Preview of the New Coloring Book

Just saw this in an e-mail newsletter from Ellen Million Graphics* (the publisher of my coloring books and other coloring books for grown-ups).  Eek!  It's a preview of all the pages that are in the new half-size Sprites coloring book, vol. 1.

The Sprites coloring books will be in a smaller format (easy to fit into your bag and carry anywhere and whip it out and color whenever you have time to kill).  And fewer pages than the full-size cousins (so that the books will be able to actually close and don't look as if exploding LOL).  Same paper stock and one-sided printing as the other books.  This book is rated "Pretty Easy" so it is suitable for children and adults who love these little flower babies.

You can order this coloring book right now at Ellen Million Graphics at this link.

I will be listing this coloring book at the AuroraWings Etsy shop once I have stock at the house and be able to process your orders right away.

The book will probably become available on Amazon here shortly as well since Ellen sells all her coloring books there as well.

* Ellen Million Graphics has been publishing coloring books for grown-ups way before 'adult coloring' became the big trend it is today.  The current trend still has a major focus on mandalas and repetitive doodle-like designs mass produced by large publishing houses, but Ellen's books are created in a totally different way.  She is a fantasy artist herself, and her business has always focused on products that bring other fantasy artists together and promote their work.  She used to publish a monthly e-zine called EMG-Zine with articles, tutorials, fiction, poems, and artwork contributed by fellow fantasy artists.  Ellen also is the tireless host of Sketch Fest, a monthly event, where anyone can give prompts for participating artists to select and work on.  Ellen Million Graphics' coloring books are books of fantasy themes by fantasy artists.   You'll still find princesses and mermaids, but the lines are more complex and geared toward teen & grown-ups.  Some are single-artist titles like my books, and many others are multi-artist collaboration compilations (I contribute line art for these, too.).  Whatever books you choose, you can feel good about supporting the creative efforts of individual artists, each one of them is a micro-business of their own.
