Description

Pictura showcases a stunning range of art to collect and admire and encourages beginning to advanced artists to put their own stamp of creativity on the artwork by coloring it in. Its unique accordion foldout format makes it an attractive decorative piece that can be displayed and shared with others. Some of the world's most famous and respected illustrators set the foundation of the artwork by creating beautiful, original, and imaginative scenes. It is up to the individual to color in these spectacular settings, enhancing the scenes and adding their own personal touch. Coloring New York Jazz features the unique art of talented artist Tomislav Tomic, whose style is so detailed and precise that his drawings take on an engraved look. Through Tomislav's beautiful renderings of the New York Jazz era, circa 1920, artists are transported to the streets of the city that never sleeps, with dancing flappers, vintage automobiles, skyscrapers, and jazz musicians. On the flip side of the panel, artists can learn more about the featured landmarks and how to draw the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and Yankee Stadium, all within the same bustling scene. With so many details packed into an 8-panel display, Coloring New York Jazz invites artists to explore an exciting time and place in history from the comfort of their own home.
