It's the trio of 'Colour Me Mindful' sequels that everyone in the colouring world has been waiting for from illustrator Anastasia Catris, the follow up books to the first 3 in the series (Birds, Tropical & Underwater), published last August. These are up for release TODAY in the UK and I am honestly bowled over by the quality of all three of them. Anastasia has created yet more incredible illustrations all packed with detail, each book containing 50 stunning works of art that are crying out for colour! Here's a peek into Enchanted Creatures, Butterflies and Seasons.
The size and quality of the book is identical to the first 3 books in the series, with thick white paper and a handy travel size of just over 6x6 inches. The only qualm I have is that the illustrations mostly go right into the spine of the book, making it difficult to reach the centre without marking the facing page. They are also printed double sided, which is unfortunate as I colour mainly with alcohol markers, ruining the reverse image. Despite this, the number and calibre of art on offer is enough to brush those issues aside, and for just shy of £5 each you're not breaking the bank. The 6 books look lovely together on the shelf and I can't wait to add to the collection with Anastasia's next editions!
Here are my finished pages from each book, completed with Spectrum Noir and Promarkers.
I was given these books in exchange for an honest review. You can find your copies on Amazon, here:
