There are just a few days left to secure a copy of Amelia’s Colourful Colouring Companion before Christmas. My Kickstarter Campaign closes on Monday 23rd November and I’ll be producing as many copies as have been paid for and possibly a few more if I raise enough money, to be sold online. It makes an awesome and unusual gift so make sure you get it now! (I sold out of my last book within a month of printing it). Here’s a few more updates:
Dancers by Jennifer Leem Bruggen
Through the Window by Hazel Partridge
Colouring Print Sets:
I’ve made a fabulous addition to the campaign in the form of A3 colouring print sets: 6 lucky artists from the book have been chosen for a publishing deal with East End Prints, who will produce high quality prints of their double pages: one full colour A3 print and one black line A3 print to colour in. These beautiful prints can be displayed on the wall alone or as a spectacular diptych of your making! The twin sets will retail at £19.95 but we’re offering them at a special price of just £15 prior to their launch at the London Illustration Fair in December.

Amelia’s Colourful Colouring Companion has been featured on Grafik Magazine, Creative Boom, Anorak Magazine, Bust, Colour with Claire and Made in Shoreditch. Read revealing interviews on The Early Hour, Motherland and Mumspo if you want to know about life as a single ‘mumpreneur’. I also wrote my first ever blog for the Huffington Post, titled 8 Things You Didn’t Know About Colouring Books For Adults, which I have also posted on Amelia’s Magazine. This is well worth a read if you want to know why colouring is so damn fantastic. It is aimed at people who are not sure what all the fuss is about and perhaps don’t think that colouring is for them, (like myself for instance, not long ago!)
Artists from the book colour each other’s work:
In other news, I’ve asked the artists featured in Amelia’s Colourful Colouring Companion to colour in each other’s artwork and the results have been so fantastic that I’m already cooking up ideas for an exhibition. I hope these examples will whet your own colouring appetites and cannot wait to see what you do with your pages.
