My fifth coloring book, published this year, is Faith And Dreams: Weekly Inspiration And Scripture. Built on the foundations of my previous book Fanciful Garden: A Weekly Journal And Coloring Book, Faith And Dreams almost designed itself. I had created all the drawings for Fanciful Garden with journal writing and diary entries in mind. It was a new experience leaving blank space on my drawings and when I was done Continue reading

Designed with room on each page to write around and among the illustrations, perfect for creative journal writing or diary entries, there are also bonus pages with decorative borders for additional notes. Pure colorists can make use of that extra space to add their own details or create colorful and inventive background effects. Continue reading
The month of August has a definite smell to it… late summer mixed with a hint of fall and a dash of sweltering humidity,. It’s the kind of heat that when combined with a massive dew point is basically Mother Nature giving you a free steam bath and facial. Continue reading
Last night millions of Walking Dead Fans said a tearful and premature goodbye to Carl Grimes after eight years. RIP Carl. All I can say is God Forgive Gimple.
You, Scott Gimple, just changed The Walking Dead forever. Last night it lost it’s central theme of Hope, of Rick fighting to keep Carl safe, of every ounce of humanity that made the series so appealing to geeks like me in the very beginning. Since 10:00 pm October 31, 2010 I have been a passionate fan of this show – I have never missed a live airing of a new episode – but this morning I am sad and I am broken. Waiting for last night was like Continue reading
RIP Carl Grimes… even before it happens, in late February 2018 it seems, I am mourning the loss of The Walking Dead.
I know, I know, you hear it all the time from certain sections of the fanbase: “Bring back Beth or else!” and “If Darryl dies we riot and by riot we mean we will stop watching the show” and the age old standby, year after year, “start showing more zombies or Continue reading
It appears to be official. Morgan will be yanked from The Walking Dead and magically transplanted into the Fear The Walking Dead world. Why Scott Gimple, why?
Well, the only valid reason is Continue reading
Let us ponder that question…
They’re funny. That’s pretty much the whole reason. I mean, animals don’t wear sunglasses until humans put them on the poor unsuspecting dog or cat who was just sitting there, minding their own business. But once the sunglasses are on, Continue reading
August saw the publication of my third coloring book for adults, Fanciful Mandalas, Flowers And Patterns – A Stress Relief Coloring Book For Adults, available on Amazon. Fifty hand drawn illustrations fill this square colouring book, ready for colored pencils and pens.
I think this is my best coloring book by far. I had a blast drawing the mandalas in particular, which is a design element I had never Continue reading
Zazzle has just announced the addition of the new metallic foil ink print process on greeting cards and it’s very exciting! Real foil printing opens the door to customers who crave real shine and bling now being able to purchase one of a kind custom and personalized cards printed with real “sleek foil”.
It’s not hard to understand why all my weekend plans were thrown out the window when Zazzle metallic foil was announced late on Continue reading
I recently added Spoonflower to my roster of Print On Demand shops and I have been having quite a lot of fun playing with surface design and creating specialty fabrics. Spoonflower primarily sells one of a kind fabrics designed by independent artists but they also carry the same surface designs on wallpaper and wrapping paper, which is sure to make crafters happy.
While researching Spoonflower prior to opening my store, I stumbled on an Etsy Continue reading
