From the Author
As an artist, color is a thing of magic in my life. Color creates shapes, forms, and feelings in the artworks I paint. Laying color onto a blank page is when I feel closest to true magic, when I feel happiest and most relaxed, and it's through what I create that I share my love of magic with the world.
Through my coloring books I want to share that same magic with you.The artworks in my books are based on my completed paintings, which I have painted over the last ten years as a professional artist. I have created the coloring designs to be intricate and detailed but still fun and accessible. There is something for lovers of meditative detail while simple enough to not be overwhelming for younger colorists.
When designing my books I decided to print them with two copies of each design, because I know as an artist there are always so many possibilities! I wanted to give everybody the chance of a do-over with every design. Try a different medium, or a different color scheme. Or a chance to share the magic with a friend, child, parent, sibling. Because sharing your creativity and joy of color is the best magic of all.

The designs are fairly simple to color and have open and easy line drawings. The focus is on the young girls and while some designs have more extensive backgrounds, most have much less background designs.
I also really appreciate that this artist provides you with two copies of each design. That makes it easy to share or to try two different colorways or mediums.
This is what I experienced while coloring in this book and testing my coloring medium on the paper:
25 x 2 Cute and Creepy Little Girl Fantasy Designs for a total of 50 coloring pages
Printed one side of the page
Paper is white, thin, slightly rough and non-perforated
Designs do not merge into the binding and there is plenty of room to cut out pages if you choose to do so. Some designs have a framing line around the outer edge
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the page quickly.
Water-based markers bleed through in spots.
Gel pens and India ink pens leave shadows on back of the page. India ink can bleed through if you apply heavily or multiple coats.
Coloring Pencils work well with this paper. I found that I could layers the same color for deeper pigment or multiple colors and I could blend easily using a pencils style blending stick. Both wax and oil based pencils worked well with the paper. Hard lead pencils can leave dents through the page.
I like to use a blotter when working in the book. I use a page of card stock or several sheets of heavyweight paper under my working page. It keeps seeping ink and marring dents from ruining the pages below.
"Faedorables - Cute and Creepy" contains two copies each of 25 different images, 3 pages of introductory material, and a single page of additional information in the back. It measures 8.5 x 11 inches and is glue bound in a matte finish cover. Featuring adorable fantasy and horror inspired line drawings, this book is appropriate for colorists of all ages and skill levels.
The paper in this book is bright white and slightly heavier than standard copy weight. All pages are single sided and non-perforated. Since the pages are blank on one side, all mediums can be used, but wet products will bleed through and may cause some wrinkling. Be sure to place several sheets of blotter paper under your current picture to prevent color transfer onto the next page.
As previously stated, "Cute and Creepy" focuses heavily on fantasy and horror. Inside you'll see witches, zombies, fairies, vampires, werewolves, and more. There are also a few images based on classic stories like "Frankenstein", "Sleepy Hollow", and "Miss Muffet". Nearly every picture features a few background elements, while several have been left blank to add your own personal touches. Line weight remains fairly consistent and print quality is excellent. The majority of images don't have a border, but all do end before entering the binding. If you should choose to remove any pages, no artwork will be compromised. Detail level is fairly consistent and quite simple. Picture completion time should range from 2-4 hours(may be slightly different for each individual). Overall, this is a very cute book with a nice variety of images. It would be best suited for colorists who enjoy Halloween/horror inspired imagery.
