coloring kits!

About a month ago I was at The Sunday Market and got talking with Diana Heredia who also had a stall there. She makes beautiful prints, cards, pillows, bags, as well as children's clothes and much more. Her business is called Léon and Coco and you can find her website here. After seeing my work she asked me if I would be interested in drawing something for her coloring kits and I was immediately interested.

My original idea was to draw a set of birds but when I did some initial sketches it turned out to be pretty boring for coloring in, not much detail and the like. Then I was reminded by some drawing I had done a couple of years ago when I was interested in bird houses and children's books. I've always loved to imagine the homes of animals and to see them in cartoons like Tom and Jerry (mice in the wall).

Here are three of the final 6 designs:

above: Bird Dwelling

above: Worm Dwelling

Diana's Coloring Kit with trucks etc.

My designs are not currently available but when they are I will let eveyone know! In the mean time, check out the site and esty shop....
