I don't have enough words in my vocabulary to describe how awesome the drawings are in this book. Sometimes I want something intricate to focus on while the world around me is being annoying. Sometimes I want something quick and easy. And some days I just want to color in pictures with silly words. This book allows me to do all of the above.
I can’t even begin to pick a favorite picture. There are so many incredible choices. They work well with pens and pencils. The pictures are cheeky and fun. There’s something to suit every mood swing. Well almost every move swing - I’m not sure about the full spectrum of tween girl mood swings yet.
I seriously want to find the author and give her a hug. And maybe buy her a drink. Because she gets it. I already ordered the next book in the series - and I know I will love it too.
I’ve attached a couple of my favorites. These gave me great joy to color. If this matches your sense of humor - then you need this book
The author included two palette sheets in here which was very thoughtful so that not only do you have something extra to groups your colors together, you can see how your pencils, pens and whatnot will perform on that paper without having to use one of the other pages as your test page (for bleeding and layering pencil, etc). I especially like these pages so that I can see what blending mediums will be most appropriate for that paper (mineral oil, vaseline, gamsol, 90% isopropyl alcohol, Prismacolor blender marker, Koi blender brush pen, Prismacolor blending pencil). I haven't doe in yet but I suspect the water-based blender marker (Koi) will be no good just because it's water-based, and I would not be surprised if the blender pencil picked up some of the printed ink and smears it all around for an ugly black/grey streaky mess over my coloring. But the gamsol, vaseline, and alchohol-based blender marker should do fine judging by my experience with using these on ultra-cheap Dollar Tree coloring books (O'Hara's paper is better than the books I found at the Dollar Tree, but not as solid as some books that I found at Target). And I'll even see how some cheap oil pastels will blend on the paper.
Some of the images more than make up for the iffy printing on some pages, they're just too snarky to do anything but make me grin like an idiot whenever I look at them.
One-sided printing is always a huge plus for coloring books. I appreciate that a lot.
I'm going to get the other book by O'Hara, and hoping that soon there will be a second edition of these books that will have heavier paper (like how the Secret Garden was republished with heavier paper).
