The Artist Journal Workshop, Bunkers, Tracie (Author) May 2011. 128 p. Quayside/Quarry, paperback, $24.99. (9781592536849). 745.593.Kansas artist Bunkers' second book is much akin to Alice's fall down the rabbit hole. We wonder, initially, where we're going when Bunkers starts with a psychological caveat about the art of visualjournaling. Even more confounding is that her process, complete with call-to-action exercises and prompts, is not a real methodology to follow. Rather, it's a series of how-to instructions exploring differentemotions. Confusion aside, Bunkers provides the usual upfront information about tools and materials aswell as useful narratives to help avoid visual blockages. To get unstuck, for instance, she advises cuttingout magazine words and pictures or figuring out what's being avoided. Along the way, her very personallayout entertains, as do her examples. Tips, such as to take photos up-close and to save removed pages, inform novices and pros alike. An accompanying DVD takes readers through her instructions, but takecare, for it's all too easy in using this kind of crafts book to slavishly copy the samples withoutcustomizing or starting afresh. - Booklist, May 2011.
