Random Art Drop

I went out tonight to do a random art drop. This time instead of dropping a painting somewhere I left a hand-made art journal tucked on a shelf at the local library. This isn't the first time I've left a journal somewhere and it certainly won't be the last! I just hope whoever finds it puts it to good use. Who knows, maybe this little journal will start someone on the road to art journal happiness!

The front cover, made from an old concert program and an image of a film strip. I covered over the cover with clear packing tape. The spine has metal tape added to it for strength and interest:

The note inside telling the finder what it is and some suggestions for how to put it to good use:

And finally where I left it:

I'd intended to leave it in the art section of the library, but our library actually has a pretty crappy art section. So, I left it in the spiritual/self-help section instead. I love how the 'Pick Me!' tag stands out so well.


  1. If I found a journal like that at my library, I'd feel like I won the lottery! This is a wonderful thing you do!!!!

  2. AHHHHHHHHHHHH I LOVE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! love the pick me!! OMG!!!

  3. The pick me tag reminds me of Alice and the 'drink me' 'eat me' tags!!!

    I noticed I wrote March on the note I added inside. You'd think by now I'd know it was April!!!

  4. What a brilliant idea! I SO love it!!

    Oh, and what a very lucky person to find that lovely book....
