Award-winning artist Mary Ogle’s Orangeroof Zoo is the next logical step in the adult coloring book revolution. Combining finely crafted and detailed line drawings with a fascinating narrative, Orangeroof Zoo is both coloring book and graphic novel.
The book begins with a curious summons. L receives a piece of unsolicited correspondence and must choose whether to accept a cryptic offer of transportation. Confused by the situation and perplexed by the enigmatic Z, a mystified L follows the instructions provided. The reader follows L and Z’s intriguing interaction through a series of black and white cards, becoming a part of the story by bringing the illustrations to life through their own creative application of color.

The original, hand-drawn alphabet in the Art of FoxVox Celtic Alphabet Coloring Book by Kristen N. Fox includes classic Celtic elements such as intricate knotwork and circular spiral art, as well as leaf and vine motifs. The compositions and decorations are uniquely tailored to each letter so no two are exactly alike, but together make a beautifully cohesive set. Coloring these letters can be a fun way to teach the alphabet to young children. Or you can choose a letter that’s a person’s name initial, color it as you like, carefully cut its page free of the book, and frame it for them. And of course, you can always just color them for the fun of it – following the knotwork as it loops around, and seeing where the path takes you! No matter what the subject, coloring is creative and relaxing – enjoy!

These aren’t your standard coloring book images. They are the kind that are infused with nature, the kind that allow you to color what you see in them. We don’t dictate your vision.
Every image in this book started as a photograph of a living butterfly. I use soft lines and gray areas, since nature isn’t usually hard and black and white. There is more gray that you may be used to. With your choice of coloring medium, whether it is pens, markers, pencils, crayons or paints, you discover what you are meant to see in each image.
You are in control, your mind is in control.
Color your stress away by taking our butterfly sketches and creating the images that are in your mind. Crazy colors or realistic colors – the choice is yours.

About Coloring To Relax The Mind: Geometric Designs Volume 1:
The Coloring To Relax The Mind is an Adult Coloring Book that will help you to relax. Psychologists say that activities such as coloring which immerses us in one activity helps our mind and relaxes us. We all lead very busy lives with family, work commitments, health issues and much more. There is so much going on.
We neglect the one thing we should not and that is ourselves. We need to MAKE time for ourselves. When we were children (and for some of us, that was some time ago), we found enjoyment in creating art by coloring. We spent many hours hunched over our coloring books with crayons (or pencils and/or markers)…

About Meditations Through Coloring:
Meditation is a stress-reduction technique implemented the world over. Although the techniques vary, people from across the globe embrace meditation as an essential part of their daily practice. As scientists and psychologists explore this ancient path today, they are discovering alternatives to traditional meditation. One of these is coloring. Coloring is a low-stress activity that invokes deep focus and relaxation. The act of coloring can unlock hidden creative potential while alleviating stress by allowing the practitioner to concentrate on specific patterns and colors while letting go of any worries and concerns. This volume showcases images inspired by the ancient art form of henna tattoos, known as mehndi. Throughout the world, mehndi is incorporated into special celebrations and rites of passage, ranging from weddings to childbirth. Experienced meditation practitioners and general readers alike will enjoy Meditations through Coloring as they explore intricate patterns and the calming interaction of color and space on every page.

About Adult Coloring Book – Color Your World Calm – Book 1 – 50 Mandalas:
I hope you enjoy coloring these 50 mandalas and find some calm moments amid the hustle and bustle of modern life. To ensure you have a mandala for various amounts of coloring time, I’ve included some quick and easy ones amongst the more intricate ones.
Maybe you’d like to frame your finished artwork. My adult daughter laminates hers and uses them for placemats… see what uses you can put your mandalas to, aside from admiring the finished product and enjoying the coloring process.
Each image has a page of its own as per one sided printing so you won’t be bothered by losing the image on the reverse of the page.
TIP: if you use markers for coloring, make sure to place a piece of light cardboard under the page you are coloring as it will prevent bleed-through onto the page behind it.
Finally, I wish you all the best as you relax with your coloring projects.
