Coloring Book Interview Series, #13: Aphrodite Delaguiado



Aphrodite Delaguiado is a designer and illustrator who thinks with ink. What does that even mean? She understands mistakes aren't all that bad, and sometimes end up being the coolest part of the drawing. I poked Aphrodite with questions about her art and what I got in response was inspiring thoughts on doodling and some pretty worldly context for her illustration in our Coloring Book Volume 4.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #12: Muxxi



Who are these strange little party animals? They're Muxxi's saccharine circus of colorful creatures inviting you to come play. Her illustration in our 4th Coloring Book is one of those pages that takes you by surprise as you're flipping through the book, especially if you aren't expecting a coloring page to be made of mostly black (I wasn't).

I poked her with a few curiosities about her friends with funny faces and candy colors, so come read the interview and join the festivities.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #11: Ana Sebastián

There's a certain cat-loving illustrator from Madrid that I want to introduce you to. She's got a super cool drawing of a fascinatingly strange man published in our Coloring Book Volume 4, just one of a huge variety of odd and unusual characters she has created. Doodlers, meet Ana Sebastián.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #10: Amelia Grace

One of the best parts of our coloring book experience (besides the coloring) is finding new artists on every page that I might never have come across otherwise. Amelia Grace is the first artist from our newest Coloring Book (Volume 4), that I jumped to contact after I saw her page. Read the interview to find out about her spunky and fantastical troupe of characters!

EXCLUSIVE: He Doodles All Over Travel Passports and They Still Work!

We've been obsessed with Léonard Combier's doodles ever since he first messaged us about his art and an image of an inked up passport blew our minds, so it's incredibly exciting to finally share these exclusive images with you!



Sometimes Doodle Addicts find themselves in a pinch where there's no paper in reach, and that's when those of us who are in too deep start reaching for anything nearby that could possibly work. Léonard Combier, a 24 year old French illustrator enjoying life in Berlin, was bored in class with no paper to doodle on. A friend of his had their passport in their pocket, so Combier asked them if he could draw something on it. Like a good friend, they were excited about the idea, passed their passport over to him, and let Combier run wild with it. Combier liked the result so much that he continued to reach for different people's passports.

Does doodling on your passport cause an issue at the airport? Apparently not. These are not expired passports, and the original owners went on to travel abroad with them even after they've been drawn on. Combier assured me that his friends have crossed many countries, including the US, with their inked-up passports. They say customs officers usually look closely at the drawings, thinking it's part of the printed design of the passport, before they realize it's hand drawn—and they really like it!





When I asked the artist if it feels strange drawing on someone's passport, Combier said, "In a way it's better than drawing on a normal sheet of paper. All the little patterns that are already on the passport give more relief to my drawings. It's very funny to play with all the visas, the stamps, to write little messages that will be read by the custom officers, sometimes even a bit provocative. It's also very nice to know that the owner of the passport will have my drawing within reach for ten years, on an official document. A bit like a tattoo."

If you're in Berlin, own a valid passport and want a drawing, don't hesitate to send a message (and a Like) on Léonard Combier's Facebook page.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #9: Morkwork



Morkwork is a super-duo team of artists who describe themselves as a "house of ideas." I get good vibes from their playful dynamic and childishly carefree doodles that I can't get enough of, so I asked Glenis and Marcos a few questions about their projects and Morkwork in general!

Coloring Book Interview Series, #8: Gizem Vural





Dreams, adventure, and coffee! What more could you want? These are my favorite things that I find constantly in Gizem Vural's playfully surreal illustrations. You have to read more about how she never outgrew playing with coloring books (like most of us here) and it led her to being published in ours.
