This is a wonderful, four year, daily (including February 29th) guided journal that uses pictures instead of writing to answer prompts such as "Build a better moustrap" and "What does the moon look like this evening?" Some prompts are emotional or thought provoking and some are just plain fun. I will be the first to admit that while I live an artistic life, my drawing is not a very developed talent. To put it another way, my stick figures look like they're in traction. But this journal can be used for more than sketching, no matter what the cover says! Why not use watercolors to "Illustrate the last headache you remember having," or cutting and gluing a magazine picture collage to answer "What is your ultimate mode of transportation?" I try to make time to do something artsy every day and sometimes my projects just end up stealing a bigger chunk of time than I intended. I see these journal prompts as an excellent way to let off some creative steam and still get things done throughout the day. Plus, it will be entertaining to look back and see how things changed and my art progressed over the years, as all the answers to the prompt of the day are on the same page. I am extrememly pleased with the overall construction of this journal. My other Q&A was tiny and thick with a hard cover, this one is about 10x8 (the actual journaling squares are about 4x4, with each page/day containing four squares along with a year on each square for you to fill in. It's soft covered; it feels like a paperback, which gives it more flexibility to work on it in comfort. It's very easy to get the impression that this might be like an art workbook but it's not! It is as serious or humorous as you want to make it, just like art should be!

For the past three years, I've enjoyed Potter' Style's Q&A A Day 5-Year Journal. It's perfect for reflecting on your day when you're pressed for time, feeling writer's block, or lack an interesting topic. It's amazing to see how much my answered have changed since 2013. Really a personal time-capsule. I highly recommend it.When I discovered Potter Style's new journal for creatives, I was super excited! I love to draw and doodle, but I lack the time, space, and subject matter to fill a sketchbook. I feel that Q&A a Day for Creatives offers a quick, easy, and organized solution. Each day it poses a question and encourages creatives to draw their answer in the space provided.My only criticism is the thin pages. It is suitable for pencil, ink, or crayon. But, personally, I wouldn't use watercolor or other paints because it would probably bleed through the book. Maybe in the future they could created a paint and mixed media version with thicker paper.Otherwise, it's wonderful, and will be my go-to gift this year for artsy-fartsy friends and kids. Give the gift of daily fun and reflection for 4 years to come!I was given a copy of this book via Blogging for Books for an honest review.
