The Definitive 12 Days of Christmas!


There comes THAT time in any illustrator’s life.  Yes, there’s the first magazine publication.  The first published book.  But to challenge myself and get into the holiday spirit, I conquered the 12 Days of Christmas!  Next stop, illustrate the horoscope pages…

Have you preordered my book Edible Paradise: A Coloring Book of Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables yet?  It’s never too late to kick off a year filled with creativity and seasonal eating…

    Hi phillygirlie, Thanks for your love and support. At the moment, I don’t have an eshop, but if you would like to commission something, send me an email at Edible Paradise is a coloring book! But it’s still worthwhile. Please preorder today! jkw

    Hi Jessie, I love your artwork and would love to purchase some of your prints. Is Edible Paradise only a coloring book?

  3. thefrancofly says:

    Hi Cathleen, Wow thanks for such kind words! At the moment, I don’t have an eshop for prints. But hopefully that will happen in the New Year. I will keep you posted, ok? Please order Edible Paradise! It’s even better than the others, if I dare say so myself. All the best, Jessie

    Hey Jessie,
    Love everything you do! That being said – can one purchase one of your 12 days of Christmas? I simply love “3 French Hens.” This would just be the perfect picture in my kitchen – and give it the final French touch. I have your coloring books and took one to Paris with me the month of September. I sat in the Luxembourg Gardens and had the best time coloring – many people stopped – looked and commented!

    Hi Mrs. Ansorge! Thank you so much! I may do a book signing in Chicago in March. So hopefully you all can show me your progress then. Say hi to the girls. All the best from Paris, Jessie

    Hey Jessie!
    Love your 12 days of Christmas. Also want you to know that I have pre ordered 3 of your coloring books. One each for Emily, Amanda and myself. All three of us have rediscovered the joy of coloring! Looking forward to your book and sharing our finished pages with each other.
