Johanna Basford, an extraordinary artist, who creates intricate, hand drawn illustrations predominately, although not exclusively, in black and white. These are compiled in books for coloring purpose. Her illustrations are cultivated by a curious imagination and a delight in the fantastic. She told Dailymail that she had been inspired by her childhood visits to her grandparents’ home on the Isle of Arran in Ayrshire in south-western Scotland.“Every piece I create starts life as a simple pencil sketch, evolving into a rambling pen and ink drawing usually spanning several sheets of paper. I love the tactile nature of the materials I use and the joy of smudgy fingerprints,” she writes on her website. “For me, computer generated graphics can feel cold and soulless whereas hand drawing captures a sense of energy and character which no pixel can ever replicate.“If you are passionate for colors, you have to look at these pictures.
