Tumnus' Journal

I know I keep blogging about past work, but I recently showed this project to my Drawing class at Union University, and their excitement over it re-inspired me to blow off the dust and bring this book back into the light.
As a high school graduation gift, three good friends bought me my first set of C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia. I read the entire series the summer before I started college at Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) - and the impact was so powerful, that I began to use the stories as the basis for most of my projects in art school.
After I graduated from IWU, I decided to begin the process of binding some of my favorite pieces in a book. The project morphed into a vintage-style Narnian journal. The book is unfinished, but I thought I would post some of my favorite pages over the next few weeks leading up to Christmas. Enjoy the book.


  1. Too much suspense! OPEN OPEN OPEN! Very cool, Josh.

  2. Would you share how you attached your leaves? I have been trying to do this for a couple of years...unsuccessfully.

    1. I'm not sure how this one was done but I have used a matte gel medium to a similar effect, not sure if that helps

  3. what a wonderful idea, love the cover.
