Landscapes of the World

A BMJournal is an artist’s sketchbook that you mooch and then add your own art to. This one is devoted to the world around us, so it is preferred that the art you add is a portrayal of a part of the landscape around you. Please no paint in this one unless you paste it in, and please only draw on the fronts of pages so that the art doesn’t get smeared onto someone else’s. Have fun! When it’s full, please return it to me. Bookmooch id = cjaoov.

The Little Book of Stamp Art

Have you had cool stamps arrive on your mail and thought wow that would make a great piece of art but never got round to doing anything with it?

Now’s your chance to change that.

This little book is just bigger than an ATC but on each page i want you to create a little piece of art inspired by a stamp you have received (include the stamp on your page!). One to two pages per person please.

* on the back of your page please put your name (moocher id, real name or both) the date and the title of you little piece of art!
*please don’t keep the book for any longer than 2 weeks and please mooch it back to this page so people know where to look.

WHEN it’s completely full please message me and i’ll mooch it back from you.


This journal is not travelling, it appears never to have been sent.


This is an art journal in which each person will choose one element of the art on the previous 2-page spread, echo it somewhere on the next spread and extrapolate from there. For this to work, please work in order (p.1, p.2, p.3, etc.), and choose an element that will be recognizable, like a blue triangle or a girl’s face, so that anyone looking at it from the beginning will be able to figure out what each artist chose to build on from the previous piece. Please turn it around in the usual two weeks and return it to NovelCat when done.

Abstract Geometry

This is strictly art, and strictly geometrical. Take a double page spread and glory in shapes and colors that are not at all representational. The book needs cover art, too. Please turn it around in the usual two weeks, then return it to NovelCat when it’s full.


This journal was mooched by a member who has been inactive for two and a half years and has not responded to my mails. It must be regarded as lost.

More Important Things To Do

This is a collaborative art book to be created over the pages of one of my old calendars/planners. I’ve started by adding some things to each page. I also made some chunks of pages into big thick pages and some are left as is. Feel free to cut/add/subtract/alter to your heart’s content. Anything goes, just be respectful of each other.

Potraits of Humanity

Pretty simple, straight-forward theme. I want to fill this fabulous journal (with a drawing of Michaelangelo’s David on the cover) to be filled with portraits of people. Sketches, paintings, photographs, even written word – I don’t care how it’s done, but I want to capture a piece of a person’s soul on every page!

Do as many people, take as many pages, as you need.
