I found out about IFJM - the brainchild of Roz Stendahl - from the WetCanvas art journal forum and was intrigued by the idea so decided to give it a go. Essentially, you create an art journal from the perspective of a character that you want to be for that month. The time frame needs to be April of 2011, but the setting can be in an alternate reality (such as Hogwarts if you're into Harry Potter). This journal is for Perry Grin, a Peregrine Falcon who with his mate Misty, nests each year on the cliffs overlooking Snoqualmie Falls near my house in Washington state. There is actually a pair of Peregrine Falcons nesting on those cliffs, and I have been following them, and starting to sketch them as weather allows, so I thought it would be fun to try to do some sketches from the perspective of Perry. We'll see how it goes.
Here's is the first page of Perry's journal.
