Back in 2018, I published my first coloring book, Beautiful Bugs. Since then I’ve had the personal goal of publishing a second, ocean-themed book. Slowly I’ve been widdling away at drawing the pages. (My monthly commitment of sending printable coloring pages to my newsletter subscribers has helped me with this). Well, last week I finished my 15th and final ocean coloring page. If you’re on my mailing list, this will be familiar to you (if you’re not, you can download it via my Etsy shop).
I still have to work on a cover and title page, and then format it to print — but I’m super excited! I feel proud of all the drawings and am excited to have it in my hands. I'm still deciding on a title for the book that's not totally cheesy. Sea Magic? Ocean Wonders? The Awesome Ocean? Marine Magic? I don't know!
Here’s a little preview of some of the pages. If you’ve been following me for awhile, these will be familiar to you.
Ok, done patting myself on the back. Now here is a picture of a silly bear Ransom and I saw at the zoo this morning.
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
