Ever wondered what it looks like when a coloring book author colors in her own book? As my weekends and all my free time can attest, it looks a little something like this. Flaunting my book around town, my friends and family have experienced a bit of premature performance anxiety seeing my edition limitée copy of Edible Paradise: A Coloring Book of Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables (Rizzoli’s Universe Imprint) But fret not! This like a serving suggestion for when you receive your copy.
When I was in the process of dreaming up the book, I didn’t think of it solely as a black and white artifact. Working so passionately with color in the rest of my work, I definitely thought of the color breakdown by seasons, the potential for good shading and all the little details (hello ladybugs!) to bring the still lives to life. So coloring in 3 limited edition copies brings the project full circle for me. But more about that very soon!
And celebrate the countdown to the release date March 15th, 2016 on Instagram.
