NYC - Get Messy Art Journal Meetup
I met some of my internet friends in real life and it was awesome!
Mike and I popped up to NYC for the weekend so I could meet up with my friends from Get Messy Art Journal. It's surreal to meet internet friends because in a way you already know them pretty well yet you've never seen them in person. It cracked me up because everyone was surprised with how tall I am (I am 5'10"). I look shorter in photos I guess.
We met up outside the public library and made art at a table, ate lunch, went to some stationery stores and then sat in another park for a few more hours.
I definitely plan to do some more meet-ups!
While we were chatting and drawing/painting/gluing etc. I pretty much finished up the small journal I had begun for Minimalist Art Journal 2.0. It's not very minimalist but that's fine, I am a natural maximalist. I will have to make another small journal to complete the course. Some pages are pictured below.
Amy and I exchanged our collaborative journals, which was exciting, but I will make another post devoted to that.
