More Journal Pics

I recently received sample journals from Trends International and I wanted to post some more pictures to show the detail of the journals.  I love the quality of these journals and the thought that goes into them.  Just to clarify, when I speak of "loving" one of my products, I am giving credit to the manufacturer and their ability to use my artwork in creative ways on their products.  I often do mockups for manufacturers, but the final product is usually a collaboration, with a lot of the work being done by the manufacturers and their designers.   So it is a lot of fun for me (thrilling, actually!) to see how the final products turn out.  These journals are of extremely high quality and I love that they carry the theme of the artwork throughout the entire journal, as shown in the photos below.
I'd like to add that being a lifelong collector of journals and notebooks, I can't help but get completely giddy when I see these!  Every time a new product comes out I want to go out and celebrate.  But then, usually I just get inspired to try and make new and better work so I find myself back at the computer, thinking about the next project.  Yep, I'm headed back to my beloved Adobe Illustrator as soon as I post this!  Happy weekend, everyone!!
