REVIEW: Here I am coloring again and loving it. The cover of this coloring book caught my eye. I’m not familiar with this artist or the Pop Manga pictures. I just wanted a chance to color these pages; they are really unique pictures; not like anything else out there.

My son says that this is a popular style that the kids have gone crazy over.  Note from the author: “In this collection, I hope to provide you with a really interesting and unique experience. I want whomever picks up this book and flips through its pages to feel an irresistible urge to fill in all its images with all sorts of vivid colors…..I have re purposed some of my artwork, adding cool patterned backgrounds to fill the negative space – and to give you more elements to color!”

I have a sample of uncolored pages from this book and the two that I colored. I had fun and felt free to create with colors and coloring style. The only thing I wished this artist had done in the book was make the girls smile. My son said that this is not what this genre is all about! I’ll have to look into that. I enjoyed the pages I colored. They made me think outside the box in reference to colors  and style. I look forward to coloring the other pages inside.

I’ll have more information about coloring featured here soon! I'll be talking about where the best collection of supplies are and different ideas for coloring! I'd love to hear your input!
