I illustrated a book for Jack Canfield!

I’m excited to announce that Jack Canfield’s book, The Power Of Positive Inking (illustrated by me!) came out this week!


It’s part coloring book, part workbook, part goal-setting tool, matching my original illustrations with  30 of the most empowering principles from Jack’s best selling book, The Success Principles. The result? An engaging way for visual, kinesthetic, and left-brain learners to envision their dreams, adopt new mindsets and behaviors, and achieve their goals.

Here’s what Jack has to say about it…


And here’s what our publisher has to say:

Whether you are looking to change careers, elevate your earning power, or find a new passion in your life, The Power of Positive Inking will not only keep you on track to achieve your goals but will help you draw your own unique pathways to success. Live boldly and bring your dreams to life in full color!

This is my favorite Jack Canfield quote as illustrated for the book. I shared a colored version on Instagram, and I’ve added this illustration to my Coloring Page, so you can download it, color it, and then hang it where you can be reminded daily that everything you want is, indeed, on the other side of fear.

I’m honored to have been part of this book and to celebrate its release, I’m giving two copies away. All you have to do is leave me a comment, and I’ll draw two commenter names June 12th.

Update: Congratulations to our two winners, Noreen and Jasminder!

Happy June, you guys!

    What can I say but yay and yay.
    A new coloring book from Jack Canfield, illustrated by J Clement Wall…. that about says it all.
    ( I might not do well at rhyming but I’m anxious to color)

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 12:52 pm

      Haha! I loved that rhyme! xo

  4. Jena Marie DiPinto on June 2, 2017 at 10:10 am

    Yay! I love seeing your work and to have it combined with someone like Jack Canfield… even better! 🙂

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 12:53 pm

      Thank you, Jena! 🙂

  5. Zehra on June 2, 2017 at 1:19 pm

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 2:55 pm

      Thank you, Lana! xox

  7. marysalmon on June 2, 2017 at 2:38 pm

    Judy…you are the bomb! Your daily exercises help me so much!
    Thanks for a chance to win.

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 2:56 pm

      I’ve always wanted to be the bomb! BIG smile!

  8. Pam Brooke on June 2, 2017 at 2:39 pm

    Thrilled for this! I’ve followed you for several years now and remember the time when you were hesitant to describe yourself as an artist. Exciting to follow the journey with you.

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 2:56 pm

      We’ve come a long way, haven’t we? (holds your hand through the ether)

  9. Lorilei on June 2, 2017 at 3:01 pm

    You are an inspiration, Judy. I am thankful for you. I really appreciate your thoughts, tips, and you sharing your knowledge! I am now a calligrapher because of you! I visited The Postman’s Knock from your direction awhile back and fell in love with lettering and old-school calligraphy. I now send US post-mail correspondence that is so beautiful I can’t believe I made it. 😉 Most importantly it really touches the recipient’s heart and they LOVE receiving hand-lettered cards and post (I’m a long-time pen&ink watercolor girl). Congrats on illustrating for Jack Cornfeld. I’m a looong time fan myself. Thumbs up!!! Your work is really beautiful. Much Love~~xox

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 5:01 pm

      I love everything about this note, Lorilei! How awesome that you’ve delved so deeply into calligraphy! (I’m a little jealous!) Of course people love getting letters from you. I’d be dancing around my mailbox to find one of those gorgeous envelopes in side! (Sometime during the second half of 2017, I’m going to embark on “100 Days Of Calligraphy,” and I will be using The Postman’s Knock resources like crazy! Stay tuned.)

      And thanks for mentioning that. I never know if the “elsewhere” portion of my newsletter is working for people, but now I know it is! xoxo

  10. Danielle Laflamme on June 2, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    Wow Judy! This is so fantastic!!! You are a true artist and I am a glad to be part of your journey. And if there is an issue that calls to me…fear!!!

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 5:05 pm

      Thank you! Fear is my big problem too, Danielle. It’s held me back far more often than failure even though I’ve had that Jack Canfield quote above my work table for the last five years. It’s a constant battle. (So, you’re not alone.)

  11. Jan Grant on June 2, 2017 at 3:08 pm

    What a simply perfect collaboration! You and Jack Canfield! This is great news!

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 5:06 pm

      Thank you, Jan! I was very lucky to be in the right place at the right time. 🙂

  12. Mary Clary on June 2, 2017 at 3:09 pm

    Hello and congratulations on the book!! Love the page you shared and ,wow I find it quite profound! It’s so true and so simple, yet so difficult to overcome. Anyway, I love it.

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 5:08 pm

      I agree, Mary. I’ve been scared every single time I’ve ever leaped, but even when it doesn’t pay off (not all of my leaps have), I’ve learned something I couldn’t have learned any other way.

  13. Grace Bower on June 2, 2017 at 3:25 pm

    Congrtulations on this big event .Love to be in for the win thanks!

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 5:08 pm

      Thank you, Grace! Good luck!

  14. TheOriginalPhoenix on June 2, 2017 at 3:30 pm

    This looks so cool, and I love that you’re hosting a giveaway for it. 🙂

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 5:09 pm

      Me too. Feels like throwing a little party. 🙂

  15. lana1967 on June 2, 2017 at 4:23 pm

    I want this so bad. Fingers crossed!

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 5:09 pm

      Fingers crossed for you!

