Over the last few weeks I've been updating my Etsy shop with new artwork, including some collages I created in 2014. For the last two years I've been hoarding them but now excited to let them out into the world. The ones pictured here are a few of what's available on the shop (some of which have already sold). I will be posting more there over the coming days. Hopefully you see one that speaks to you!
Feeling like you want to test out your coloring before purchasing or diving into your fresh copy of I Love My Hair? Or want to try a different coloring technique than what you used in your already broken in copy of the book? Well I have a little treat for you. You can download two pages from the book here?
In honor of National Coloring Book Day happening this Sunday (August 2nd) and in preparation for the I Love My Hair coloring book (out in November!), I'm offering a free coloring illustration for you to download. You can download this patterned heart here.
While you're relaxing and coloring this weekend, take a listen at Lianne La Havas' new album Blood, released today. I'm a huge fan and so excited for this new release. I can't wait to check her out during her U.S. tour. (Isn't this album cover beautiful?!)

Last week I added a new print to the Etsy shop. She is called "A Manifesting Queen" which is a digital reproduction of an original collage drawing. The image is a visual reminder that we have the power to manifest our dreams.
This is an archival quality print on 100% pure cotton Reich Savoy paper, which is acid free, recyclable and biodegradable.
Wow, here we are at Day 21 already!! This has been such an amazing experience. I really didn't know what to expect, but with everyday I grew more and more excited to see what you all had to share. With that I'd like to end this challenge with doodles expressing my gratitude — including how grateful I am for your participation. Thank you for sharing with me, and sharing this challenge with your friends. The Doodle Challenge grew super fast because of your enthusiasm. We managed to create a little over 1,000 doodles in our doodle stream on Instagram. And that doesn't include all the amazing doodles that were shared secretly.
This project has inspired me to continue exploring our doodling together in a different way. I am working on something that I can't wait to share with you. So please stay tuned!
Also, I would like to know what you would like to do with your doodles now that you have so many little illustratons and preliminary designs to work with. Email me, comment below or post a comment on IG.
In the meantime let's get to our final doodle together. Thanks again and I really hope you'll keep doodling on your own — or start your own doodle challenge.
Today's prompt comes from a special group of young people in Louisiana. They are part of an art club (they call themselves the Art Geeks) and their teacher, Ms. Kee, introduced them to the doodle challenge as a daily warm-up. I was so impressed with their participation that I asked them to give us a fun idea for doodles. So here it is: create a creature by combining 3 animals and an insect.
In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day let's doodle elements related to Dr. King and the Civil Rights movement. Dates, facts, people, places, etc. that speak to his legacy and how it impacted us all.
Let's also be inspired by his determination, his vision and dream and doodle things we dream for ourselves, our families, community, and the world. It can be as simple as cooking a healthy meal or as big as traveling the world to teach children how to read.
