Review - Colour Me In by Jaz Higgins
Colour Me In is the debut coloring book from Australian artist Jaz Higgins. It features 24 cute hand drawn illustrations of her signature feminine girl figures in a variety of scenes, from oceans and gardens to parties. The charming artwork is easy to color and while suitable for both adults and kids alike, it has a feel that’s more suited to younger audiences. The girl figure is a bit repetitive but offers the chance to practice the same elements.
Our colorists explore some of the pages below.
Colorist, Kimberly Egberts, used Bruynzeel Expression colored pencils and Ecoline Brush Pens for base for the above left pages. She said “I used a brush marker base on the dress girl page, and went over it with colored pencils, applying the same principles for both pages from that point onwards. I went from dark to light, blending the lighter color with the darker, and moving towards the lighter color accordingly. As the pencils leave many traces, I made sure I followed the outlines and forms of the different elements as best as I could.” Ilona Szajnicka used this page (above right) to experiment with her alcohol markers.

About the Artist: Jaz Higgins
Jaz Higgins is a an artist from Brisbane, Australia with a passion for all things colourful! This is my first colouring book called “Colour Me In” (I’ve since released my 2nd one called “Magical Mermaids”). They are all hand drawn by me and each page is one-sided and perforated, so you can tear the pages out, paint them, frame them, whatever you like!
