A little photographic insight into my altered Moleskine journal works-in-progress, taken in my north London home.
If you have any questions or would like to know more, please feel free to ask/discuss by leaving a comment below.
I now own around 40 personal journals full of drawings, ideas, and writings. I take one everywhere. Somewhere along the way altering and illustrating these journals has become a bit of an obsession.
I’m interested in folktales, nature, music, literature and poetry, and these themes feature in my illustrations often. I’ve been altering and illustrating Moleskine journals for about 4 years now, it’s been fun experimenting and evolving my ideas, and conjuring up new concepts for the notebooks.
I enjoy sharing my journal work. They have been exhibited by Moleskine in London & Tokyo, and at the Colouring Outside The Lines exhibition in Bradford.
Also one of my Goblin Market journals was showcased in the Guardian Observer newspaper recently, which was a lovely surprise!
At the moment all the journals I alter/illustrate are one-of-a-kind designs, using Moleskine kraft/tan cahier pocket notebooks with plain pages. If you have a custom request please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or via my Etsy shop.

If you are interested, my most recent one-of-a-kind altered Moleskine journals are for sale in my Etsy shop and my Moleskine shop.
