Science Coloring Books - Finito!

So after 72 drawings, 72 inks, and 72 digital enchantments - plus 3 full color paintings and digital enhancements - my coloring book project is complete and on its way to being published!

This process and style isn't like anything I've done in the past, and I'm really excited that I had the opportunity to explore this venue. With most of my monochromatic work done in graphite with tone, I'm happy to report that through many trials, errors, numerous conversations and advice from my peers, I was able to establish a strong line-work style. Here's a little sample of "What are the Seasons?" section on Fall showing the three step process I used to create the line work.

The books should be out in the fall, and you can check the publisher's website, BooksbyKathe, for updates on its status. They are great activity books and I have to say that I even learned things (especially about volcanos!) that I might not have known before.

To see more samples of this style check out the new Line Art section of my online portfolio!
