Coloring With My Computer
Posted by Debbie Mumford
Let’s face it, I’m still a child at heart! One of my favorite childhood activities (aside from reading!) was coloring. Inside the lines, outside the lines, without lines: who needs limits? Pretty colors, the tactile feel of sweeping a crayon across paper, the joy of creation! I was never an artist, but I loved my colorful playtime.
I’m no different as an adult, but my tools have changed. I rarely grab paper and crayons these days, but I do enjoy the sheer playfulness of creating cover art :D Pretty pictures, interesting fonts, layout and design. All combine to give my muse a break from words while encouraging her creativity.
Here are some recent efforts. Not sure if they’re finished yet, but I do intend to refresh several of my books in the new year :D
