The book is available! Color Me With Hugs!

Cover Color Me With Hugs by Doodleslice

Color Me With Hugs is my first book!

It took me two years to put together this whimsical collection of 44 poems paired with 44 drawings.

The words and images are playful, and evocative of childhood, but this coloring + poetry book is intended to delight adults and children alike.

The book is brimming with animals, people, picnics, unicorns, turtles, love, umbrellas, giraffes, elephants, flying saucers, rabbits, and astronauts — in fact some of the rabbits are astronauts!

It is a book of light and lyrical poems. Some evoke a sense of wonder, some tell a story, others simply indulge in the pleasures of magical nonsense.

It is my hope that grown ups and kids can both find something to cherish in these pages filled with joy and love.

The book is available now on Amazon and select locations around Atlanta.

The Origami Student by Doodleslice 2014-03-06 origami student prepares his workspace blue windex and soft cloth clear of lint, clear of mind he kneels to begin as he was taught immaculate square thin and crisp white side up like in the book first fold reveals color blue paper laced with fierce dragons supple fingers patient hands the patient mind makes the cleanest fold he tells himself again just like they said in the video corner to corner fold and unfold the printed dragons smile and stretch corner to corner and again and back against themselves thin paper thick with folds grows tiny and unmanageable it tears and is discarded dutiful student clears his workspace breathes selects a new pristine sheet and kneels to begin again folding and unfolding mindful of his lessons he massages the backs of blue dragons arranging the dangerous angles finally revealing the noble symmetries of the simple crane far away the origami master with wrinkled eyes and wrinkled fingers snatches a crumpled wrapper from the street she whispers secrets kept in the creases of her smile and in her hand the stained paper nods knowingly grateful to find that it has wings and breath and fire behold a fierce paper dragon lacing a path in the immaculate blue sky #art #photography #origami #paper #paperfolding #poem #poetry #student #learning #mastery #mystery
