Well I've done it! The coloring book has landed!
In it there are twelve intricately drawn bugs to color. I drew the first one (that praying mantis) just months after Ransom was born, with the goal of eventually turning it into a book. Check!
I can now always say that I've published a book, which is pretty cool. And since I went through the learning process of creating this first book, the next time I want to independently publish something I now know how. Part of what took me so long this time around is I kept dragging my feet because I didn't know how to do things. Google and YouTube are lifesavers.
My next book project is a children's book a good friend of mine wrote and asked me to illustrate. So that will be a 2019 goal. I'd also like to do another coloring book. I'm thinking perhaps potted plants, and in a smaller format, like 5"x7" or something similar.
Oh and Christmas happened. It was cozy and lovely. See you next year!
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.
