Coloring Book Interview Series, #6: Polly Lindsay



The thing about finding artists from our coloring books is that you never know what to expect from seeing the one illustration they submitted to us. What I found when I looked up Polly Lindsay was quite a surprise. Her art is pretty out of the ordinary from what we normally post here, but I got a little crush on her unexpected style of cutting and layering paper.

Coloring Book Interview Series #5:
Ellen Leber



One of my favorite things about our coloring books is looking up the artist of a page I really like, because I usually end up falling straight down their rabbit hole. For example, Ellen Leber's atmospheric illustrations contain a depth that sucks me right into her world, especially since they are sometimes actually three dimensional.

Tell me more, Ellen...

Colors and Crowded Faces

The sketchbooks that immediately catch my attention are the ones that are brimming with color. There is something scintillating about seeing so many colors confined to such a small space. It feels like bottled rampage even if the subjects in the pages are meek.





Each of the pages of Valerie Choi's recent sketchbook is crammed with characters piled atop of each other as burst of color overtakes them. It makes me feel as if the pages will break apart and the colors and caricatures will spill over onto her desk like water does when it can no longer be contained.

Valarie has documented her sketchbook in progress in this short video, which you won't want to miss.

Her Life with a Little Bit of Fiction



Paintings, drawings, words. All of it. I'm in love with Herikita's art. It speaks truths in soft colors and is quite often made-up of angled homes and rooftops, pets and insects, women and men, all of whom are sharing their awkward feelings and I just want more and more of it.

Her bio alone was enough to make me smile. Here's a small bit of my favorite part, "I work at midnight like Cinderella’s mice, almost always, when everyone is sleeping and something pops up in my mind.."

It's such a great visual.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #4: Maria Garcia



I've been a long time admirer of Maria Garcia's colorful and adventurous illustrations. Her drawings have a certain magic to them that makes memories of my favorite storybooks from when I was a kid start resurfacing. Read on to find out more about Maria and see how she colored in her own page from our third volume.

The Art of Taking Off Clothes



There are some pieces that even when they are complete, still look like works in progress. I LOVE IT. After all, that could probably apply to the majority of doodles.

Adara Sanchez Anguiana is a Spanish artist who has perfected the art of imperfection. If her illustrations looked any more "complete", I don't think they would have captured my attention as deeply. Her favorite subject is the human form and WOW is she good at making every pose and angle of it mesmerizing. My favorite is her Take Off Your Clothes series, there's something great about how she captures people just in the middle of a quick intimate motion.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #3: Paulo Correa



Illustrations in our coloring books all have their own personality, that's what happens when every page comes from a different artist. One of the stand-out styles is Philippino artist Paulo Correa. His sketchbook is full of a cast of crazy characters and so much going on in every image that you'll miss half the details if you only look at it for a few seconds. Click below to read his interview!
