Society of Lost Souls

I’d like to help people and wasn’t sure how, but I knew that when I was very ill with depression my condition was improved with emotional support from friends and loved ones. So the other day I started a club. I suppose you could describe this club as an emotional support network for those in need of someone to talk to, or to share ideas, advice, and experiences with. The main thing is that people don’t feel alone, and get to drink tea together (and scoff cake!) It also connects friends with friends of friends and so the friendship circles grow. Here’s the banner I made for the club:

lost souls club small

I’m hoping to bring some art and journalling into the club for expression and motivation. Maybe run a workshop. Help the lost become found together.

Making Strangers – making journals

A little photographic insight into my altered Moleskine  journal works-in-progress, taken in my north London home.

If you have any questions or would like to know more, please feel free to ask/discuss by leaving a comment below.

I now own around 40 personal journals full of drawings, ideas, and writings. I take one everywhere. Somewhere along the way altering and illustrating these journals has become a bit of an obsession.

I’m interested in folktales, nature, music, literature and poetry, and these themes feature in my illustrations often. I’ve been altering and illustrating Moleskine journals for about 4 years now, it’s been fun experimenting and evolving my ideas, and conjuring up new concepts for the notebooks.

I enjoy sharing my journal work. They have been exhibited by Moleskine in London & Tokyo, and at the Colouring Outside The Lines exhibition in Bradford.

Also one of my Goblin Market journals was showcased in the Guardian Observer newspaper recently, which was a lovely surprise!

At the moment all the journals I alter/illustrate are one-of-a-kind designs, using Moleskine kraft/tan cahier pocket notebooks with plain pages. If you have a custom request please contact me at: hello@heidiburton.co.uk or via my  Etsy shop.

If you are interested, my most recent one-of-a-kind altered Moleskine journals are for sale in my Etsy shop and my Moleskine shop.
