coloring book based on my doodles challenge

Coloring book

On june 22, I decided to draw a doodle, every day for a whole year.
My intention was to get better at anime, as I really love that style of art.I also wanted to get faster at drawing, more sure with my line work and grow in my art.
Soon I noticed that anime is not ‘’my thing’’, what I really love to draw is women bodies.The softness, the roundness. The deep connection women have with earth and life. Women bodies represent something deeply spiritual, a way of being connected to all that surrounds them.
At one point these beautiful women started to whisper to me, and the little poems accompanying them is their story.The wisdom they wanted to share with you all.Looking through this book, I hope you enjoy the adventure of this year as much as I did.

About me

From 1994 I worked together with my ex-partner in the jewelry business for 15 years, faceting gemstones and carving small sculptures.

After 19 years together we split up, and I fell into a really dark hole, lost touch with my emotions and my art. I couldn’t create anything. All I could do was keep going through the motions of everyday life.

One day, 3 years ago, I walked into the little second hand store, where I often went to get dvd’s and chat a bit, and the owner came over to me and hands me the first 6 seasons of Supernatural. She gave them to me for free as they were in English and she couldn’t sell them (I live in the French speaking part of Switzerland)
And I thought to myself, ok why not, I’ll give it a try.

As soon as I started watching, I was pulled in. Man did I cry, a lot, for the first time in years.
My emotions came back, my desire to create… it was magical to feel again.

I have never ever been fan of anything before, had never drawn fan art, but this show inspired me to try my hand at portrait drawing. It was super difficult in the beginning, but I had Scout and Angie encouraging me to keep on going. That was in 2016 and I am amazed at the responses I get on my portraits.

Last year I decided to start doing ‘’a doodle a day’’ for 365 days; to learn how to work a bit faster, have clearer lines and grow in my art. I am now at day 286.

From these doodles a lot has grown. A coloring book for one. But what touches my heart most is that one mom told me that she is using the doodles to tell her little girl bedtime stories.

After finishing the doodle year I am planning on making some color prints, and a book.

Life is exiting again and I can’t wait to see what it has in store.
