Fast Car — art journal

Tracy ChapmanI don’t need to tell you that I have been a bad blogger lately….it is really obvious.  Summer comes and I see the light of day after a long dark Alaska winter and I lose it.  My blog is important to me.  I love how it documents my creative life.  It makes me accountable to stay on track with all my goals as well. So…..I am going to share some projects that I have been doing since I dropped off of the blogosphere the past couple of months.

This art journal I started after I started listening to Tracy Chapman on vinyl.  I forgot how much I loved her and I swear I played this record for two weeks straight.  So, I decided to do a Tracy Chapman art journal spread.
