Give out Custom-made Coloring Books ~ Starring Your Child ~ at the Party! Great idea for Birthdays, Communions, Holidays, and More

I made this Custom Made COLORING BOOK for a Client who planned on giving them out in the Party Bags. But the children, inspired by watching me draw Party CARICATURES, ended up Coloring them during the Party. I know it is fun. My personalized COLORING BOOKS have a sort of charisma. Both this Child Style of Coloring Books which is best colored with Crayons ~ and my much more Detailed Adult Style of Coloring Books which are best colored with Colored Pencils or Markers.

(Of course, I covered up the Child's personal information before posting it here online. In this case, my Client had told me these things about her son. And she supplied me with reference pictures of the Birthday Boy, his brother, his mother, and his dog.)

Coloring Books made just for you

Posted 14 days ago

Personalized COLORING BOOKS made just for you. Pages drawn up just for you. Black linework that is just right for you to Color. Already Colored Covers.

Best to order multiples of 4 for the number of pages: 4 or 8 or 12 or 16 or 20, etc.

They are good to put around on the tables at a Big Party. They are good to put into the Goody Bags that are given out at the end of the Party. They are good to advertise Children's Services. and most of all, They are good to Color.

The Law

Posted Oct 2013

Here's a clear example of how a Professional Artist might seem involved in agendas that she's not personally involved with. Here's a small preview of an intense Commission to draw a Coloring Book for a client who did seem to have a Political Agenda. I guess.

I don't have time to decide on the veracity of his agenda any more than I have the ability to ascertain whether a Guest of Honor is worthy of honor at my Party Gigs ~ Where I try to draw the Guest of Honor (and all the other guests) in a Positive Light. Because that's what I'm paid for.

I just showed a few of the pages here ~ because my client wants to sell the Coloring Books. And I smashed the word "Copyrighted" over each picture here because my Client plans on selling them. There are lots of other places drawn ~ like Tennessee, Washington DC, South Dakota, Las Vegas and more......I guess you'd have to buy the Coloring Book from Darrell Banks if you want to see them.

I'm a Professional Artist. I draw what my clients want drawn.

Note: I did not design the Character. I did not write the Story. I just followed my Client's instructions. I did have to make his wildly detailed ideas all come together into a 'readable' picture.

My own idea about Coloring Books is that they should have very little on each page ~ so people could add their own Artwork with Crayons. I would not have chosen so much details ~ but that does seem to be what most clients do. They get excited and dream up more and more stuff for me to include in the pictures. As though more is better. Still, this Adult Coloring Book worked great ~ I couldn't wait to get to Coloring it. Colored Pencils worked best. Or Coloring on the IPad.

The Clown's Coloring Book

Posted Mar 2010

Yeow - A woman called me about a Coloring Book this week - just a regular party-prop based on the Party-Girl. I wanted to send her to see a Coloring Book that I created as a business 'advertisement' recently - but I couldn't find the post. Is it possible that I hadn't posted it?

Well, here's a sample of it now - some of the pages. It's a lot of work to make a Coloring Book, but it's so worth it. Since my childhood was Coloroing Book, it was so much a part of me, I'm excited to think of the kids who would be carelessly taking for-granted the ones that I create for them. So much a part of their lives, and they probably won't even realize it.
