Why subscribe to the Illustrated Life substack?

Posts and newsletters are currently free to all. I will be sharing Illustrate Your Week prompts here as well as thoughts on the illustrated journal process, building and keeping creative habits, and finding balance and meaning in your creative routines.

As an extension to the Creativity Matters Podcast, which I’ve created, written, and produced for free since 2006 (first as the Creative Mom Podcast), I hope to expand my writing here in this space where the focus is on the content, not the format, and where I can engage with you more easily and directly.

Subscribe to get full access to the Illustrated Life newsletter and website. A weekly newsletter on Sunday will contain a mix of information about creative life, keeping an illustrated journal, the #illustrateyourweek prompts, and more.

Thank you for your support of my work and words now and through the years.

Voice of Creativity Matters Podcast and creator of #illustrateyourweek weekly prompts for documenting life in an illustrated journal. I'm making art in the margins to balance the day-to-day, and I hope to inspire you to do the same!
