For my solo shows I like to have something other than just art for people to spend their money on.
This time around I thought I’d make a coloring book from my Sally illustrations. I went back over 20 of my current and previous pieces and gave them the line art treatment (which was a lot easier said than done) and put the book together.
I printed the pages on much nicer stock then your average coloring book and went with a full color cover. I sold the books for $5 each and was in profit territory in a couple of hours.
This project also serves as a vehicle to promote Sally’s new Instagram page. The best thing is that kids think she’s real and absolutely love it when she shares their coloring book pages.
