Woohoo!!! They are here!!

Woohoo!!! They are here!! My second edition coloring books, the heART of childhood arrived! And wouldn't you know my strong husband was out of town on that day so I had to carry them all in by myself, lol! I certainly got my workout that day.




I am so pleased with how they turned out! Here is a quick video of me showing some of the interior pages.

I am offering FREE U.S. Shipping on the second edition but be sure to use the special coupon code
USShipFree at checkout. It doesn't matter if you get one book or 10 books. The shipping is still free (for those in the U.S.).  So sorry international friends! I am hoping to eventually find a way to get my book overseas. But for slightly more affordable international rates go to my Etsy shop here.

Be sure to check out some tips on coloring techniques in the videos on my Facebook page here and here.

I cannot thank you all enough, my wonderful community of friends
, for all of your encouragement and support through this whole coloring book project from the very beginning stages to now, my second printing!

On another note: I am now offering original watercolor paintings in my Etsy shop of this brand new illustration which is offered in both boy and girl options. I am also offering color art prints as well as sketch only prints with no color. Click on the image to read more information on each option.



I would be honored if you shared this link to my coloring book with your friends and family who might enjoy this new fun craze of adult coloring. It is so relaxing after a stressful day.



As always, thank you for being a part of our wonderful community. I am so grateful for each and every one of you!

Did you know that every art print you order from Phyllis Harris Designs is handmade by me?

 

This is a recent photo taken in my studio(the clean-ish corner) where I create all my art for my shop, print all my own prints for my shop, build all my own canvases for my shop each and every day for Phyllis Harris Designs. Did you know that every art print you order from Phyllis Harris Designs is handmade and packaged and shipped by me?! Yep, just little old me.  And yes, I am bare foot. Now, you know why so many of the little children in my art are bare foot! My favorite way to be!

Customized or commissioned art? What's the difference?

Dear Friends,

My specialty is personalizing or customizing my art to fit my customers needs but I often get requests for an original commissioned piece of art as well. So what's the difference between customizing and commissioning? Great question!

Most of my art is customizable! My customizations include changing the hair color, and some of the color of the clothing but only to the existing art. I don't usually change the drawing itself, only the colors if needed, unless I have had an email conversation and the customer and we agree on an extra fee. I can also add or change existing text if there is any, add a name or favorite verse or saying for no extra charge. For my typical customization just enter the specific customization instructions in the “Notes to seller” text box at checkout.

However, I do sometimes get a request for an original piece of art from scratch and that is what I call a "commissioned" piece. That can be anything from using an existing background of another already existing art print and adding all new characters(which was the case of the piece I just finished below for a client) or even just adding a different dog/animal or another child to a print. In those cases there is an email discussion and an agreed fee amount and then I create a custom listing for that customer. Those can range from $50-$400 depending on the difficulty of the art.



No matter which way I create, I am so honored and blessed to be able to do what I love so thank you all for that!!

As my business grows it will most likely morph and change and I so appreciate you all being along for this adventure and journey along the way.

As always, thank you for being a part of our wonderful community. We are so grateful for each and every one of you!

I'm Back!!

Dear Friends,

As many of you know...I took the month of February off to recharge my creative batteries and to take my first vacation in about 3 years since starting my business, Phyllis Harris Designs.

Well, I'm back!! Refreshed and renewed and ready to get back to being creative and to doing what I love!
Phyllis Harris Designs is now back open and running full speed!

Just to share a bit with you all...I spent the entire month of February on the small northern most Hawaiian island, Kauai. The north shore of Kauai is one of my very favorite spots that I have ever had the privilege of visiting on this earth. We were blessed with perfect weather the entire time and that was extra special considering the terrible winter most states in the US encountered this winter!

Here are just a few photos I took that I had to share with you from our amazing time in Kauai, HI.






I didn't work at all while I was there but I had to take my sketchbook along so here is a peek of just one entry. :)



Spring-like weather has been keeping me smiling this past week. I hope you are enjoying some warmer temps as well wherever you may be.

As always, thank you for being a part of our wonderful community. We are so grateful for each and every one of you!

It's been a very long dry spell.

It's been a very long dry spell with my being able to sit down and draw or paint. A form of this doodle has been in my sketchbook for a while now… I think it's finally time to bring it to life.Here is the first rough sketch. It is a work in progress.
