All my Notches posted here so far were created on the computer. The ones I am posting above, however, are scanned in pages from my paper journals. (Exception are the "open journal book" templates on which the scanned images are placed. The templates are the same as used below.) Interesting. I haven't looked at my scanned images much and this is the first time to play around with them. As the dates show the scans are from the early '80's. I did many, many sketch/journal pages during those days. I carried a journal with me all the time. I did a lot of sketching on the spot - a cafe, a bar, the sidewalk. Then there were the ones I did at 4 a.m. maybe, recording a thought, an impulse, a book passage read, or pulling one from my imagination and God knows where. I have many such journals. Most are now in the special collections section of the University library here. I don't know how many I might eventually scan.
