Cryptozoology Coloring Book

Postby kennebel » Mon Jul 15, 2013 4:00 am

A friend of mine has created a "Cryptozoology Coloring Book" for kids... Or adults that like to color. Check it out:

I figured this crowd would be receptive. :)

That page/book needs a preview/sample/taste. I'm not gonna just throw down a whole dollar, blind! (Or, more importantly, burn another financial ID.)

Aw, c'mon ASID, where's your sense of adventure? Strangers have the BEST candy. So kick that stranger in the balls and rescue the perfectly innocent candy!

I downloaded it, and I'm happy to report it's got the Mongolian Deathworm, as well as my favorite cryptid, the Mothman. I'm just one box of crayons away from a VERY productive day. :mrgreen:

Today's forum entries have me concluding that there should be a smiley shaking its head in disbelief. Maybe a burned-out lightbulb.

My sense of adventure got the crap kicked out of it, decades ago. And, (s)he who kicks strangers in the balls has a short career.

Much better to smile, share a joke, distract with an accomplice, and then leave the stranger to wonder, hours later, what happened to his candy.

Now, you damn kids get away from my cave entrance!

Awesome!

I agree that a small preview would really bump sales though. Have forwarded to multiple people and most have replied "Wait, I can't see any of it first?"

But I'm glad a picked it up, definitely good times.

Hey all! I'm Greg Freeland the creator of the Cryptozoology Coloring Book. I heard about this conversation and I thought I'd clear some stuff up! First off, thanks for checking out my book! If you were curious, I do have some previews on my site here : http://www.gregfreeland.com/comics.html

I originally made the book for my oldest son who is obsessed with monsters and cryptids (he was the Mothman for Halloween last year) but with some cajoling and convincing from friends I collected the drawings and added descriptions and stuff for each creature. I wanted a little more than just monster pictures so I wrote the book like a 40s era propaganda pamphlet from a mysterious supernatural investigation/education called the "Puddingstone Institute". I'm working on a second book that should be out just in time for Halloween and I'm always looking for suggestions for future creatures to include!

Hey Greg, love your project and bought the book! My niece and nephew are gonna love this. If you're really taking suggestions, this would be my wishlist for a future book:
- Kraken
- Quetzalcoatl
- Aspidochelone
- and if you really want to pander to the Drabblecast, there's always the Nandi Bear!

I've colored a few pages; I'll post pics soonish, when I remember. :D

In case anyone wants to see what you get before buying, here's a selection. The book has 30 pages, so there's a lot more than what's pictured, but you get the idea.

Yup, I have to say that's pretty cool indeed. Makes me wish I had a kid so I could buy them a copy, then steal it, then colour in all the monsters the wrong colour. Werewolves are pink and green. You're too young to know that yet.
