I decided around the 1st of May to design and draw an adult coloring book of swirling whimsy, a strange world, full of fairies, mushroom homes, fields of flowers, paisley’s, and gardens. I have been laboring over it for 2 and 1/2 months and have almost completed all of the drawings.
I drew this coloring page, “Happy Land Village,” a couple of weeks ago and decided to make a slide show showing it’s progression from start to finish, first a pencil drawing, and finally a completed ink drawing.
This coloring book is one of my most favorite projects I have ever worked on, I have been having so much fun. I can hardly wait until I get to finally release it and share it with the world. The most fun part, the imagining and drawing, is coming to a close in the next week, and I will then have much to do in the way of getting a business license, tax paperwork, computer editing, book formatting, proofing and more editing, and listing my finished project in different shops online and getting it in local shops in person. So basically the challenging part is about to begin. I haven’t ever done any of these things before except for putting some art work in some local shops. So it is a little daunting, but I am so thrilled and excited to share my creation with others that it is well worth all of the learning up ahead in the next couple of months! My coloring book will be released around the end of September 2016.
I hope you enjoy this little slide show 🙂
