From Johanna Basford, 36 postcards for coloring in and sending to friends (or keeping for yourself!)
These clever postcards feature beautiful drawings from Lost Ocean, illustrator and ink evangelist Johanna Basford's magical journey beneath the waves. Color in the cards to bring to life shoals of exotic fish, curious octopi, and delicately penned seahorses, and then share the magic with your friends - that is, if you can bear to part with them! Each postcard is an invitation to an inky new world hidden in the depths of the sea. For pirates, mermaids, and undersea explorers of all ages.
PRAISE FOR JOHANNA BASFORD'S COLORING BOOKS
"The colorists have a queen, and her name is Johanna Basford." —New York Magazine
"Consider trading in your yoga mat for a set of markers and peruse the gorgeous gardens of Basford's imagination." —Huffington Post
"Artist Johanna Basford is at the forefront of the grown up coloring trend. Her whimsical artwork just makes us want to drop all our responsibilities and color forever." —Hello Giggles
"This is a breathtakingly beautiful coloring book, full of detail, whimsy, and possibilities. Inspiration invades at the turn of the first page and is guaranteed to capture the imagination and attention of any artist young and old." —The Children's Book Review
...but even smaller! Have a good pencil sharpener, and use it often!
I do love that these are smaller, stand-alone designs. Some are all-over that extend to the edges of the cards, but many are a single motif centered, and leaving room for an impressionistic background.
Given the smaller sizes, too, I am less tempted to get crazy obsessive with individual cells, and shading and blending.
I am having fun with these!
Gel pens work well for coloring, but I also have a friend that uses thin felt tip markers and says they work well as well. Just get someone you can draw thin lines with because some of the lines you'll have to color are very small.
