For anyone who's ever had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes this expanded edition of “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 and to fill the pages of the book (or destroy them). Through a series of creatively and quirkily illustrated prompts, acclaimed artist Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in "destructive” acts–poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting pages with coffee, coloring outside the lines, and more–in order to experience the true creative process. With Smith's unique sensibility, readers are introduced to a new way of art and journal making, discovering novel ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process.“
