This is the pdf edition so that you can print it out to isolate the pictures if you worry about marker bleed through.
This is a coloring book and set of short stories wherein the artwork was created during and for the annual Mermay challenge and drawn mostly as a visual expansion to the world in my Selkies' Skins series of novels. I wished to draw mostly non-traditional merfolk. You will find depictions of merfolk both mammalian and fish. The various species of merfolk do not always share our human views of body covering. In my world when they wear clothing it is more for ceremonial reasons. Male, female, and even some that are intersexed because of their type are in these pages. There are tells for those that are more mammalian in type. Certain body parts are not present and the eyes of children have been kept in mind. It is on the order of a National Geographic episode for those that need a comparison.
This is created more with teens and adults in mind. Some who know me from my books and short stories will note that an extra name is included.
I write under Teresa Garcia and illustrate under Teresa Amehana Garcia. If you wish to know more about the world of Selkies’ Skins then Selkies’ Skins: Castle and Well is the first book of Kirsty’s skinquest. There are several side and short stories as well as a prequel available. The second book of that series is currently in progress. The other series available and which crosses over in places are my Dragon Shaman books. At some future point I hope to finally have The Shadow Chronicles ready to join these.
I hope you enjoy coloring these 32 coloring spaces and reading the explanations and stories that accompany them.
If you'd like to print out a copy for a friend as well (example, a gift) please select multiple copies in the amount you'd like. Or you can send them the file by instead purchasing with the gifting feature that should be available. If you are a teacher and you'd like to use it in class you may, just pop me a note as that would make my day.
This includes the pdf version of the physical book available currently on Amazon. It also includes a copy of the final front cover.
