David R. Modler and Eric M. Scott are the Journal Fodder Junkies. This dynamic duo are artists, educators, authors, and internationally recognized experts on the visual journal. They have presented at state, national, and international conferences and conventions, and they have provided workshops at artist retreats and other venues across North America.

In 2010 their first book, The Journal Junkies Workshop, was released by North Light Books, and quickly became a bestseller in the mixed media community. Feeling like they had not exhausted their ideas on the visual journal, they wrote a follow up, Journal Fodder 365. Released at the end of July 2012, Journal Fodder 365 has quickly become a bestseller as well.

Eric M. Scott lives in Purcellville with wife Joanne and their numerous animals. He teaches art at Tolbert Elementary School in Leesburg.

David R. Modler lives in Shepherdstown, WV where he is an Assistant Professor of Art and Coordinator of Art Education at Shepherd University.
