“Animals & Creatures: A Coloring Book”
This beautiful 44-page coloring book features the best of Nicholas Ivins’ black and white wildlife and fantasy artwork, ready to be re-imagined by your colors!
Book measures 8.5 x 11″ and is printed on thick, bright white paper. Pages are single-sided so bleeding through is not a problem!
The process for all my work begins as a drawing (usually in ink), with color added afterward in a variety of manners. Since all my work exists as ink or pencil drawings, it seemed like a pretty straightforward idea of assembling them into a book for others to color.
Coloring is the most interesting part of the process of creating my work. Typically, I don’t give a huge amount of thought to color until it’s time to do it, so doing it is an interesting process of discovery. It’s where the mood and tone comes into focus, where the art really comes to life for me, so I’m happy to share that with others!
