I've kept a journal, on and off, since I was a girl. It was just the written word; sketches remained in sketchbooks. In college, I started writing in my sketchbooks, and visa versa. Now I find that the words are secondary to the images. The words let me run off at the mouth, but the images have more meaning, more impact now. Images speak to the subconscious in a way that words never will. It's an evolution.
