The purpose of this book is to be a calming and creative outlet for those who like to color. This book is aimed for people of all ages who like to color. The subject are Japanese prints, but there are also coloring pages of Japanese objects and images of Korean and Chinese princesses—these are ones I have made myself. In a way, this book could informally be called Japanese Prints (Princes) and Chinese and Korean Princesses.
I am aesthetically drawn to Japanese prints and have been trying to recreate them for years. As a start, I copy existing Japanese prints to get a feel of how the face is structured, how the kimonos flow, and how hairstyles are articulated. Going through this process, I get more and more sense of how Japanese prints are drawn and created. Following this, I have been able to create several Japanese prints of my own—sometimes using some reference materials as aid and sometimes even drawing them from the top of my head.
