I am very happy to have finally completed this project. This is my 5th coloring book, and although I didn't plan on creating any more coloring books, this project was too tempting not to accept. The coloring book has 17 illustrations of flora and fauna of the Milld Pond. The city of Seaside is transforming the old mill pond into a Mill Pond Natural History Park with the hope of upgrading trails and access. They have asked me to create a coloring book that depicts plants and animals that can be seen around the milld pond. The area is famous for bird watching and it has some beautiful sitka trees. I chose illustrations of plants, birds and pollinators that can be seen at that site. As always creating a coloring book takes hours of research, sketching, refining compositions and finally inking the illustrations with a steady hand.
