A touch of Fantasy…
These are some of the finished illustrations from a new book I’ll be bringing out in February sometime.
I keep calling it the “new book” because I’ve yet to come up with a title. I was thinking “The Faeries of Toadstool Lodge”. It’s a fantasy world of Faeries who live in Toadstool Lodge surrounded by a lush, tropical forest. There’s also an enchanted Castle where the Guardians live with their parrots and owls. They are the protectors of the faeries and creatures and they ride on unicorns but they are almost impossible to see.
You can tell I teach art to children with my imaginary worlds:)
It will have the option of black or grey lines and will be available as a budget book on Amazon via Create Space and as a downloadable PDF.
If there is enough interest I may also release a spiral bound artist edition onto thicker, nicer paper, mailed out from Australia.
Win a PDF copy of the Book
I’d love to offer 3 colourists (worldwide) a chance of winning a PDF copy of the new book. Two will be skill based and the other a lucky draw.
It’s open to worldwide colourists who are either subscribers of my Newsletter and/or members of my private Colouring Group on Facebook. (Scroll down for links)
Here’s how to enter:
1. Colour the “Tropical Flowers & Butterfly” page using traditional media, not digitally.
2. Send me your finished colouring via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or if you’re a member of my Colouring Group on Facebook I’ve created an Album where you can pop your finished colouring.
I’ll also accept colourings via Messenger.
DEADLINE: Monday 13 February 2023
3 PDF COPIES TO BE WON – 2 SKILL BASED AND THE OTHER A LUCKY DRAW
Please do not post your wip or finished colourings on social media or other colouring groups at this stage as the book is not out yet. The blank, free illustrations are only for you and not to be shared. If you have colouring friends who you think would be interested in entering, please ask them to join my Colouring Group or subscribe to my Newsletter. Thank you for your understanding.
Good luck and I can’t wait to see how you bring the illustration to life with colour.
