The 6x9 inch book, like all of Eve N Odd's doings is first-rate.

Work by C. Damme
Work by Demeree
Here are two samples from the book. On the left is Coralette Damme's compartmentalized, phrenological head drawing from her prints shown at Artful Living recently. On the right is a work by Demeree, resembling a Mayan deity.

 The Coloring Book Show included a table outside the gallery, complete with crayons (and chocolates!). Inside, there was an exhibit of drawings and prints by artists in the book

 Many of the artists were on hand. On the left is Sharon Steel (l.) and Jennifer Kosharek (r.). I couldn't help but notice that even the bag my book came in was hand made. The coloring books are affordable and available at Eve N Odd gallery, in the Crislip Arcade at 645 Central Avenue, St. Pete. You can read more about the book here: [Link].

Congratulations to all 64 artists, to Eve N Odd Gallery and Jennifer Kosharek for a great show and book.
