One of the neat projects I am in process on is a companion coloring book for my Emily of New Moon graphic novel. This coloring book will have over 30 high quality images including many familiar artwork pictures from the webcomic.
I also made sure I incorporated more of the wallpaper backgrounds. These are based on historical Victorian wallpapers, because it seemed an appropriate place to remember Emily's trick of "holding fairy papers in the air".
My hope is that this coloring book is appropriate for any age to enjoy. The adult who likes to use fancy gel pens and prismacolor pencils for their coloring, and children. As soon as it is available for purchase, I will let you all know!
First, I'm still here. As the coronavirus interrupted all of our lives, world-wide, it interrupted mine and my plans, too. All is well and I've been working away during the shutdown. And now things are starting to get back to normalcy, a bit. Good stuff is on the horizon and I am looking forward to sharing more about that. But first, something I've been meaning to share here for awhile:
I've been working on a graphic novel of the classic story, Emily of New Moon, for over a year, now. Some of my paintings are related to this work. But I haven't yet shared about the graphic novel here, on my website. So, first I want to do that. The above image is a gif, with movement added. Because, art can be more fun with movement.
I have the first 25 pages of the graphic novel uploaded on the media site, www.dejavudimensions.com and you can find those there and see if you can find the movement in each one. This was a project of love, but it has turned into a wonderful business opportunity. This graphic novel is going to be turned into a dining experience, where you can visit select restaurants and enjoy a meal while you enjoy the show. We're working away on this project, and have been for months. To see a bit more:
I'll be updating with more about this, as we get further in, but you can also follow along on the Facebook page for the graphic novel, which can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/DejaVuDimensionsEoNM/
