My name is Kelly O'Gorman and I'm an Artist /Illustrator from Hertfordshire in England UK.

You can check out my website and work here: www.kogcreative.com

For the past few years my art has taken me on an unexpected and wonderful journey into the world of colouring book art. 

I have self published two books already - 'The A-Z of Creative Colouring' and 'The A-Z of Flora and Fauna'. 

My first book, ' The A-Z of Creative Colouring' came into being through a piece of personalised artwork I made for a close member of the family, 

when others saw the artwork they wanted one too, so I created the book so people could colour and make their own.

You can view a video for the first book here:

The book was a great success and I've really enjoyed seeing how others have uniquely brought my artwork to life, hearing their stories of how my books have inspired their creativity and sometimes how they have helped them through difficult times, this has inspired me to keep drawing and creating books.

Here's some wonderful examples of my work coloured by others, thank you for sharing!
Here's some wonderful examples of my work coloured by others, thank you for sharing!

The concept of my books are that the pages do not have to be be coloured and left within the book, I have made them so that you can create beautiful personalised artwork for yourself and then keep or gift your work to others.

My first two books are alphabet based, but for a while, I have been asked whether I would create a numbers based book, so for the past half year I have been working to bring this project to life. 

In the past I've been able to print books in smaller and more affordable quantities, but circumstances have changed and in order to get this new book to print I'm going to have order a bigger quantity and pay for the costs upfront. - hence launching a Kickstarter campaign.

My new book will be called, 'The 0-10 of Creative Numbers' and will contain 5 sets of Numbers, therefore 55 unique hand drawn illustrations in all,

there will be:

  • A 0-10 set of numbers to go with my first book 'The A-Z of Creative Colouring'
  • A 0-10 set of numbers to go with my second book 'The A-Z of Flora and Fauna'
  • A 0-10 set of dinosaur numbers
  • A 0-10 set of animals numbers
  • A 0-10 a set of fairy numbers

As with my previous books, the book will be printed on 170gsm paper and the pages will measure 20cm x 22.5cm. 

The pages of the book are perforated along the left hand side of the page, once the pages are removed from the book they measure 20cm x 20cm. Removable pages make easier for colouring and also helpful for left handed colourists, the size of page also makes it easier to source ready made frames should you wish to frame your final artwork.

The paper has also been tried and tested with a wide variety of colouring mediums, from pencils to alcohol markers and even watercolour pencils, the paper stand up well.

Here's some examples of artwork from the book

Risks and challenges

This will be the first time that I'm using a new printer and although I have heard great things about them and seen their work, I have never dealt with them personally myself.

I still have some drawings to finish and I also have the layout of the final book to complete, I'm hoping that all will go to plan and there will not be any hiccups along the way, but you never know what life is going to throw your way, hopefully it will all run smoothly!

I originally hoped that I would get the books out in July - but have just given myself a little extra time should I need it.
