Free colouring page and a new reward level...
 
On Friday or Saturday morning, my mother-in-law posted a stock photo of a pair of dirty hands holding dirty pastels with this phrase in a clear, respectable font. And I thought, hrm, I like that, and made this colouring page. If Patreon is working correctly today *fingers crossed*, the higher-res PDF version of this piece of art is attached to this post as a file that can be downloaded and saved to your computer to print and colour at your leisure and as many times as you want! After talking to people and even making a LiveJournal poll on the subject, I decided that there was enough interest in colouring pages and the idea of a $7.10 reward level promising two colouring pages per month, that I decided that I would try it out because if anything, I think it would be a good practice to get into, coming up with two original drawings every month. Truthfully, I'm a little afraid that I won't be able to fulfill the obligation of 2 pages per month considering from putting pencil to paper to finished PDF just for this simple one, it took me 4 or 5 days. This doesn't count the whole "coming up with ideas" part that precedes the pencil to paper step. That's where you guys come in. You're gonna talk to me if I ask for input, right? My world is pretty limited to the inside of this house so a lot of real world scenarios just don't filter into my bubble. I want to draw my girls (and boys!) in all kinds of places and situations, saying all kinds of different things. Some colouring pages will be super detailed for the more hardcore therapeutic colourers among us, while others will be more about the message and be a little more basic, like the one in this post. These are meant to be things you may want to colour and hang up in your office or cubicle or houseboat or 5-star hut on your private island for inspiration. Some of them may even be more geared toward your kids. Who knows? What they are, or end up being, depend on what becomes of this community, and that part is up to you. :o) I redid my Patreon page with a new introduction and the new reward level so if any of this sounds good to you, wander on over there and take a look!
