Cover Art and Title Page
Part One: Viridian Jungle Fantasy Series
Here’s a magical new storyline I’ve created about a fantasy culture of dark skinned kingdoms in a wondrous jungle. Inspired in part by african culture, part renaissance classical fairytale, and part my own fun and wild imaginings, this will begin a small series of circle portraits featuring beautiful black men, women and children depicted as the lead in fantasy tales: princesses and princes. Color these however you like, and make up your own stories about these characters too! Or take my stories as inspiration for your own interpretation! The decision is yours!
Part Two: Gearkeeper Series
Part two consists of characters from the steampunk realm adjacent to the Viridian Jungle called the Ruby Desert. They are tinkerers, gearkeepers, and punky people of all sorts. Many come from the technically advanced capital of Scarlet City, which is steeped in culture and tradition. Some distance from the Viridian Jungle, nonetheless there is quite some crossover – and you’ll see the Scarlet City residents wandering into the rich and mystical Jungle and the Jungle residents finding their way to Scarlet City to trade their luxurious items.

Part Five: Modern Day Series
Sometimes a dose of sunny reality is all you need. Here I present a selection of modern day faces for your colouring fun. I chose to depict scenes of positivity, love and happiness to bring you a bit of sunshine, even on a cloudy day. Practice modern style dress and hairstyles and enjoy both the young and old portraits in this section.
