Hey everyone! Some of you may already know from following me on Facebook and Instagram that I am currently working on completing a couple of coloring books. Well, the first book is off to the publisher to be printed!! Once I get the proof I will determine if I like the quality and decide if it's the route I want to go rather than self bind which was the original plan. I realized that I just don't really have the time to do that right now. Getting them printed will allow me to get them done and ship them FAST! Plus I'm willing to pay a little more out of pocket if it means superior quality and quicker service for you guys!

There will be one book for all ages that includes 21 coloring pages of 21 different horses with blank backgrounds. (Great for the younger audience or for those days you don't feel like coloring crazy backgrounds or you can even draw in the backgrounds yourself)!

The second book will be geared more towards adult/advanced colorers. It will include the original 21 horses PLUS 10 bonus pages of 10 new horses for a total of 31 unique pages to color! Each of the 31 pages will also have a crazy (mandala/fractal/paisly, etc) background to color as well!

Each image was hand drawn and hand inked from photos that I personally took. Each background is also original and were hand drawn in the computer. This way it is a very unique book that you won't find anywhere else!

If you'd like to stay up to speed on the progress and release info, head on over to my facebook page (http://facebook.com/artbycriley) and give it a like! Newsletter followers are also notified of any new releases when they're ready and sometimes even get first dibs! You can sign up for my newsletter on my website here (http://crileycustoms.weebly.com).

I'm still working on backgrounds for the second book so that one might take a little longer to have ready. Once both are done and ready, I'll post the release info :)

Woo Hoo!!! Finally finished the 2nd book yesterday and sent the files in for approval. Just received the digital proof of the second coloring book this morning and everything looks good!
So I just ordered the hard copy proof! Estimated delivery is next week but I really hope it gets here sooner like the last one did! As soon as it comes in, looks good and I finish setting up my account info with the publisher, presales will start!!!!! :woohoo

If I can get them printed in time, DEFINITELY! Still waiting on the hard proof of the 2nd book. If it looks good I just have to set up my account with the publisher and I should be able to take pre-orders and order some stock to fulfill that plus some extra for the show and Breyerfest!
