We are Eric M. Scott and David R. Modler, better known as the Journal Fodder Junkies.

Since 2005, the Journal Fodder Junkies have been on a mission to connect people with their artistic potential and to cultivate their creativity.


Our Mission

We are artists and educators dedicated to bringing the power of art and the visual journal to all who seek it. We make art. We teach workshops. We share our passion for art and for teaching with others at a wide range of venues, from state and national education conferences to private art studios, from popular art retreats to local school systems.

Creativity is an innate ability, but we all can use help in connecting to it!

Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work.
— Chuck Close
