I first published these images 6 years ago with a proper publisher and everything. The publisher didn’t really believe adults would want to fill in coloring book images, but loved the illustrations, and decided to publish an awesome A3 luxury edition that was absolutely gorgoeus, but much too expensive to actually sell. The publisher said that they would publish a more affordable edition during the following years, but sadly it didn’t happen. When I after a year or two got the rights back for my images, I took a long time to do anything about it myself.
And then: The Coloring Book for Adults Boom!
And I didn’t do much. It took me a couple of years to hop on the train, and I know there are literally MILLIONS of coloring books out there, but THIS is mine and there will be more of them after this one. If you love fairytales and mythological creatures, and love detailed coloring book images, this is certainly a book for you.
So, I COULD have started the coloring book craze six years ago, but I didn’t. I hope that won’t be the greatest accomplishment that will be brought up in my obituary when I die… 😀
