I’m filthy. Seriously. I am probably one of the filthiest people you will ever meet. There isn’t a word that won’t escape my lips (and usually does so daily). I love vulgarity and raunchiness. It’s just fun to be immature and inappropriate.
That being said, I usually don’t use nasty words in my art journal (or around my child). “Why,” I ask myself (to the art journal part, not my kid)? I guess it seems taboo to make something pretty and drop an F-bomb on the top of it. That being said, I am who I am, my art journal is MY art journal and there ARE NO RULES in art journaling, right? So, why don’t I cuss in my art journal? I don’t know. I think I need to make a page full of filthy, disgusting words and make it as pretty as possible. That’s called juxtaposition.
See, not all people who swear are ignorant! We simply like using words that make people go, “Oh, no he didn’t!”
What is my point with this post? Be yourself, always. I am me at work, I am me at home, and I am (going to start being) me in my art journal. Don’t shy away from something just because you think it’s not right or may be viewed as inappropriate. It’s your journal. Do what you want. Dammit.
