When it is time to relax and unwind from the activities of the day, there is simply nothing better than a cup of hot cocoa and your favorite coloring pencils and books. With the explosion of interest in adult coloring books, adults of all ages have been able to rediscover the joys of exploring their creative minds. However, some of us never really mastered the art of choosing the right colors. We are more than just color-blind; we are color-challenged. In this unique twist on the coloring books for adults genre, C.R. Gilbert has added an extra element to her coloring book designs. From the mind of the artist, you will find two copies of each design -- one with numbers and one without numbers. You will also find a key that describes the recommended color combinations, and you will find two practice templates to help you to explore new color combinations before diving into coloring the actual design. There is actually no better method available to help you learn how to combine the colors of the rainbow into any design you attempt. When you begin this journey, you will see designs that will use just three colors. By the time you reach the end of the book, the more complex designs will include up to six individual colors. If you have ever struggled with picking the best colors for the illustrations you tackle, you will surely find this must-have coloring-guide to be helpful and very educational. By the time you have completed this remarkable coloring book for adults, you will have a lot more confidence in your ability to combine a variety of colors in a really beautiful way. Read More...

Myths and Monsters

"Myths and Monsters Grown-up Coloring Book, Volume 1" by M. Patrick Duggan

| Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Coloring Book for grown-ups with 30 Art Nouveau and Art Deco inspired illustrations of mythical gods, goddesses, monsters, heroes, and creatures. Includes commentary on the Art Nouveau movement, along with notes about mythology across multiple cultures. Reviews: "Can not say how much I love this book!" I've been wondering where this book has been all my life? It's a great book of Gods, Goddesses and mythological figures. Figures depicted with care and reverence, not just the standard Greco-Roman faire either. It's peppered with Native American, Egyptian, West African, Hindu, Buddhist deities and figures. And its done in the Art Nouveau style, there are details but not too many as you can add your own. Plus the info about each figure depicted is great and adds some humor. Each drawing/peice is one sided so ideal for watercolor, markers or gel pens as long as you slip a blank sheet behind. If you like Mythology and Art Nouveau you won't be disappointed. Can't wait for who volume 2 brings us. ~Roshshonna L. Ridout "Two Very Enthusiastic Thumbs Up!" Full disclosure: the artist/writer is my younger brother. Don't let that fool you about my high rating as he's been the bane of my existence most of my life, especially during adolescence. This coloring book, however, is really a testament to his creativity. It's not just the pictures, it's the informative, yet very amusing, little descriptions that make it special. I love it and have even bought more that one copy...which reminds me, don't you think he should've tossed me a complimentary copy or two? Brothers, good grief. ~Jaye
