“Fantastic Cities”

This video features artist Steve McDonald in his studio, talking about the new coloring book for grown-ups that he illustrated, Fantastic Cities: A Coloring Book of Amazing Places Real and ImaginedMcDonald says, “The idea that I’m–even in a small way–introducing an artistic outlet into anyone’s life I think is a great thing.”

You know I’m a sucker for artist studios, and this video is really well done. But beyond what I like, this is perfect for the adult coloring book craze happening now. Especially when you think about the fact that they are not like typical books. They cannot be checked-out, shared or re-read.
