The Fantastic & Fabulous Worlds colouring book
In July I published my first colouring book. Having returned to art just over two years ago, one of the styles I developed involves a page full of curious creatures, hence the title!
There is nothing logical about them. Most have beginnings and ends but their feet might have a couple of arguing heads, their hair made up of beaks and snakes, they might have a fin for a tail or a lizard’s tail or webbed feet. Nothing is quite as it seems as you trace them through and around each others.
Some pictures have up to 50 characters.
I lose myself both in the drawing and painting of them… Then some people suggested I hold off on painting them – mostly water colour – so they could have a print and do their own version.
And so I started gathering black and white drawings, with a view to doing a small colouring book. There are ten drawings in each and the book is A6 landscape so fits easily into a bag.
The Fantastic Worlds Storybook
The second book comes from the first, from pictures I had already painted. Every time I’ve had a stand or an exhibition, I get asked what they’re about. I make up stories on the spot but they change depending on mood, place, which part of the drawing the viewer finds interesting.
Here in the Fantastic Worlds storybook, I’ve printed a selection of them with small stories, but also left the story pages blank for two of them so that readers can invent their own.
