Household Stories - Grimm Colouring Book
Grimm Fairy Tales were not originally meant for children, they were aimed at adults. The early editions of Nursery and Household Tales contained remarkably dark elements. The stories routinely included sex, violence, incest, and copious footnotes. In this publication, Pallor Publishing brings you the artwork associated with the stories in black and white so that you can colour the images in any twisted way you so desire.
When Covid-19 hit us in early 2020, it foiled plans to re-publish this book with a proper launch. That's ok, because the original publication and launch was foiled by an apartment fire in 2014.
During the first lockdown in early 2020, I hosted a colouring contest with this book, and now with the second lockdown upon us, I'm offering the entire thing for free.

When starting a graphic design project from scratch or refining what you already have, a successful campaign will always pay close attention to its typography. Whether your aim is for expressive display type or strictly functional and refined, I can provide specialized knowledge in type design.
Focusing on book and editorial projects has led me to design several books from top to bottom. In addition to the overall typesetting, I consult with clients and help make decisions on the size and shape of the book, number of pages, the type of paper used, and many other aspects such as binding and cover design.

In addition to books, I enjoy designing decks of cards, and this is the area I’ve found an exciting new project to be spending all of my time on.
Whenever I need a break from designing typographical layouts on my computer, I design them on pieces of wood.
Let’s open a dialogue about creating original pieces of art, based off of the Vibrating Tarot project, to be sold at charitable silent auctions.
