Happy New Year!
I hope your holidays were wonderful! I ended last year and kicked off this new one with a lot of coloring. As I'm sure many of you know, coloring is one of the BEST ways to decompress after what (for many folks) can be a busy and even stressful time. It always helps me to relax––both designing coloring books AND coloring in them!
The artwork in these books is a little different from the designs in my previous books. For one, all of these designs were drawn by hand on my iPad in Adobe Ideas (now known as Adobe Draw). As a result, there is a loose organic quality to the designs in both shape and line weight. Secondly, I left a little more space inside the designs than I have in the past. I love to color, and usually the more detailed the design the better. But recently I've started coloring by adding stripes, dots and patterns to the spaces, and in this situation it helps to have a little open space inside the lines.
I colored so much during the holidays that at one point my cat came over, sat in my lap, put his tail on the page and basically forced me to give it a rest!
I hope you enjoy these new books. I encourage you to leave a review on Amazon and let me know what you think. Reviews not only help other customers in their search for a good coloring book, they also provide great feedback for me to learn from and consider when designing future books. You can now also add your own colored images to your reviews, so please share your images and let me see how you colored the pages!
You'll see much more coloring in my Instagram feed, and I'll be back soon to talk about my new fabric collection, Star Landing for Free Spirit Fabric. Until then, happy coloring and Happy New Year!
