One thing that truly bums me out about getting older is that people look at you strangely if you partake in some innocent coloring. Anyone who knows me knows I love to color (this has probably been my main motivation for a short-lived babysitting career), going wild on a coloring book and painting walls are just about the most relaxing activities I can think of. My dream is to one day live in a world that resembles the café scene in the Sex and the City movie (the one where we learn that Big "doesn't stay in the lines") except without a child at the table. Just ladies lunching and coloring.
Getting to this utopian crayon-filled world has just gotten easier with thefrancofly's launch of Color Me Seasonal, a monthly series of printable drawings featuring seasonal fruits and veg that are begging to be colored in.
Jessie, aka thefrancofly, often features seasonal produce and favorite foods on her blog and in her work as an illustrator and food stylist. Color Me Seasonal combines a creative approach to inspiring better eating habits with her signature illustration style.
The concept may be aimed at kids, but I will have no qualms coloring in summer squash, tomatoes, and cherries for a good cause. No matter what, Jessie promises, "You will be left with a pretty picture, a happy stomach and a healthier ecosystem."
