    @KittyRaces@KittyRaces @Jaded@Jaded, other colourers...

    Bodleian Library at Oxford put up a PDF of some of their collection as printable colouring pages. Pretty neat.

    http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0011/197453/2016-Colouring-Book.pdf

    [eta] It looks like a lot of libraries are getting in on this for Colour Our Collections Week, which is February 1-5. Quite a few of them can be found here:

    I'll repost some stuff some MTC members had posted in MTG's coloring thread a few weeks ago:

    @Jaded@Jaded colored these:

    @KittyRaces@KittyRaces colored this:

    Jaded and KittyRaces both bought a nice discount I found on an OttLite desk lamp to see colors more accurately.

    @Eetha@Eetha shared the websites for her indie coloring book work-in-progress, with free printable sample pages available:
    http://coloringbug.com
    http://facebook.com/coloringbug

    (And I suggested that if you don't have a printer at home, you can put the pages you like on a USB drive and take it to a library, office supply store, or copy center. :) Should be able to get them printed there ranging from around 5 to 25 cents per page, depending on arbitrary pricing.)

    @essjay@essjay drew this zentangle:

    @EEEmmons@EEEmmons - Very nice work! That is some unusually-shaped paper you're using. :)

    Oh! I thought the cardboard had slots in it to hold the paper, but I am probably wrong.

    "The National Archives of the United States just released a coloring book full of strange patents. It’s all available now as a free PDF, and it’s 17 glorious pages of sheer inventive weirdness. The patents range for chicken goggles to a hat that automatically salutes to the landing craft used in D-Day. It’s an utter delight."

    I actually colored her as a reference for one of the characters in the book I'm writing! (Minus the wings.) Her name is Mischa (for now.)

    I picked out a picture from all of my books of each of my main characters, it helps me make them a little more real. I sound like an insane person and I'm going to stop typing now.

    Edit: Her name is not Mischa anymore.

    This is why I'm poor. I'm coloring instead of working.

    This one's name isn't decided yet. Though for now she's called Cyrene.

    And I hate her.

    EDIT: I tried to make it smaller but it didn't work. The weridly colored white blob in the tree is whiteout.
