In an Extreme Visual Journal, we are after the rich interior. We are concerned with our own and unique inner, ancient wisdom. We want to find our voice, our style, and our flair for life by documenting our past, present and future in a book. We are NOT concerned with making art. We are NOT concerned with a product or pretty picture. We want to know how to unfold and in that moment, there is remarkable beauty on the page we did not know we possessed.

For Your Eyes Only

An Extreme Visual Journal is, in fact, a journal. So if your book is something you show to all your friends to prove what a great artist you are, it’s probably not an Extreme Visual Journal. Your book houses your vulnerability and it is not safe with everyone. You should feel a tinge of uncertainty like, “yes you can look at that but don’t read this part or no, wait a minute, maybe not that page...“ You should feel protective of your book’s incomplete images, meanderings, ramblings, highs, lows, angry scribbles, elated paintings and just plain ugly pages like it is your own child. It is. We are talking about the awakening or birth of your authentic self. Our Extreme Visual Journal is her safe house. You don’t have to wear make up, the right outfit, or impress your imaginary audience. Your book is your witness protection program where you can go and truly be yourself. This is the book that doesn’t need no damn embellishment or perfection. It is perfect in its natural state. It is the one place we can go that no one else needs to know about, see or get. This is our private place. A soul filling place. artfire.com The existing book can lower the anxiety created by a blank page
