Steve McDonald’s Colouring books are featured here on their own page here and are a favorite with guys as they are not filled with flowers and fairies but instead architectural lines and fantastic machines that exist only in the mind of this Canadian artist. Steve now splits his time living between Creemore, Ontario, and Bali, Indonesia with his wife Jackie and their two daughters, Roxana and Asha.
Steve’s latest book is entitled Fantastic Machines! The cover photo made me feel very nostalgic, it’s a pinball machine.
Steve’s books tend to be a bit intimidating but in this one, he has softened the edges a bit.
