shared journals

last year i had this idea to share a sketchbook with my dad (who happens to be an artist and a huge inspiration of mine) as a way of keeping in touch in a more fun & personal way than phone calls, emails, and texts - i'd draw something and mail it to him, he'd draw something and mail it to me, no pressure or theme or deadline - just alternate pages in a journal that we share... it can go on forever! then i thought... this would be a great project to share with my husband (who is a writer) and other creative friends... and so far it's been amazing!! i highly recommend trying it. here are some pages from mine & matthew's shared journal -
