New artwork in Camo and Doodle Art Journals


I mentioned on this post here that I'm working in multiple art journals at one time. The Camo art journal, on the left side, was initially used to offload paint from my brush, test out pens & markers and to jot notes on the pages. It's completely filled so I decided to go back into this journal and adding more details to each page. 

The art journal on the right is my Doodle art journal. Lately, I have been posting images of the artwork in each on Instagram. Here is the latest completed pages from each journal:

Doodle Art Journal - New Artwork

New doodles created in my Doodle Art Journal. I first posted about my Doodle Journal here.   

These two artworks were created after taking a short break from social media. I needed time to regroup from the constant noise. The smaller artwork was created in my Camo art journal. I liked the design so I decided to create a similar one in my Doodle art journal.


I wasn't planning on using this art journal as a writing journal. I had some thoughts I wanted to write down so I just grabbed the journal that was closest to me. In keeping with the theme of this journal and to keep my thoughts private, I doodled on top.
 

My dear friend, Linda Friedman, passed away recently. I'm honoring her with this artwork. I wrote 3 happy memories then doodled happy flowers on top.
 

This doodle was heavily influenced by graphic designer, S. Neil Fujita (1921-2010). The night I created this doodle, I have watched "Masters of Modern Design" (season10, episode 1) of Artbound on PBS. J. Neil Fujita was one of the artist featured on this episode. Short description of this episode provided by Artbound:

Japanese American influence in postwar American art and design is unparralled.

Beyond the Edge Artists - "Say Something" exhibit

"101 and Counting" by Mia Bloom
I have the honor of being a founding member of Beyond the Edge Artists. We have new exhibit called "Say Something" that will be premiering at Pacific International Quilt Festival. The show runs from October 17-20, 2019 and will be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center located at 5001 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara, CA.

My piece is called "101 and Counting". My artist statement:

This 40"x40" fiber art piece was created for an exhibit titled "Say Something". Inspiration for this work came from my continuing search for a full-time job after taking time off to take care of my mom. Listed on this quilt are only 101 positions that I have applied to since starting this search. The list is much longer and continues to grow since I'm still looking for a full-time job.

Materials used and technique:

Commercial fabric, Sharpie marker, handwritten text and quilted.
