REVISED AND UPDATED based on readers requests and reviews! The interior of the book has crisper lines and illustrations, there are pre-views of some of the drawings on pages 3 and 4 in the pre-view, and the illustrations are larger (9"x7.5") with light gray headers and footers to reduce the visual interference with the illustrations.
Everyone loves quotes, especially if they are significant to a life situation, identify within a moment, inspire a person to do or be better, or provide a little pep-talk to motivate the person to a higher psychological mindset. Add beautiful mandala designs and you have the basis for artwork that is unique to itself, as well as inspirational to look at.
Coloring books will never lose their appeal - whether you are a pre-kindergarten toddler to the mature adult who is looking for something simple to play with for a solitary pursuit that provides artistic pleasure. This coloring book has the intensity of design in the mandalas, but also the simplicity of simple Zentangle inspired art (ZIA) that allow the reader (and budding artist) to pick and chose their favorite design, and then use colored pencils, markers, acrylics, or even crayons to add their own brilliant color combinations.
Coloring can be cathartic for those needing something that doesn't take a lot of analysis or thought, while allowing them to pick and chose their personal colors to create an artistic masterpiece. The page of mandalas and Zentangle inspired art (ZIA) allows relaxation while you wile away the hours or the day in your own mind.
There is no judgment here. Have fun. Use the baseline designs and sketches to play and have fun. If there are blank spaces, along the borders or inside the design, add your own lines and patterns.
