The little coloring project that I was working on is finally ready to go. Digital Weaves: Vector Graphic Coloring Pages Inspired by Ancient Knot-work is now available at Amazon.com. Here is the back cover copy:
Coloring therapy might be a new buzz word but the idea of coloring to reduce stress isn’t – Carl Jung, the famous psychiatrist had patients color in pictures 100 years ago. Various forms of decorative knot-work have been used for centuries. From the intricate cording of the Chinese to the illuminated manuscripts of the Celts to the wildly imaginative carvings of the Norse, these patterns of lines have provided an endless source of fascination. Digital Weaves combines these two ideas into one book that soothes the mind. It uses the newest digital technology to create stunningly complicated artwork inspired by the knots of old. Ease away your stress and tension as you indulge your inner artist.
I’ve gathered together some of the coloring pages I have done over time. You can see them by clicking the button in the menu or just click here. I do take requests – and I do commissions – if you’re looking for something in particular. Drop me an email.
It is Valentine’s Day – time to keep up the tradition and post a holiday-themed page of color-able knotwork pattern. The page is sized to fit 8.5×11 paper. Click on the thumbnail for a full-size image. Feel free to share this page with those you love.
I’ve been cranking out a lot of knotwork patterns lately – nearly 3 dozen as a matter of fact. It’s all part of what I hope will be a coloring book that comes out in 2015. An element in one of the patterns I created reminded me of a wing. I started playing around with it tonight and worked up this design. I think it would make a nice pendant – what about you?
It has been a crazy busy season for me – I work part-time at a big box store unloading trucks and there has been literal tons of stuff to unload lately. I’ve also been doing some craft work for stuff over on my Etsy store and working on a whole bunch of knotwork style pictures for a coloring book project that I hope to pull together in the coming year.
But for right now I just want to wish everyone a happy holiday. I was up in the wee hours of the morning and put together this coloring page that you all can feel free to print out and share./ I hope the holidays and the new year find you and yours happy and healthy!
I have a new shirt and print design up for sale over at Society 6. Great for showing your deaf pride.
Here is another of what I call my “digital knotwork” pieces for you to print and color. I always find it very meditative to work on these pieces and I hope you enjoy them as well.
