Niet zeuren, maar kleuren

The idea, to start an alternative site that offers drawings for children to colour, seems to resonate with some of the readers of this blog. So, here we go! What is needed first of all are inspiring, exciting and original black & white drawings in all categories. The main age of the children who like do colouring is between five and ten. When I told our children (9 and 14) that we maybe start such a site, I got all kind of suggestions. Like offering idea’s and scenarios for cartoons, and even complete courses. My brother has made a booklet in which he explains the basics of how to draw comic characters; stuff like that can be on the site too. But first we need enough black & white drawings to make it interesting for the visitors.
So, if you happen to be a (comic) artist or know some, or if you can offer other material to make such a site a success, or if you have any suggestions, please let me know. A good name is definitely needed first of all, by the way. My best suggestion so far is the title of this story.
I spend the Christmas days with my love’s family in Germany, and apart from reading a tremendous great novel and eating some delicious “aardappelkroketten”, I made some more Luchtkastelen. Here they are:
Next time more about that novel!
And here is a “Luchtkasteel” that Aris coloured.
He did it on a computer, which is of cours also a feature that the site must have.
