    Hi Pinsiders,

    You might know me as 1/2 of Coin-Op Carnival. Well, I'm releasing my next book in just a couple days.

    kickstarterPromo00a (resized).jpg

    It's an interactive art book which I've illustrated and YOU can COLOR! Each drawing started with an illustration in a corner of my sketchbook...

    ...and was eventually mirrored and duplicated into a larger composition:

    kickstarterPromo01b (resized).jpg

    After a successful and exhausting campaign at the start of this year, I was looking around for a relaxing way to get my drawing hand moving again. These mirror drawings provided a restorative outlet of self-care I needed, and I hope they'll do the same for you, as I'm having them printed on uncoated paper stock so that YOU can COLOR them!

    Here are some more examples:

    Each spread of the book shows the completed and mirrored illustration paired with a photograph of the original sketch so you can see the surprising ways the images tile together. Regardless of whether you choose to color the pages or simply browse the illustrations and allow their odd qualities to wash over you, I hope it provides a similarly restful experience for you that it did for me.

    The Mirror Drawings campaign page goes live in a couple days and I'd love to share this book with you. If you're interested in sharing this with folks, you can simply direct them to:

    www.MirrorDrawings.com

    Thanks for your interest and support of my work.

    Take care,
    Ryan Claytor

    Your pinside t-shirt came up in another thread, so I thought I’d search your stuff and found this thread.

    Just here to bump it up.

    Great work, same as usual. I enjoyed looking at the finished work and trying to figure out where the mirror spot was. Things like the rocket ship were easy, but it took me a second for the pumpkins. Very creative.

    Ha-ha! Thanks for your kind words here, Luckydogg420 ! Really appreciate it.

    While the launch campaign is over, the book can now be purchased at the same address:

    Hope this helps,

    My book just came in yesterday. It's really cool in terms of both art and styling. Perfect coffee table book to bide the time waiting for the next Coin-Op Carnival
