OPEN BRIEF for ARTISTS: Amelia’s Magazine Colourful Colouring Companion

Announcing a brand new exciting Open Brief for all artists, illustrators and image makers! Make sure you get involved and submit your work for my exclusive collaborative colouring in book for adults. DEADLINE EXTENDED until 14th Sept 2015, details at bottom of blog.

Written by Amelia Gregory

Amelia's Magazine issue 4 cover colouring in
Have you noticed the huge trend for colouring books aimed at adults? It hasn’t escaped my notice: I included a series of colouring in pages in issue 4 of Amelia’s Magazine way back in 2005, complete with a scratch 'n' sniff cover and a free set of smelly branded pens to colour in those pages (above). 10 years on the concept has gone mainstream, and the time is right to contribute something a bit different to the market: a beautifully curated colouring book that features the work of multiple contributors who are working in diversely different but appealing styles. I will include artwork that features a wide range of themes, creating a book that goes beyond the feel of most pretty decorative colouring books. I want this book to appeal as much to men as it does to women! (and I therefore encourage lots of male artists to contribute).
