Ellen Million Graphics is back with two gorgeous new titles to add to our amazing fantasy catalog of coloring books for (so-called) grown-ups.
Mix and match your reward from our existing stock and newest books: the long-awaited Volume 3 of Gardens and Goddesses by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff, and the newest solo book from Ellen herself, Splendrix.
Both books (like our previous print runs) will be 20 single-sided pages, measuring 8.5 x 11 inches, printed on bright white #70 paper that is great for colored pencils, markers, and more. Our books are staple-bound and the covers are thick, printed in glossy color and of collector quality. Buy them to color, or just to collect!
Gardens and Goddesses Volume 3: 20 beautiful, magical illustrations, including mermaids, goddesses, fairies, owls, and a garden of graceful florals.
Splendrix: The fourth of Ellen's full-sized solo books, this is 20 pages of highly-detailed illustration. Includes unicorns, mermaids, fairies, romance, shapeshifters, sea monsters, dragons, story illustrations, and even science fiction.

The rewards start with a single PDF file. Every reward level includes this, and you can pick from any available title! After that, you add full-sized hardcopy coloring books. Pick your reward level based on how many of these gorgeous coloring books you'd like! You may pick from existing stock or the new titles being funded. US shipping is included, International shipping is based on expense (and yes, it's expensive - I'm sorry!). If you are interested in including a coloring book with limited stock, be sure to message me as soon as possible to claim your title.
Full-sized coloring books are 8.5 x 11 inches and have 20 single-sided pages. Click on the image below to read more about each book and see sample pages at the EMG site:
Half-sized coloring books may also be used as your coloring book claims! These books are 5.5 x 8.5 inches, and only 12 pages. Perfect for tucking into a bag to go. (The Coloring Alaska titles are perforated!) Click on the image for more information about each coloring book!
*Asterix is now an option for your coloring book selection! This teeny coloring book was a stretch goal for my very first Kickstarter, funding the original printing of Fantastrix. It was limited to Kickstarter purchases + 10 copies, signed and numbered, and sold as a $10 add-on (plus shipping). These ten copies are now available as one of your coloring book choices! It is 17 TINY images, collectible art card-sized at 3 x 4 inches with 2.5 x 3.5 inch artwork. It is NOT large pieces of artwork shrunk down to this size, it is Ellen's small work. It is staple-bound and made by hand because it is such a small run. Each one is signed and numbered, numbers are between 15 and 24.

Risks and challenges
This isn't my first rodeo!
I have been printing coloring books since 1997, and I am amply familiar with all that can (and inevitably will) go wrong with collecting artwork and getting it printed to my standards. With that experience under my hat, I have already done nearly all of the legwork for this project: the books are already in for proofs, and I have a great long-standing relationship with my printer. I have streamlined packaging and printing - envelopes are all in my studio already, and I've got vendors and back-up vendors lined up for any extras I have in mind.
I am a Mom first, and an individual (if amazing) person, so the greatest risk is the health of myself and my immediate family. I've given myself a month of wiggle-room, and I am extremely good at communicating should there be any delays. You can check out my four previous projects on Kickstarter, or read reviews of my previous coloring books to see how people rave about what I do.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
