Dust & Wonder

A colouring-in poster book on our relationship with nature
Dust & Wonder

Dust & Wonder is an A3 colour-in poster book I wrote and illustrated.

One of the things that got me started with art in the first place as a child was picture books of animals. In fact, I used to do ink studies of photographs of endangered animals back when I was in high school. That formed a lot of the inspiration for this project, and is probably why this is also one project I’m really proud of.Dust & Wonder contains ten perforated poster pages that can be torn out, coloured in, and maybe even framed if you really wanted to. It features a few endangered and extinct animals from around the world, alongside information on the current state of the environment and our relationship with it.

I wanted to make this book more informative and interesting rather than a stern lecture, so I used a warm autumnal colour palette to highlight the whimsicality of the fonts and illustrations. I also got these books hand-stitched so as to reflect the natural aesthetic and overall concept.

I even have a few copies left of this book so if you’d like to buy a copy($50 each) please contact me.
