my thoughts are my own

My journal project: eco-friendly journals made in Canada with covers screenprinted by me in my Vancouver studio.screenprinted journal-my thoughts are my ownThe image of the woman is from a trip I took in Guatemala. The expression on the woman’s face was one of someone who thinks a lot and that has many things to worry about. Maybe life isn’t easy for her. Who are we to know anyway? When we travel we might often think that we understand or can relate to the people we see on the street. But can we really? We might want to have a conversation with this very pensive looking woman. But does she care about having one with us?

To me this image says, “don’t pretend to know what I think,” “don’t pretend to know what my world is like” and most importantly “don’t assume I want to share my world with you…a stranger.”

Journal Specs: 6″ x 9″ ECO perfect-bound notebook with 72 sheets.  13 pt soft cover and ivory lined sheets. Made in Canada from 100% recycled materials.

Availability: At the moment I have printed only a very limited edition — only 3 or 4 of each composition. I may print more depending on how they’re received. I will have these at the Culture Crawl (Nov 18, 19, 20) and the One Of A Kind Show in Vancouver (Dec 8 – 12).

    Isn’t that the truth. We all assume we are the only ones with worries….and though we think we understand our friends, often we don’t. So, I guess it is unrealistic to assume we understand strangers in a strange land.

    Yeah, thoughts and feelings are a funny thing — complex more often not. Thanks for sharing!
