, emotions, highlighters, digital media, physical actions, junk, photography and nature too? Anti Journal knows no boundaries or rules. It's the personal tool for expression and will stir your imagination out of even the deepest slumber. No matter where you go, just carry your handy-sized Anti Journal in your bag and live a more creative life. It's therapeutic, joyous and expressive - its journaling outside of the box.
