It’s been a couple months since I launched Illustrated Children’s Moments and it’s been going really well. So far, we have over 1,400 subscribers to our email newsletter, and people have been responding very positively to the various illustrations we’ve been selling.
One item I hadn’t expected to be so popular was coloring pages. Part of that, I’m sure, is fueled by the adult coloring craze that is happening now. And coloring is just fun.
For the past couple years, I’ve loved creating zentangles and other pattern illustrations, and these naturally lend themselves really well toward coloring pages. And the best part is they work for both adults and children. Adults can really get detailed and create beautiful designs out of the more intricate patterns and shapes, and children…well, they just have fun with the coloring pages.
Through Illustrated Children’s Moments, I’m going to be selling some Advent coloring pages that work extremely well for both adults and children. I’ll be selling them as a 5-pack, corresponding to each different week of Advent and then one for Christmas (the words in the center are Hope, Joy, Peace, Love and Emmanuel), but I’m also selling them as huge, coloring posters. They will be 4′ x 3′ and are an ideal gift idea for families as we approach the winter. I can picture families all gathering around the kitchen or dining room table to spend a little time each night coloring in the large designs, or maybe a group of friends get together on a snowy day to spend time hanging out, talking and coloring.
Are you getting together with a lot of family over Thanksgiving and Christmas? A giant coloring sheet would be great to just have set up on a table that people could work on throughout the day.
So, these posters, in addition to our Advent resource for churches and families, An Illustrated Advent: Engaging Activities for the Season, will be available November 16. But if you want to pre-order your coloring posters now, you can do that below.
I’m really excited about being able to offer these – and about the response that we’ve seen just in the past 24 hours. If you don’t want the actual physical posters, but would just be interested in the vector image files, you can purchase those here.
