It just arrived in our office! Wooohoooooo! We’re absolutely thrilled with this new coloring book. Embark on a desert adventure with illustrator Geninne D Zlatkis. Crafted as a love letter to the desert, Zlatkis’s collection of charming illustrations feature some of her favorite crafty creatures and natural treasures — all found in her desert home. Her passion for this magnificent and wild place will inspire you to explore your own color palette and bring the illustrations to vivid life.
Geninne invites you to share the journey:
A burst of rain can ignite a blaze of small vibrant blooms that last for only a few hours. The shifting sunlight can transform a seemingly simple landscape to stunning shades of orange and red in a heartbeat. The pure blue sky goes on as far as the eye can see in every direction, making all worries seem small. So many things shift and change and bring me joy.
And then there are all the beings that call the desert home — they steal my heart. I love seeing the wee creatures that scurry from one shady spot to another, the silly bunnies that slyly maneuver danger, the birds that make elaborate homes in impossible places, and the frolicking coyotes that play and prowl over the landscape.
I love the desert. It is my home. It is a source of endless inspiration. I can’t imagine any place on earth that could speak to my heart in the same way.
By bringing these illustrations to vivid life with your own color palette, you too will experience the beauty of the desert. I hope you fall in love, as I have, with this expansive and ever-changing place of beauty.
