Art Journal Your Archetypes Give Away

11/03/16 UPDATE 
Contest is over now and Jean Marmo is the winner!! Congrats, Jean!
I am thrilled to announce that I am a participating artist in Gabrielle Javier-Cerulli's new book, Art Journal Your Archetypes. When I heard about the book, I immediately knew I wanted 'in' because I have studied archetypes ever since I lived in California (late 90's). Gabrielle outlines Carl Jung's definition of an archetype as,
"an inherited pattern of thought or symbolic imagery derived from the past collective experience and present in the individual unconscious."  
Although this might sound like some woo woo verbiage, the study of archetypes is a way of exploring your personality and learning more about yourself based on patterns of behavior. It is fascinating, I mean who doesn't want to understand themselves better, right? To work on these ideas in conjunction with an Art Journal, well, that just makes a lot of sense!
I was lucky enough, as a participating artist, to have a consultation directly with Gabrielle. We walked through the testing and analysis together (there is a self test in the book!!) and I discovered many interesting things about myself. It was a moving experience that I would recommend to anyone, an appointment with Gabrielle. 
I also did a number of journal spreads that are within the book along with an explanation of archetypes that apply to me and the other featured artists - Seth Apter, Orly Avineri, Jessica Sporn, Nathalie Kalbach (lots of StencilGirl artists!!) and others. It is rather engrossing to read about each person. Uh yeah, I'm apparently a little bit voyeuristic, ha!!
If you are interested in watching the video conversation between myself and Gabrielle, you can find it on Youtube. You will be surprised at what I reveal about myself. 
But now for the good news........
I am giving away a FREE copy of this book to one of my lucky Blog Readers. All you need to do is leave me a comment below about why you would like to win this book. I will draw a name on Halloween!! Please make sure you leave your email address so I have a way to contact you.

  4. I'm so intrigued by the concept of this book - I really got into archetypes in my English classes and have loved what I've seen from this so far. I'd love to see how this type of thinking would impact my art journaling!

  5. Interesting.... would like to learn more, especially as I seem to suffer from splinters!! From all the fence sitting I do. I'm leaning towards 2017 being a development time for my art.

  8. I have been a fan of Jung's for years and participated in a women's group based on his ideas. I did a one woman show called 'mandalas, dreams and reflections' where I displayed mandalasI had done every day for a year along with my collaged dream and other journals as well as dream dioramas. I'm doing the show again in 2019 and am working with the archetypes for part of the show. would love to have this book for inspiration! thanks for considering me. love your stuff.

  9. A book about finding yourself? That is written just for me. I have been struggling to find where i fit in in this artistic world. Especially when the voices inside me tell me I don't belong. Techniques would certainly help me as I discover who I am!

  20. Oh this is so great to see! Archetypes are such a powerful way to connect with the self and the psyche!

    As a person who loves any thing and everything Jungian I have been exploring and studying Archetypes through mythology for many years now. The Jungian Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes who wrote Women Who Run With the Wolves, has been a profound and powerful inspiration for my artwork. As well Greek mythology and imagery of the Mythic Tarot has also provided wonderful subject matter for me, and it's why I would LOVE to win this book!catmey7@gmail.com

  40. As I just commented on Seth Apter's 'Altered Page' I am right now today at this moment in the middle of researching 'archetypes' for my fiction writing and my blog and then I opened up Seth's email, which is about ... Archetypes! I can prove this as I shared something on my Facebook page about archetypes a couple of hours ago. As I wrote on Altered Page, I must be destined for this book one way or the other!

  68. I am unable to attend outside classes due to health issues but winning this would be the next best thing and a dream come true!! I know how much I am missing out on by not being able to go to events and classes but my bad health shoots that idea right out of the water before I can even fully imagine how much fun it would be to be in the same room with many others who love what I love!
    Unless the best of the best want to stop by for some good food, good drink and lots of crafty fun this book would be the next best thing! Fingers crossed and thanks for the chance to have a dream come true!!

  69. I am a very messy artist and beating myself up on it on a daily basis It would be really helpful to learn more about myself as an artist, what makes me work the way I do, to get a bit more peace which may or may not show through again in my art
