Embark on an odyssey of reflection, self-discovery, and creative inspiration with The Wild Unknown Journal, a beautifully illustrated and hand-lettered guided journal from Kim Krans, the visionary artist and author behind the bestselling The Wild Unknown Tarot and The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit.

Welcome to The Wild Unknown Journal. The labyrinth of creativity awaits you ….

Your journey begins with a dynamic, interactive introduction that invites you into this contemplative space and explains how to use the journal and all the possibilities it offers. More than 125 exquisite pages of powerful prompts follow—combined with emotionally evocative watercolor imagery and elegant black-and-white line art—igniting an intimate and transformative experience for writers, artists, daydreamers, or anyone seeking creative magic.

Liberating and meditative, this stunning journal offers us a deeper connection to our present moment and inner most selves—freeing us to write, draw, color, collage, and create. Tap into the untamed power of the wild unknown as you discover how to unleash the imaginative, the intuitive, and the inspired within.

I just had to share this new, creative journal that hit the market earlier this month. I wanted to spotlight this on my channel because I think so many of us could benefit from having a journaling outlet like this one. This book is welcoming, encouraging, and a perfect place for both creative and non-artistic people to learn to deal and let go of the stresses of everyday life. The pages are open for each person’s individual interpretation, as shown below, and the pages are so unique and engaging – a person could spend hours unwinding and de-stressing on the pages. 

Please enjoy a few images of the various pages below:

I have started exploring and illustrating some of the pages in the journal that I was so kindly sent. I have experimented with watercolors, white gel pens, tom bow markers, and the list goes on and on. There is no limit to what you can accomplish on these pages. I am looking forward to spending more time in my journal and I hope, if any of this sounds interesting to you, you will consider picking up a copy for yourself!
