And if you like ’em, maybe sign up for monthly books and stickers. Or not. I’ll keep giving printable coloring pages to you for free. Or maybe an alligator will fall out of the sky and land on my drawing hand. Well. I don’t know what we’d do then. Hmm. Maybe you should sign up so I can afford an alligator umbrella. Yeah. I think that would be best. I’m glad we sorted this all out.
Color one of these ZomBeans or that very fashionable Saint Bernard and post it in the comments of the Roundup post in Camp Colorama on Facebook. If we get 10 submissions, one of you lucky ducks will win a $10 gift card for Studio Moonfall.
The Color of Kenosha coloring book is in the news!
Yesterday, I got to do in interview with Fox 6 Milwaukee talking about how the Color of Kenosha went from a project giving something fun to people stuck in lockdown to a fundraiser helping businesses that suffered damages during the riots in Kenosha.
If you choose Studio Moonfall, the $5 will go to the Downtown & Uptown Business Recovery Fundraiser through DKI.
The Color of Kenosha is fun, optimistic view of what our city can be (if we were all cartoons). The next Color of Kenosha book, planned to come out in time for the holidays, is now set up for anyone to sign up a business they would like to see involved.
The business will receive a bunch of copies of the books for themselves that they’ll be able to sell. And of course, you’ll get a handful of books for yourself.
Basically, here’s how it works:
You choose your favorite business to support
Sign them up to be in the book
I’ll let them know and find out what they’d love to see for their illustration
Everybody gets books!
The business will be able to sell their copies to even more of their customers
Also, once the business is signed up, they’ll receive $5 for anyone that pre-orders the book and chooses them from the options.
This is pretty much the same as the first Color of Kenosha but now with the option for individual people to support their favorite businesses during this rough time instead of having the businesses doing it themselves.
If you want to support the businesses involved and see my weird artistic interpretations of all of them as coloring pages, you can preorder a copy at http://www.colorofkenosha.com. $5 of your purchase will go directly to whichever local business you choose when you order.
Along with Studio Moonfall and a handful of various attractions in Kenosha, we’ve got all these small businesses involved in the book:
Apis Hotel & Restaurant Author D. Lieber Blue House Books Boathouse Pub & Eatery Captain Mike’s Copy Center Dooley & Associates EXP Realty Gateway Service Center Harbor Park Crossfit Heal Therapies Jake’s Kenosha Area Weather Page La Fogata & Waterfront Warehouse Lou Perrine’s Gas & Grocery Marina Garden Mike Bjorn’s Clothing Paddy O’s Pub Public Brewing Co. Sazzy B’s & The Buzz TG’s Restaurant & Pub The Garage Union Park Tavern U.S. Taekwondo Academy Visit Kenosha
The books will be coming in mid to late August so get your preorder in by Sunday to make sure you get in on the first printing. To see what’s coming and to print some of the individual pages, aaaand put in your order, head to http://www.colorofkenosha.com
Over on Facebook, I’ve started up Camp Colorama, a group where I’ll be sharing daily coloring pages and you can post your own colored up masterpieces of my illustrations. With the Coloring Book of Weird Ideas, The Walking Beans, and Creature of the Week, there should be plenty to feed your imagination.
Are you and everyone you know locked inside and bored out of your minds?
Let’s do something about it!
I need your help to come up with the next coloring book and at the same time, keep Studio Moonfall around long enough to make its stand against our future robot overlords. For a bonus, as the coloring book is made, we’re going to put the pages up here so that everyone coming down with a case of cabin fever can print them up and have some coloring fun to keep them busy.
Once we have 50 illustrations ready to go, I’ll put it together into a full coloring book!
