Product Description

From the artist and the publisher that brought you the hugely successful Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest – this special artist’s edition features 20 beautiful pull out art prints for colouring in. Colouring fans of all ages will enjoy immersing themselves in a selection of the most popular artworks from the original book now presented in a new large-scale format for maximum colouring enjoyment. Each detailed illustration is printed on high-quality card and can be removed easily for framing or craft projects. I draw pictures and I make colouring books! Welcome to my world… Tumble down the rabbit hole and find yourself in my inky black and white Wonderland… I’m an illustrator and ink evangelist who prefers pens and pencils to pixels. I create intricate hand drawn illustrations predominately although not exclusively in black and white. My creativity is cultivated by a curious imagination and a delight in the fantastic. Much of my work has roots in the flora and fauna that surrounded me growing up on my parent’s fish farm in rural Scotland. I graduated in 2005 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee with my degree in Printed Textiles and a portfolio stuffed with monochrome silk screen prints and drawings. Following that I set-up my little studio and began on my mission to vanquish the vector and champion the (wobbly) hand drawn line. Every piece I create starts life as a simple pencil sketch evolving into a rambling pen and ink drawing usually spanning several sheets of paper. I love the tactile nature of the materials I use and the joy of smudgy fingerprints. My delicate hand inked designs intend to charm and delight inviting you to peer closer and discover the hidden intricacies. For me computer generated graphics can feel cold and soulless whereas hand drawing captures a sense of energy and character which no pixel can ever replicate. -Johanna Basford
