About Bobbie Herron

 A name that has shaped my life.

Not everyone has a cartoon built into their name.

About my cartoon identity at right: The tenuous balance between society, rules, obedience (a British bobby’s police hat), and privacy, creativity, freedom (heron). Voila, Bobby Heron, or Bobbie Herron, as my folks spelled it.

I am the fourth generation of journal-keeping women, starting in 1862. I have read their words and between their lines. This blog celebrates the unsung women whose lives were recorded and transformed through their private writing and artwork.

It is my hope that you will be inspired enough to create and cherish your very own illustrated journal habit.
