Unless you have been living under a rock you must have heard of the coloring books for adults craze. When you walk in to B&N there are over 40 different coloring books right by the doors.
Mr.Knaak recently decided to create a coloring book Based on his Dragonrealm Series.It is about an empire ruled by shape shifting Dragons. Now that alone is cool right? Well Thats just the beginning. First let me explain why this is such a EPIC thing to me.
I have been a Fan of Richard Knaak since I was 11 years old. That was when I read The Legend of Huma
At that time it was my favorite book I had ever read. Not that impressive for an 11 year old? Then you didn’t know me. Even back then I read a lot. Soon after Huma I read Kaz the Minotaur and to this day it is one of my favorites. I don’t know what it is about it but I just love that big Cow.
What does that have to do with the news? Nothing really. But it might help you to understand how Excited and Proud I am to announce that the Illustrator for his new coloring book will be my daughter Kelsy Sherman!!
Kelsy is a Freshmen at ASU in the Medical program. And I had been trying to get here to sell her art on weekends to earn a bit of extra money. I made a post on FB in a group Richard is in and he saw a few Dragons
He asked if she was able to draw non cute dragons and I responded with
Telling him that was based on a poster but she drew it. We talked a bit after that and the next morning I asked my daughter if she would want to maybe draw some stuff. Richard said he wanted a mean dragon climbing on a throne possessively. It was a Friday and she had Classes but throughout the day she did this on her phone…. While at Med school.
Her final drawing was sent to the publishers and he liked it. They had been interviewing people all over the world. But they made the right choice. So join me in congratulating my Brilliant, beautiful, and extremely talented daughter Kelsy
