This week saw the release of the Colour Me Mindful series of Adult Colouring Books by Orion Publishing, as review samples to Book Bloggers, Art Book Bloggers and generally awesome people on social media. Consequently I woke up to an awesome amount of tweets, Intsagram tags and mentions on July 6th with a lot of very excited colouring-in aficionados showing me their post and some of them even sharing what they had already done.
I haven’t actually seen the books myself yet, but from the response they seem to be getting from Twitter and Instagram, I am really happy with how they have come out. I am actually pretty excited to colour them myself when I receive my comp copies! Everyone seems to be having so much fun it would be a shame not to join in! (Plus, I REALLY wanted to colour them as I was working on them!)
It is a little bit surreal seeing so many people colouring in my work – and they haven’t even been released yet! (FYI they are still available for pre-order on Amazon and are due for release in the UK on July 30th and in the USA on August 25th – note that America refers to the series as ‘COLOR Me Mindful’) But the whole experience so far has been amazing fun and it is always interesting to see what colours people choose – especially from my perspective as I obviously had my own colours and patterns in mind as I was drawing them.
I have managed to collect a couple of different pages together thanks to the lovely folk on the #ColourMeMindful Hashtag on Twitter and I really can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with! Each of these images are reproduced with the kind permission of the lovely people mentioned in the tweets below their pics. The header image of the physical books are also from @MamaMummyMum – Thank you all so much!
If you have links to your blog/Instagram/Twitter and would like to share your coloured pages from the Colour Me Mindful series, please comment below. I would love to see them and share them around. Don’t forget to leave your thoughts on the book on their Amazon Pages and Goodreads!
