Here’s a sneak peek at what I’ve been up to lately: creating coloring books for adults. I’ve been obsessed. I told friends recently that I used to wonder how I could make a living by sitting around and doodling. While it of course takes a little more than that, it’s what I’ve been feeling lately. I love finding something that comes naturally to me and running with it.
This is a snapshot of a page that is under consideration for the first book:
As I work out the steps on this adventure I wonder what people like. The photo shows a really detailed page. While I love it, I also know that people have told me I’m crazy for the detailed work in which I find comfort. I have a variety of complexities to choose from and am considering giving up the really detailed ones but, we’ll see.
I’m almost halfway done with the first book, and am planning two more, all three to be published in November, most likely towards the end of the month.
Are you a colorist? Do you love the adult coloring books? What are your preferences? I’ve started a facebook group, Lori Greenberg’s Coloring Connection, to share colored designs of the free pages I give away each week for download, and to follow me in this process. Why not pop over and check it out. There is a free page from this past week and another will be posted tomorrow.
