I' ve been loving the making of this book. I' m so thrilled to work on this book myself, but also to see what others will do with it! Hopefully I will be inspiring others to create not just a book, but an enjoyable one!
When I gave up my quest, I came across my 2011 idea guide (I had never done the Kunstjournal the way I had planned, but still had the ideas). Thought maybe I could just make a hand-made magazine as a Youth Tube show and let my people in.
And I knew that part of the attraction of Wreck This Magazine was that everyone began with the same empty book and ended up with something totally new. I' d make some kind of hand-made diary, that part would be wasted! Beginning with the book's illustration and illustration work, I finished and released my book (8 month later) in June 2015.
I' ve already begun working on the prompt for the book in 2011. It was my dream to make a small magazine with a different approach on each page. It was something I wanted to use to research different ways of work. Though I began to compile a listing of suggestions for each of the pages in my magazine, I had only thought of releasing them years later.
I found a book named Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith in 2012. The Wreck This Journal is a book containing prompt that is intended to finally ruin the book. but not because I wanted to ruin the book. And I used my Wreck This Journal to draw, paint and scribble.
I' ve shot the prompt myself and finished my first one in 2013. After finishing the book, I finally made the decision to publish it on my HowToTube canal. Much to my astonishment, after a few month my Wreck This Journal movie had become one of my most loved ones. While I was thrilled by this immediate interest in my work of art, I wasn't sure where to go next.
Soon afterwards I chose to buy another copy of Wreck This Journal (a little obsessively I know) and launch a Youth Tube show in which I shot myself working on each of the pages. Though I have been loving Wreck This Journal, I don't want to stand too much on the whole devastating side of it. But I didn't want to ruin a book, I wanted to create one.
Although my show was received with great excitement, I received some backlashes because some folks thought that my artistic direction in finishing the book was against the book's intent. Although I didn't let the critics stop me, I wasn't sure where this show would take me and what I would do with my station once it was over.
When I had published the first few chapters, I chose to find a book similar to Wreck This Journal so that I could make another one. There was a certain kind of book in my head, and I couldn't find anything like it on the open air bookstore.
