Our Peek Inside… series takes a look inside people’s journals to celebrate their imagination and inspire others. Please send us an email if you have a project that you would like to be featured.

This week we are getting an insider’s look at Liliana’s art journals. She writes:

When I first saw the cover of a Paperblanks® notebook I was incredibly impressed, and then when I touched the pages and started drawing with a pencil I was so surprised at the beautiful and gentle quality of the paper. I can draw so easily on it and create shadows with my fingers.


I am a big fan of the Lord of the Rings books and The Hobbit, and of course of Professor Tolkien’s “Middle Earth,” too.


It is a pleasure to use my Paperblanks® notebooks for drawing scenes from Sir Peter Jackson movies, inspired by the wonderful Tolkien illustrators John Howe and Alan Lee.


Of course, I absolutely love the film soundtrack by Howard Shore, a masterpiece by a true musical genius!


When I get home after an exhausting day and I see my Paperblanks® books, they give me positive energy and I start to draw. This is why you will always find one notebook open on my desk.



All my drawings are in Paperblanks® notebooks and they are my greatest “precioussssss.”
