I discovered Millie while researching for the Adult Coloring Book blog post from the other day. This UK based illustrator's work is highly inspired by nature. Her beautifully realistic, yet whimsical work has a timeless feel. On how she developed her style: "Growing up on a small holding in the middle of nowhere I developed a mild obsession with all things flora and fauna, which along with intricate pattern and detail remains an ongoing theme in my work, whether it be for a commission or simply to indulge my own flight of fancy."

For those who aren't artistically inclined (or even if you are) Adult coloring books are a great way to unwind. For something so simple, they are a great stress reliever. Stores are selling them, artists are offering them on their Etsy pages for downloads, they are everywhere and super popular right now. Here are a few cool options I've found. I don't even want to color in them, just have them in my collection.
Although this fabulous book isn't available until November 10th, you can pre-order now. This is definitely on my list, more of a collectors item. In the meantime, check out Andrea's blog Fly, where you can get downloads of coloring pages.
This big book of coloring pages features 9 hallmark artists. Hallmark is so serious about your coloring that they provide an extra piece of paper to put behind pages so ink won't bleed through. You can also download sample coloring pages.
