Following up on our post earlier today, here is another collection of our favorite adult coloring books for the season, along with a whole pile of free coloring pages! This time we also include a cheerful and creative activities book the kids will love ... try some of these tomorrow and you won't need a baby sitter! If you really make some killer pages, snap a quick photo and send it in! Here are our titles :
Any or all of these special coloring books would not only make great gifts, but will amuse everyone for hours while teaching some valuable skills! Most of these are printed on single side, heavy paper, and perforated for easy removal from the book. Have a great time coloring these free pages, and have a wonderful holiday season! Serious adult coloring books!
Here we are in the heat of the summer, and National Coloring Day is right upon us! We like to celebrate all week! No matter where you are or what you're doing, it's a refreshing treat to dig into those crayons, colored pencils, markers or your favorite media and do some art. When you get involved and sail into that coloring 'zone' your troubles just drift away. If you need a little help getting ideas or getting started -- or if you've got some bored kids on your hands, have at any of these free samples! August 1, 2016
Is it enough to have art museums, and then art museum web sites, and then art museum web sites that consolidate other art museums? There are all kinds of web sites that scrape the web to consolidate content into one place. Look at the stock photography industry, or the Photoshop tutorials genre. Are you ready for an art museum site that will 'vend' art as an ecommerce add-on for YOUR site? Welcome 1,000 museums! July 28, 2016
A booming industry often overlooked is the gaming industry ... no, I'm not talking about video or computer games, I'm talking about Las Vegas! I had the best time photographing these slot machine headers, I began trying to guess the base type fonts and the processes used to print these lighted headers! It's fun and fascinating!

Here we go with a lot of fun video -- just in time for the 4th of July! Jenny Claire Fox has it all going on -- and quite an online entrepreneur, killing it on YouTube, Twitter and all the social networks! Some of these tutorials are amazing ... so good it makes me feel like doing my own nails! July 1, 2016
While we're talking about color and design, we cannot neglect mentioning the Celtic arts and design. So, here we'll take a look at 60 clip art and reference files you can download and experiment with! But first, let me introduce you some valuable resources available for discovering the Celtic arts!
From the early medieval art of Britain and Ireland came the Book of Kells and other glorious pieces of illuminated art. This is what "Celtic art" evokes for much of the art world even though the most inspiring work was created nearly a thousand years earlier. It's a fascinating art genre well worth some study.

We ran across Laura again quite by accident, but thought for some reason we had met her before -- which we had -- we featured her in 2013. Low and behold we catch back up with her and discover she's continuing as one of the masters of lettering fonts in the world! Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Lura Worthington . . . . April 29, 2016
