It goes without saying that things have been extremely ‘manic’ here at Manic Minotaur Towers.
So, this is what I’ve been up to since my last blog post and some things I was up to before and some news of things to come…
The Manic Minotaur AWESOME Colouring Book
Firstly I must announce the imminent arrival of the Manic Minotaur AWESOME Colouring Book!
Having been asked on various occasions if I was going to release a book, I have compiled 44 of my drawings stripped of colour.
Once listed you will be able to purchase a copy from the Manic Minotaur Etsy Shop.
**UPDATE** This is now listed!! Manic Minotaur AWESOME Colouring Book
Amelia’s Colourful Colouring Companion: Adult Coloring Book
Staying on the theme of colouring books, I submitted a drawing for Amelia’s Colourful Colouring Companion: Adult Coloring Book. A colouring book compiled by the creator of Amelia’s Magazine, Amelia Gregory, featuring lots of great work by great illustrators.
Each illustrator had to create a double page spread with the left side already coloured in and the right black and white for all the lovely people to saturate in all the colours of the rainbow.
Amelia has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for the publishing costs. Anyone can pledge cash for postcards and books. It was even featured as the main campaign on the Kickstarter website.
I’ve now got my own badge making machine and have been designing and making lots of badges and lots of badge packs. Great fun! You can see all the Manic Minotaur badges here in the Badges Section of my Etsy shop.
Here’s some sticker designs I did.
I have set up stall at lots of craft fairs over the year including –
Bazaar Brighton, Fairy Tale Fair in Brighton, Wild Strawberry in Brighton, and the Crafty Fox Market in Brixton and Peckham. I thoroughly enjoy taking part in these events and still have quite a few in the run-up to Christmas.