  16. Joy Montgomery on June 2, 2017 at 4:24 pm

    Wow! You’ve made the big time! I still miss your short stories – genius!

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 5:10 pm

      Haha! Well, my trajectory feels very north, in any case. 🙂

  17. lunajune on June 2, 2017 at 4:46 pm

    changes all around… how cool for you <3
    soo excited to see what is coming across my path… big changes coming
    most likely going to stop working at the clinic after 35 years… don't know what's next but trusting it too will be exciting

    • j on June 2, 2017 at 5:22 pm

      Wow! That IS big! (I’ll miss the puppy stories.) Meanwhile, I’ll be thinking positive, north-y, best-work-ever thoughts for you. xoxo

  18. Melissa on June 2, 2017 at 5:28 pm

    Congratulations! It has to be very exciting to see your work connected to something/someone so inspirational and in a format accessible to people who may not otherwise get to experience your talent!

    • j on June 3, 2017 at 7:25 am

      It is! Thank you, Melissa!

  19. Noreen Trotsky on June 2, 2017 at 5:33 pm

    Congrats on the collaboration! The book looks very cool!

    • j on June 3, 2017 at 7:26 am

      Thanks, Noreen!

  20. Naomi on June 2, 2017 at 7:37 pm

    You continue to do amazing things! I’m impressed!! I could use some positive perspective right now.

    • j on June 3, 2017 at 7:27 am

      Thank you, and yes, I think we ll could, Naomi. Hugs!

  21. Kari Clark on June 2, 2017 at 7:48 pm

    What an honor for Jack to get to work with you!

    • j on June 3, 2017 at 7:27 am

      Ha! You’re the best, Kari! xo

  22. Karen S Calnan on June 2, 2017 at 10:27 pm

    Jack Canfield and J.Clement Wall…fantabulous! The 4 P’s I taught my team in business was Passion-Plan-Persevere-Payoff!!!! You Rock right along that path in my book:) so thankful my daughter Amy introduced me to you. A lot of wonderful💥

    • j on June 3, 2017 at 7:32 am

      I like the 4 P’s. I always tell people to stay open to what the payoff actually is, and how it can change. I’m so grateful for this strange, winding path I’m on. I never could have foreseen it. (And I’m happy Amy introduced us too. I seriously have the best people in my orbit!)

  23. Dianne on June 3, 2017 at 12:07 am

    Judy, I am so happy for you! Congratulations! You continue to amaze and inspire me. I can’t wait to get my copy:)

    • j on June 3, 2017 at 7:33 am

      And you me! Thank you, Dianne! xo

  24. Flame Simcox on June 3, 2017 at 5:41 am

    Judy, you are such an inkspiration to me as well as many others. Your talents and gifts are remarkable, as well as the unselfish way you share your talents with the world. You are so blessed to know which path your feet–and your heart–belong on. You are an amazing woman and it is difficult to imagine that you could fear anything, Superchick! I’m positive this collaboration with Jack is just one of many that will soon follow. I would love to share your talents. Would you share with me how you got started and how this passion informed your life and never left you? Thank you for all that you are and all that you do!! Looking forward to winning my very own copy.I live in Taiwan and it is very difficult to get specific English books here. Either the shipping charges are too high or stores don’t ship here because of blantant violations of copyright infringement. Love Love Love your PMA (positive mental attitude!) XOXO <3

    • j on June 3, 2017 at 7:42 am

      Thank you, Flame! How I got started with art is a very un-glamorous story. I fell into it, actually, and I was less passionate than curious. (But never underestimate the power of following your curiosity!) My passion, I think, is art as a vehicle for connection and hope. I believe we really are stronger together, that we have the power to lift and heal each other in ways we don’t even realize. In spite of all the evidence to the contrary, I have a lot of faith in humanity. So grateful for this note from you. Sending you hugs… all the way to Taiwan!

  25. Sandy on June 3, 2017 at 1:36 pm

    Hi!! Your daily messages are a joy to read and make me smile! You know I love what you do. Hugs from Holland. 💕

    • j on June 6, 2017 at 10:54 am

      No, I love what YOU do! (This is our version of “you hang up,” “no you.” xoxo

      • Sandy on June 8, 2017 at 2:55 am

        No you! Hahaha. You just made my day!

  26. Doreen Higgins on June 5, 2017 at 7:35 pm

    Sounds like a great fun book! I would love to have one! I hope it does well!
    Love and peace

    • j on June 6, 2017 at 10:55 am

      Thank you, Doreen! I hope so too! xo

  27. Lynn Palomba on June 6, 2017 at 11:46 am

    Congrats on your new book with Jack Canfield! Your illustrations are always inspiring and filled with positive energy. A book that focuses on reaching goals is definitely needed. It will be a great creative companion to have, so that I can get motivated to actually finish the novel I started writing years ago!

    • j on June 11, 2017 at 1:09 pm

      Just came in here to gather all the names up and found your comment. A belated good luck! 🙂

  28. Annie Neugebauer (@AnnieNeugebauer) on June 8, 2017 at 7:36 am

    That is very cool, j. You’re really taking off, and it’s wonderful to see. Congratulations!

    • j on June 11, 2017 at 1:11 pm

      Thank you, Annie. Weird how the detour can wind up being the real trip after all. 🙂
