About the author:
I am a Normal Challenged Artist
with (MCD) Multiple Creativity Disorder
who loves a really good cocktail at the
end of the day and a lot of color in my life.
My world is all about creativity. Whether
it be art, cocktails or living, I look for ways
to color my life happy. It's all about being
positive, taking the challenges life hands me
and turning them into some inspiration for my
art, my craft cocktails and my approach to life.
It's a philosophy of applying a little
Zen to my life with a handful of pens,
a rainbow of colored pencils, a brush full of
color and a loaded cocktail shaker to create
some serenity in a world full of confusion.
I am a (semi-retired) professional artist and graphic designer of 40+ years who doodles, dreams and drinks in
the desert city of Tucson with
my new cocktail wing man and
kitty, Bailey. Yes, I admit it, he
was named after a very well
known Irish cream liqueur.

All of the coloring pages within this book are completely hand drawn. Done in ink, on paper and, in nearly all cases, directly inked with no preliminary sketching done. I did not use any digital drawing processes at all when creating these images except for the clean up stage where I corrected noogies (my word for mistakes or a slip of the pen.) You can even see progress videos as I drew many of the designs on my Facebook page at Facebook.com/ColoringLifeHappy.
What does this mean? It means that these are not perfect, and they're not meant to be. Nothing hand-drawn is perfect and it shouldn't be. The whole point of not using digital drawing tools is to leave in the charm of the artist's imperfections and, at the same time, including a little piece of the artist's soul.
I can, and do, create art completely digitally, I did for years professionally. Which is why I wanted to get the pen and the paper back in my hands again and sit down and draw the way I was taught to draw. For me, personally, it is tremendously satisfying to have that physical contact with my art tools again. These drawings have given me many hours of artistic pleasure after having been separated from my art by bits and bytes for many years. I hope they bring equal measure of joy to you.
I love drawing eyes and faces but not JUST eyes and faces. Heck, I just like to draw, but it's always more fun if I can let my imagination run loose and that is what I did with these drawings. I used what I call a direct inking process, no preconceived idea or design. Starting with the eyes and part of a face, I then let the drawing tell me what it wanted to be and, with pen in hand, happily followed along. If you are surprised by these designs, imagine my surprise at what ended up on my sketch pad at the end of an illustration session. It was great fun to see my menagerie grow as I created the book and I hope you have as much fun coloring the images as I did creating them.
Enjoy and - always - Color Life Happy!
