I need to catch up in posting for Project Journal Infiltration! I'm excited that sketches continue to come in. (PJI last through Labor Day and you can read all about it under "Pages" in the left column.)
Today I have two new entries. The first, from artist Mark Odegard is from our Minnesota Journal Project 2000 Ten-year Reunion in November 2010. It's me. (I was so busy talking I didn't even realize he was sketching—stealth sketching, the best kind of sketching out.) (Note: the link I have to Mark's website is not working so I will look into that and update this post ASAP. Please check back, because you really do want to see Mark's journals!)

Miss T attended the May 7, 2011 sketch out at the Shepherd's Festival (OK, it has a way longer title than that, but I can't remember it), in Lake Elmo. She was working on pre-painted journal cards that I think were about 7 x 7 inches. I was standing in the barn sketching sheep when she caught me, also exactly. (That's a polar fleece earband—I wear these until it's over 60 degrees Fahrenheit.)
All I can say is this is shaping up to be a really, really good project!
Thank you to both Mark and Miss T, and to the other artists who have been participating. If I haven't infiltrated your journal yet (and you live in the Twin Cities and can catch me live), watch out for me at the MCBA Visual Journal Collective Meetings and of course the Minnesota State Fair.
