Looking inside people’s journals is one of the most transparent ways of seeing how they perceive the world and transform their perceptions into writing and art.

ARTIST Daniel Worth wrote this about the following journal pages:

Since leaving Australia for Europe around the end of 2008 I have made an effort to document my travels in my art/diaries almost everyday and I am now up to my 6th [journal] in around a year and a half. I think having a journal is a special way to record personal ideas, experiences, visions and an invaluable source for my artwork. I now fantasise over having bookshelves full of my art journals when I am older and having an illustrated story of my life to look back on.
