Valentine’s Day 2018
I designed this colouring template for the facebook group Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans for them to post coloured versions today.
This is my coloured version. I drew on paper with pen, but coloured it in using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro on my Microsoft Surface book using my Surface Pen.
Why I’ve been so quiet…
It’s been nearly a month since my last blog post. The reasons? Focusing on a book at the moment. It’s called A Dangle a Day: Lettering Alphabets and Seasonal Designs with Charms , though there’s no cover image for the book yet on Amazon it is available for pre-order. It’s not a colouring book per-se, it’s more of a tutorial book, but colouring does play a big part of course.
It’s a new direction for me, I’m learning new things about publishing, and enjoying the challenge. I have to focus on this project for now, and not sure I can do ‘sneak peeks’ yet, but when I can, I will!
I do have another colouring book to do after this one …more about that later on.
The other reason is that I’ve been unwell. Nothing serious, thought to be a ‘viral wheeze’ (which is affecting me like asthma) but it’s got worse again, and is stopping me sleeping properly and lacking energy to do more than what I need to contractually do.
