Learn More About Us
If you feel like knowing a little more about us, and our book(s), keep reading and I’ll tell (a quick version of) our story.
We are Geoff and Katie, a married Canadian couple from Calgary and Vancouver. Since 2006, we’ve been travelling the world, first as expatriates, then on vacation while we worked “normal” jobs in Canada, and now as permanent nomads…we’ve been full-time world travellers since November 2013!
Here’s a picture of us with a page from our current book.
If you look closely, you’ll notice the page from the book is the same scene as where we’re standing in real life! That is the entire concept of our books…we create colourable pages from real-life travel scenes!
Introducing Our Travel-Themed Colouring Book
Our first book is a collection of colourable illustrations from some of our favourite travel memories over the last 10 years. Let me show you some examples!
This first photo is of Lisbon, Portugal. Lisbon was our first stop after quitting our jobs in Canada to embark on a life of permanent travel, and is still one of our favourite cities.
Now, here is Lisbon as a “colourable”
Pretty, cool, eh?
Here’s another example…this one from Taiwan, where Geoff and I met in 2006. I took a Buddhist cooking course at the Fo Guang Shan Monastery near the city of Kaohsiung, where we lived. It was an overnight course, and we woke up early on Sunday morning to enjoy these Buddha statues. It was an amazing experience!
Our first book, published in December 2015, contains 47 colourables from 29 countries, and all of the illustrations are single-sided only.
Also, it’s worth noting the illustrations are hand-traced…none of this automatic digital creation stuff for us. In Book #1, the illustration that took the longest as a picture of Riga, Latvia…15 hours to create!!!
Book #2: Colouring Mexico
We’re currently working on book #2: Colouring Mexico! I’m actually in Mexico right now, writing this post from a cute café.
We’ll be sure to send you updates about the book as it develops, but we’re targeting a publishing date sometime in April 2016 (or early May, at the latest).
Any questions? You can always contact us at [email protected], and can follow along with our lives, travels, and coloring book creations on our blog!
