Having designed a cover for a 1920s colouring book, as part of a creative bootcamp, earlier this year, I decided that I'd like to create the contents too.
Since May, I've been designing colouring pages for a graphic story colouring book. In it we follow the life and loves of socialite: Clarissa and Podge (her toy poodle), as well as touching on social occurrences of the time. The pages are influenced by styles and themes from the 1920s, but with a modern twist.
Above is a sample of one of the sketches, which go into designing a colouring page. Below the initial cover from the bootcamp, which inspired this project.
