Coming soon...a new Unicorn & Pony Coloring Book! This was a comissioned project that I enjoyed working on. I am adding the finishing touches on this project and it will be released shortly.
Update: find the Unicorn & Pony Coloring Book in our shop!

Here's a couple of pages from the next two coloring books I'm working on: a Woodland Coloring Book & a Creatures of the Water Coloring Book.
Here's a few projects I've been working on lately: my new Robot Coloring Book, and a few more fun animal illustrations! Which character is your favorite?
The coloring book and quite a few new illustrations will be debuting at the RAW event TRANSLATIONS.
This week I received the proof copy of my coloring book! I'm really quite happy with the quality of the book from CreateSpace. The cover has crisp colors and is nice and glossy. The inside pages have crisp lines, and I like the slight tooth of the paper, which will work nicely for a coloring book. I drew the animals and creatures in black ink, and I think this translated well to the final printed product. The book even has its own ISBN number, how cool is that?
The coloring book ended up being 44 pages, with 20 different animals, characters and monsters. This Crazy Creatures Coloring Book is now available for sale from CreateSpace, as well as Amazon! I'd love if you'd check out the product pages, and click the "like" button near the top on the Amazon page. I'm also planning on having some copies available in my online shop, The Inky Octopus. Overall, I'd highly recommend CreateSpace for your own book project!
This week I've been having fun working on illustrating a coloring book. I decided to include some of my favorite characters, redrawing them in black-and-white line work. As I was looking for a place to publish this book, I came across the site CreateSpace. I've never used this company before, but it seems neat because it's linked to Amazon and your book can even be sold on Amazon. Have you tried CreateSpace?
I'm also trying to decide which of my characters to use for the front cover of the coloring book. Which page do you like the best?
I'm an illustrator with an affinity for octopi. I love using watercolor and ink, and really enjoy working with the book form. View some of my story books, coloring books, and critter illustrations in my shop. Also, visit my Facebook page & Instagram feed.
