The Doodle Coloring Book is Here and I Break a Rule

SmallDoodle FrontThe Doodle Coloring Book is Here

In the last post, I told you about the lovely and talented Carolyn Hawkins and her forthcoming adult coloring book. Well, My Big Kid Doodle Book is ready for your coloring pleasure on Amazon now.

Carolyn is having a great time telling folks about her fabulous book on the WhollyPiecemeal Face Book page where she’s giving away free coloring sheets and some free books too!

I Break a Rule

Now, here’s where I break one of the “rules” of email post updates and talk about more than one thing. In other news, my art prints will be available in the soon-to-be-launched Handmade at Amazon marketplace.

I’m super excited and busy getting prints ready for the new shop. There will be a mix of old favorites, new works and vintage inspired prints so there’s something for everyone.

Look for a new signature series gallery quality line that will include a personal signature and studio bonus. Also, I’m working toward more behind the scenes information, studio updates and subscriber only exclusives in different formats so look for updates on that soon too.

For now, get sneak peeks at works in progress, and experimental work on my ShinyDesigns Face Book page.

Thank you so much for coming along and making stuff!

Cheers!

What’s New: My Big Kid Doodle Book – A Doodle Coloring Book – Coming Soon

Colored_0002

Isn’t this a something? It’s a colored doodle!

It’s a sample from one of the book projects that’s been on my worktable lately. One of the things I do for folks is work with authors as a sort of muse/editor/wrangler to help them get their books written and published.

This particular book is a coloring book for grownups so there wasn’t so much writing and editing as wrangling, but it’s the same creative process: idea, refine and organize, create and write, edit, refine some more, set it free in the world. That’s simplified but it’s the gist of it.

Sample Doodle_0001Small
This coloring book features the artwork of the lovely and talented Carolyn Medlin Hawkins who has been drawing these doodles for years – only in black and white; she never colors them in. Now that grownups have gotten wise to the happiness that coloring can bring, it was time for her work to have a larger audience. So, she bravely stepped forward to publish her first coloring book.

I’m admittedly biased (I love all my authors and think they’re brilliant) but her designs are wonderfully organic. What I like most about her book is that each one is hand-drawn art and shows the mark of a human hand. Having colored a few myself (I did the coloring for the samples here and in the book),  they’re much more interesting and enjoyable; it’s really a way of knowing the artist a little better.

The book, it’s called My Big Kid Doodle Book, should be making its debut on Amazon this month – look for an update and other news on that very soon!
