ArtOrder: The Journal - Softcover
What can an artist do with a double-page spread and full creative freedom?
Imagine this. Your favorite artist hands you their sketchbook. As you absorb their art, you notice they’ve scribbled some thoughts, too.
The closer you look, the more secrets you discover: notes, reflections, and unfiltered emotions. You realize, this isn’t just a sketchbook.
It’s a picture of who they are. It’s a diary. And you fall into a rabbit hole of confession, wonder, and mystery.
Now imagine experiencing this a hundred times over. That’s what ArtOrder: The Journal is.

Get inside the best creative minds
This started as a dream to assemble a fellowship of the best artists in one book.
2 years in the making, it evolved into a collection of deeply personal pieces—unguided, unedited, and uncensored. No rules. Just the artist and their craft.
With every turn of the page, you discover a new vision. Flip to a collage and story by John Harris. Then to a detailed walkthrough of a painting by James Gurney.
Everything in between is just as insightful and unique.
Find yourself revisiting this wellspring of inspiration. And coming away with new insights every time.
Meet the legends, and the rising stars
Explore the personalities, thought processes, and creative expressions of some of the best artists in illustration, film, game concept art, fine art, and more.
The styles and approaches in this book are as diverse as the artists that made them. Here’s what they have to say:
"Jon is giving us an opportunity to challenge one another and to raise the bar for ourselves and for the field, while at the same time producing something personal. A book like this is exciting because we each know going in that our work is going to appear side by side with the work of our peers, heroes, mentors, and friends - that's a hell of a challenge and it makes this a very cool project to be a part of!" ~ Tracy Lewis
"Jon's project appealed to me because it demanded more than just an interesting image. He's asked for a glimpse behind the curtain, a visual peepshow not just of what we make, but who we are." ~ Iain McCaig
