Book Review: Q&A a day, 4-year journal for creatives



This is a fun and unique book, set up to be completed over a four year period.

Each page (starting with January 1st, ending on December 31st) has a small prompt which you are supposed to explore, by adding a small doodle/sketch/painting to the page.  There are four rather small (about 3"x3") squares in which to add your sketch each year.

The prompts are sometimes silly, sometimes thoughtful.
Here are some examples from the journal:
What does boiling water look like?
Try to draw darkness.
Draw a sculpture or statue.
Create your to-do list as graffiti art.

Though there is not much space in which to draw, these prompts may also just get your creative juices flowing, so that you can
go from the book's pages to maybe a greater, more elaborate project.

Covering the span of 4 years, this is quite a commitment, but as I said, it doesn't really ask for a whole lot from you, so it would probably be pretty easy to accomplish.

The paper is not really suitable for heavy markers or watercolor, both of which would bleed through the page. It's more suitable for crayons, and colored pencils.

I think I will have fun with this book over the years.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
