About the author:
“Icons of Fairytales Adult Coloring Book” is hand-illustrated by Michelle Buvala. Some people are born with the great gift to create with their hands. Michelle is one of those people. Whether she’s helping children create fun, wearable art or growing fresh vegetables in her garden, her friends are amazed by her creativity and ability to create something good from the simplest components. In her life she has worked in many places, from the excitement of the toy store to the challenges of the classroom. She’s an avid desert gardener and a founder of the local community garden. Michelle holds a degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University.
Sean Buvala researched and created the captions for these illustrations. As well, he crafted the computer-generated patterns in the book directly from the illustrations drawn by Michelle. Sean is a
professional storyteller and has been engaged with storytelling and communication since 1986. He started his work by accidentally using some active storytelling to convert a classroom of slightly (but comically) homicidal 8th-grade teenagers from angry kids to storytelling practitioners themselves. From then on, both the kids and Sean were sold on the influence of a great story. He is an author, teacher, and performer but thinks the greatest part of his life is being married to Michelle Buvala.
The Icons of Fairytales Adult Coloring Book
K. Sean Buvala
Our Unique Adult Coloring Book!
"Icons of Fairytales Coloring Book" contains hand-drawn icon illustrations (more than two dozen) as well as fun patterns based on those illustrations. The icon pictures, such as the bear, duck, frog, sword and all the rest are influenced by folktales, fairytales and fables from all over the world. Created with pen and ink, you'll find a few full-size pictures within this fun adult coloring book.
Need some stress relieving? Patterns, (ranging from very easy to very complex) you see in this book were computer-created by directly from the icon illustrations. Each of the patterns comes from some piece of the icon. For many of these, it is easy to figure out which part of the icon was used. For others, you'll have to really search and see if you can identify which part of the icon is used in the pattern.
The full-page patterns bend and magnify pieces of the icons, so the naturalness of the ink on paper may create some rough lines or breaks in the pattern. This is intentional and is part of what makes this coloring book unique. We hope you like this book as much as we enjoyed making it for you.
The quotes on each page are snippets from various world-tales or other great stories.
