If Animals Were People

Check out this post that originally appeared on Ionia Martin’s Readful Things Blog

Here is the latest offering in our color book series. I had a lot of fun with this one. I’m trying a new approach here as well. Adult color books tend to have a lot of very small spaces, and not everyone loves that. So this is the first book in the “Wide Open Spaces” series. For those who want to have the fun of an adult coloring book, but don’t want to deal with all the tiny little details.

I proudly present: “If Animals Were People”

Also check out our other color books available on amazon.com and over at J and I Publishing

Ever wonder what the world would be like if animals were in control? If animals were people, what would they do for work? What would they do for fun? Follow these zany animals on their various adventures to work and beyond and color them in as you choose. This book is intended for an adult coloring audience, but was intentionally designed with wide open spaces to color for those who do not wish to color extremely small and complicated designs. Grab your favorite coloring tools and have a blast with these silly critters!

Bacon. Oink. Oink.

Those of you who keep up with J and I Publishing know that we have a very talented C.P.O. (Chief Pig Officer) named Bacon. He has been a good friend for a long time and we trust him with the big decisions for our publishing company.

If you keep up with this blog, you will notice that coming soon will be the life story of this fine swine, on a separate page entitled “The Big Life of a Small Pig,” written by the pig himself.

Until then, Bacon and I decided we would keep you updated on what he has been up to in the mean time. So this is his first hog post…er…blog post. Bacon and us at J and I went on a recent research mission for my WIP (Work including Piggy) to seek out some landscapes to draw. So here are some “pigtures” from Bacon’s personal collection. He’s kind of a camera hog…

Color me Green – St Patrick’s Day, March 17th

St_Patrick

So the world renowned St Patrick’s day ‘holiday’ is fast approaching, but what do we really know about St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. St Patrick’s day is celebrated on March the 17th and is not confined purely to Ireland. It has grown into a highly recognisable celebration that takes place, in different forms, worldwide. In fact the celebrations take place even farther afield than this, having occurred on the international space station and well, that is out of this world.

If we look at Wikipedia we find that he hails from Roman Britain in the 5th Century and was a Christian missionary and bishop. Apparently kidnapped by Irish raiders and gainfully employed as a slave in Gaelic Ireland, shepherding, he found God. Legend has it that he used the three leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost to the Irish pagans. Evangelical to the end, he converted many pagan Irish to Christianity.

Numerous legends have grown up about him over the years rocketing him to the top of the charts as the foremost Irish saint, that tradition maintains died on March 17th.

So how is St Patrick’s day celebrated? What are the main traditions that have arisen around this holiday?

Green! It is all about the green. The color green is very widely worn, along with shamrocks. Known as the ‘wearing of the green’, clothing, ribbons and hats in this hue are prevalent. Farther back the wearing of the St Patrick’s cross was common. In addition the holiday mainly seems to revolve around the consumption of copious amounts of alcohol, primarily that most Irish of drinks, Guinness, and eating large amounts of food. Tall fuzzy green hats also seem to be prominent. A very vibrant and colorful celebration, it often results in an explosion of green, including the coloring green of such things as entire rivers.

For those that prefer to celebrate this festival in a more decorous fashion, what could be better than a St Patrick’s day themed coloring book. So here it . The shameless plug for the new J and I Publishing Irish Coloring Adventure now available on Amazon.
