Illuminated Journaling Review

I recently finished reading Illuminated Journaling by Jann Gray. I found this book inspirational and wish I had read it much earlier in my Bible art journaling journey. One of Jann’s favorite phrases is “It’s more about your heart then the art” and that philosophy is very evident in this book.

Bible art journaling is a very personal undertaking and no two people will approach it exactly the same way. Where...

The Bible Beautiful on Kickstarter

There’s an interesting new Bible project on Kickstarter called The Bible Beautiful. Noticing how visually oriented our culture has become the founders of Alabaster, Bryan Chung and Brian Chung (yes, they have the same name) are designing a Bible for today. Wanting people to see God as the ultimate creator and artist they are creating a Bible that integrates imagery, typography and layout design within the biblical text. They are using photographic images, the majority of which were created specifically for this project after in-depth study of the scriptures. They are starting with the four gospels, each in it’s own book.  Each gospel...
