Earlier this year, Camille from the Curlypops Shop made a callout for line artwork that could be used for a colouring book.
Cam is artist / illustrator, crafter, textile designer, blogger and a double lung transplant recipient.

Time to time I have donated something I have made to a charity.
I was happy to donate a line drawing.

Camille came up with the idea of a colouring Book for Adults with 100% of the profits going to Heart and Lung Transplant Trust (Victoria) Inc


I donated an a4 page of Russian Doll Babushkas', yes, my own original artwork!
It's wonderful to be able to contribute to such a worthy cause.
The artwork was created in Adobe Illustrator.

Many other wonderful artists have contributed creative artwork in their own unique style, for the book.
The final result is amazing.
also.....Thanks to Cam for all of her hard work.

Coloring books are a way for adults who don't normally draw or paint to be creative

"Some of Australia's biggest companies are buying colouring books for adults in bulk to help staff handle the stress of the modern workplace.
Amid claims that Australia is facing a mental health epidemic, Melbourne neuropsychologist Stan Rodski says the simple act of colouring can change brain behaviour and help workers achieve calm and balance".

The latest news is that profit from sales has just hit $5,000! Yay!
"This money will go directly to the Second Chance Accommodation Project which subsidises the cost of post transplant accommodation for country Victorian and interstate heart and lung transplant recipients at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne"


You only have to head over to instagram to see a great range of coloured pages.
