A year ago I was thrilled to be part of {9} The Gallery’s 3 year anniversary show “She Deck” – a showing of 50 skateboards designed by 50 women artists of Arizona. How rad is that?! Here’s the board I did, which sold!

As people stopped by my booth at the Jackalope Arts Festival, some noticed that I have the coloring books translated into Spanish, Navajo, and Tagalog (spoken in the Philippines). One question came up a few times.

“How can coloring books be translated? They’re just pictures!?”

That’s a fair question! The answer: Prismagic is different. Both in the images it offers to color and what it offers to aid in relaxation. Prismagic has positive mantras at the bottom of each page – to contemplate while you’re adding your colors.

Here are a few examples:

I radiate forgiveness and love.

I am happy with myself and my circumstances.

There are 26 positive mantras in all! There will be several other translations coming down the line. Also, for those who like to keep words away from their images – a mantra-free Prismagic will be on the shelves (well, virtual shelves anyway) soon!

If you’d like to get updated on upcoming events, translations, and get FREE coloring pages – please subscribe to the Prismagic newsletter.

Also – as always, you can purchase Prismagic on my Etsy page!

Local Arizona Artist designs a new ‘coloring book for adults’ called “Prismagic”

Prismagic Books will donate 1 book to hospitals serving veterans, children with cancer, and an Alzheimer’s Institute for every 1 book purchased in December & January

Prismagic Books is Giving Free Coloring Books Alzheime PatientsPhoenix , AZ, December 1, 2015– Phoenix artist Skye Lucking has created a coloring book geared toward relaxation and stress relief – “Prismagic – Coloring Book for Adults, Positive Mantra Edition”.  Skye has been drawing and painting all her life for fun and relaxation. Now, with the trend in adults coloring books gaining in popularity, she wants to share the therapeutic benefits of creativity with others.

“We live in stressful times, so it makes me very happy to see people embracing coloring and art therapy to relax and reduce anxiety. The idea behind “Prismagic” is to quite literally spread positive messages. I’ve included positive mantras such as “I am amazing.” and “I feel calm and relaxed.” beneath the coloring images to give people a positive message to think about while coloring, which is already a relaxing pursuit in itself.”

Recognizing the therapeutic benefits of coloring, Lucking will also be donating one coloring book to Phoenix based children’s cancer hospitals, Veterans Administration hospitals, and an Alzheimer’s Institute for every one book purchased online or at retail locations.

“Prismagic – Coloring Book for Adults” can be found on the website: http://www.prismagicbooks.com  on Skye Lucking’s Etsy Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SkyeLucking and on Amazon.com .
