The Copic Coloring Guide

For those of you who have been patiently waiting, I am pleased to announce that my new book, The Copic Coloring Guide is now available for purchase!! (Click here to order a copy).

It was so much fun working with my uber-talented and loyal friend, Colleen Schaan. This book is great for those of you just learning Copic markers and need something to clearly step you through the coloring process. The Copic Coloring Guide is jam-packed with gorgeous papercrafting projects made by a talented team of designers...too many to name them all :), so you'll just have to go buy the book and see who contributed!

I want to give a special thanks to both Colleen and our editor, Tanya, for making this book happen. It has really come together beautifully!

I know that everyone who contributed to the book hopes that you will be inspired and gain confidence in your coloring ability through our efforts. It makes me all happy inside when I know that fulfilling my dreams helps others find and nurture their own talents.

May you all have a wonderfully-inspired week!

I am not knew to Copics, but still have much to learn. Yes, I am Copic certified but that does not mean I know it all...you, my dear, are the Queen of the Copics to me!! So now a question....is this book for beginners or for colorists of all levels? TIA

Beginning would be what I rate it, but it is a great resource for those who want all the basics in one, easy place where they can look it up.

I just took the Intermediate class with Colleen this month and had a blast and learned so much! Still going back thru the manual to re-read and make sure I'm getting all the info. There is still so much to learn!

I have The Copic Coloring Guide, I love it along with Shadows & Shading, thank you. I ordered the online version, couldn't wait for the mail, it is printed & is now a book bound with the help of my Cinch.

I got my first Copics 3 yrs ago, fell in love & have been using only my Copics since. A friend pointed me to your blog where I have learned so much, thank you again.

Love to read you are fulfilling your dream.

Layne said...

Kudos!!

I bought your "Shadows and Shading"
book the other day & it's fantastic... this one looks sure to follow the same way!!!

Just wish it didn't cost more than the book it's self to ship to Canada - $21.95 shipping for a $14.95 book is just a tad too expensive... :(

Do you know if it will be released through our local stores like your other book? Pretty please, really want to get it...

Kudos again,
Layne

I hope the guide is a complete success...I will be sure to link it on my blog this evening. :)

Congratulations on the new book. I'm pretty new to copics and although I can boast that I have most of them, I know I haven't even scratched the surface on using them. Looking forward to getting a copy.
