A little interview with the artist…
Q1. What do you enjoy drawing the most?
Alan Robert: I have always been really into drawing monsters and creepy stuff, ever since I was a little kid. My first memories of drawing were around the time I saw the original Star Wars movie in the theater (1977), I was only six! I loved the Tusken Raiders and all of the crazy creatures in the Cantina scene. Really inspiring for me. All throughout school, I took art classes and eventually received a scholarship to The School of Visual Arts in NYC. While earning my Bachelors degree in Fine Arts, I studied under the legendary comic book artist Walter Simonson (The Mighty Thor), who I learned a tremendous amount from.
Q2. How did you get started? AR: Well, I was all set to try and become a professional comic book artist straight after graduation (1993), but the rock band I formed with some childhood friends had just landed a record deal. It seemed like recording an album and touring the world was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so I decided to put the art on hold and pursue the music. The band is called Life of Agony and it became very successful in the 90s. For over two decades, we’ve shared stages with the biggest names in rock, including Metallica, Black Sabbath, Foo Fighters, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. The band is still very active and has a new record coming out in 2017 called “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” (Napalm Records).
Anyway, somewhere around 2010, the band was on break and I never lost my love for comic book storytelling. I got my big break from award-winning publisher IDW Publishing when they agreed to release my original horror comic series titled “Wire Hangers,” which I both wrote and illustrated. The series developed a following and I continued to release more titles through IDW every year after that. Series include “Crawl to Me” and “Killogy.” Crawl to Me is in the process of being adapted into a live-action feature film, and Killogy is being developed as an animated series and video game.Q3. Who or what has inspired you?AR: Growing up I was inspired by comic artists like Mike Zeck (The Punisher), Mike Mignola (Hellboy), Dave McKean (Batman: Arkham Asylum), Frank Miller (Sin City), etc. Inspiration also comes from films. I’m a big movie guy. I soak everything in. I’m also inspired by trying new techniques. I purposely challenge myself to try different styles when taking on new projects. In fact, each of my books has its own unique look to them. This was done intentionally. Sometimes it takes me several months to refine the style before beginning the actual pages. For The Beauty of Horror: A GOREgeous Coloring Book, I tried something completely new. I inked the pages using consistent, thin line weight. No use of shadows, no thick outlines. That was a challenge for me, especially coming off my last comic series “Killogy” which was done using a lot of thick, heavy strokes and shadows. Q4. What materials do you enjoy using? AR: My pen and ink illustrations are mostly done by hand, scanned into the computer and then digitally enhanced. For inking, I mostly use Pigma Microns on Bristol Board. Q5. Do you like to color in your designs or prefer to have others do that? AR: For my various comic book series, I colored everything digitally in using Adobe Creative Suite. It’s been a lot of fun having complete creative control…especially since I am illustrating my own stories. That being said, I am so looking forward to seeing what colorists out there do with my illustrations from The Beauty of Horror! That is really super exciting for me. I am constantly blown away by the posts I’ve seen online by adult coloring book enthusiasts. There are some seriously incredibly talented people out there. Q6. What supplies (brands) to you recommend for your book(s)? AR: I personally enjoy Faber Castell Polychromos sets and LYRA Rembrandt Polycolors, but as I’ve learned by creating my own art, sometimes you need to try new things in order to find the right style. I’m always eager to try a new brand out. Q7. What is your favorite coloring book other than your own? AR: All of Johanna Basford’s books are amazing. I also really dig the Animorphia series. Q8. What is your favorite thing to do when you aren’t doing art? AR: Spending time with my family and rockin’ on stage with Life of Agony. Q9. Who is your favorite coloring book artist?AR: Johanna Basford. Q10. Can you tell us about any other projects you are working on?AR: We are wrapping up the latest Life of Agony record and headed out on tour overseas in November & December. The record drops in early 2017. Other than that, my film production team and I are gearing up to film the live-action Crawl to Me movie this winter… and you never know, with all the excitement surrounding The Beauty of Horror, I just may have to draw a sequel!

Enchanted Halloween: A Whimsy Girls Fantasy Coloring Book
This book by Hannah Lynn has rave reviews like this one “I absolutely LOVE this coloring book!! I will be coloring EVERY single picture in this book. Nice crisp white pages with perfectly clean lines, no errors whatsoever in the linework.” There are 30 different illustrations with 2 copies of each for a total of 60 coloring pages with Createspace paper so suitable for colored pencils, most markers will bleed through this paper so be sure to put a divider between your work and the next page. *It was included by special requests from our Facebook members.
Jasmine Becket-Griffith shares her Halloween dreams with beautiful gothic maidens, magical autumn fairies, characters from Dia de los Muertos, and a fun mix of pumpkins, witches, and skeletons. Each coloring pattern features a description of the painting it’s based on. I have her first coloring book and the paper is just glorious which is the reason for the price being higher than your CreateSpace books.
While not specifically geared to Halloween, Grim Fairy Tales includes 45 pages of truly spooky illustrations. You can bring these pages to life from playful costumed, fairy tales characters to frighteningly chilling monsters. This book has some sexy coloring images in it as well following a similar take on the material as the original.
