About the Author

Sudie Rakusin is an artist whose body of work includes pen-and-ink drawings, oil paintings, papier mache pieces, and 3-D Journey Books. Her work has appeared in calendars, magazines, and books, as well as on book covers and as notecards.

Ms. Rakusin has published two books in her Coloring Books for Big Girls series. These books feature Ms. Rakusin's pen-and-ink drawings of strong womyn, goddesses, and animals.

In 2011, Ms. Rakusin published a divination deck called Journey Cards: Multicultural Goddesses and Imagined Saints for Guidance, Epiphanies, and Revelations. This 55-card deck comes boxed with a 132-page booklet that describes each Goddess and Saint and gives tips for incorporating the deck into one's daily life.

She also has published three hardcover picture books and one softcover dual-language activity book in English and Spanish in her children's series, Dear Calla Roo...Love, Savannah Blue. The characters in the series were inspired by two darling girls: Ms. Rakusin's Great Dane, Savannah Blue, and her niece, Calla Ruth. Pen, ink, and water-soluble chalk were used to create the illustrations. Ms. Rakusin lives and works outside of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

I didn't think Ms. Rakusin could top the first book but much to my surprise she has. Not only is the intricate artwork outstanding and inviting, but the themes seem so universal, important, and inviting that I am compelled to pick up my crayons and play. How exciting to find art that encourages us to participate and grow. Isn't this the essence of what good art should be?

I bought Ms. Rakusin's second coloring book for holiday gifts for my friends, sister, and niece -- most as sequel gifts for the first Coloring Book for Big Girls I bought a couple of years ago.
I wrapped them up with a box of watercolor pencils, and still feel great about the choice. My friends color privately, as a way to enhance their own journaling. They take them on group campouts, pass them around at parties, as an ice-breaker for classes, and in the dorm room for everyone to contribute.
But this book is not for everyone. Those looking for more white space to color, need only buy a tablet of plain paper. To find "light" women with sensual curves, tiny waists, full yet sag-free breasts, and delicate features, they need only buy a Cosmo or Seventeen magazine. And Ms. Rakusin's coloring books would be wasted on those who are looking for such female images.
Like the first Coloring Book, this second one is a celebration of REAL women, SPIRITUAL women, and our legitimate boundless vision. Ms. Rakusin demands that we think beyond the media's perception of women's bodies in 2002. Her book is more than a coloring book -- it is an invitation to color outside the lines, and to add whatever we bring to the drawing. It is a rare opportunity to validate our perceptions. You can't help but want to sign it yourself and hang it up!
Most importantly, it is the perfect daily devotional. I can't wait until the third one!

Sudie Rakusin's coloring book does two things that I think are very important. First, she provides a creative outlet for adult womyn by presenting rich drawings to be enjoyed via crayon-therapy. Second of all, she captures a variety of body styles, moods, and charateristics through her depictions of spirits and goddesses, rather than presenting any one conventional or sterotypical female figure. Together, these drawings weave the rich tapestry that makes up the female gender--no matter how you spell it (women, wommin, or womyn).

If your a liberal spirit minded adult, and you love to color, treat yourself to a coloring book by Sudie Rakusin. I try to color almost every day, my inner child calls out for a time to color. It is like meditation for me. If you like to color, give her coloring books a try. I have ordered, and reordered, and filled every book. I have just ordered another set of her two coloring books, and I'm wishing there was a third book. They are very addicting.

The pictures to color are good, but the paper is too thin if your coloring with pencils; the picture on the reverse side's colors will transfer onto the page opposite it. You have to put a sheet of paper between in order not to ruin the pictures already colored. I have colored other books where the paper is much thicker and this doesn't happen.
