Folk Art Tattoo Coloring Book Project: Wolf Tattoo

It's been a bit since I was able to put another of these up, but I am excited that one of my regular clients asked for a wolf in the style I've been working on. Here's the video of making her tattoo! I've got a new coloring book page in progress based on this piece that I look forward to sharing soon. Thanks for watching.

Coloring Book Page: Bees

The latest video I created for my new coloring book proposal, the bees. While there are more tattoos and coloring book pages forthcoming, these bees are special as they are the last to have been included in my completed proposal to a publisher, and the tattoos this page are based on are currently residing on the knees of my partner in life and art endeavors. Hopefully in the not too distant future I'll have good news about this book project. Until then, thanks again to all for sharing my videos, getting tattoos, and generally being supportive of my work.

 

 

Folk Art Tattoo Coloring Book Page: Flamingo

After having done many folk art tattoos from my new series, I have taken these designs and created the coloring pages which I am putting together for a new book. It is my goal to have this book be a fun thing to color and collect, and to be a valuable reference book for professional tattooers. The first time lapse video I made inking a page at twice the size of the final output is the flamingo, which was also the first tattoo I made for this project. Enjoy!

 

 

I Love My Library pin, available again!

This enamel pin is available again as a fundraiser for EveryLibrary.org. Extra exciting this year is that as a monthly donor, your dollars will be matched to go even farther to keep libraries open! Show your support here. I am honored to have created this design for such an amazing organization, with my partner & librarian Muriel for such a great cause. Look cool, feel great about doing good for the community. 

I Love My Library

Free Bookmarks for Libraries and Book Lovers

As part of my Folk Art Coloring Book Project, I took four of my existing art pieces and created these bookmarks.They are 2.5"x7", and come arranged four to a page in a .pdf for easy printing and cutting.

Some of you may know that many libraries don't have the finances to easily meet all the needs of patrons for a variety of resources, including ordering pre-made bookmarks and templates. To say thank you to the many libraries and their staff for being a regular and amazing part of my life and livelihood, I created these designs for everyone that may be downloaded and distributed for free. These can be used as tiny coloring book pages as well for coloring book meetup groups, play dates, and book clubs.

The .zip file containing all four sheets I've made so far is here.

I'd love to see these out in the world and in use! Send me pictures of these from your library or at home, and I'll be happy to share them online. My contact page is here. You can also reach me/tag me on Instragram @levigreenacres.

If you recognize libraries as a necessary and wonderful part of your community, and want to know how to help support them at home and across the country, please consider donating to Every Library. They do amazing work.

Also, thank a librarian for being awesome.
