We are honored to introduce you Steve Mcdonald, Canadian artist and illustrator.
Married and dad of two young girls : Roxana and Asha, Steve is graduated from Art and Design. He lives in Ontario (Canada) and has lived in many countries including Italy, Saudi Arabia, India and Indonesia … it’s thanks to all his travels that he has found the inspiration for his coloring books projects.
Today he succeeds in the world of Art, particularly in the field of the coloring pages for adults … His success is undeniably due to his incredible imagination and talent !
It was in 2014, when Steve created the coloring book “Fantastic Cities” that everything changed. Having seen his project, many publishers fought to sign a contract with him. It was finally Chronicle Books who had the chance to do it.
Steve was far to imagine that his book would be so successful ! This allowed him to rise, and sold over half a million copies while he was expecting only a few thousand.
Fantastic Cities has 48 pages of actual and imagined aerial views, these drawings are very detailed and offer hours of coloring for a single page of them. You can go from San Francisco to Hong Kong through Moscow.
Among his projects there are :
- Fantastic Planet : A 60-page coloring book highlighting fauna and flora. We find desert landscapes, jungle, forest, majestic trees, many animals, flower fields and many more.
- Fantastic Structures : It’s the sequel of Fantasy planet. This book explores the monuments, individual buildings, streets and bridges of six continents including the Eiffel Tower, London’s Tower Bridge, a Florentine Bridge, St. Basil’s Cathedral …
- Fantastic Machines : It celebrates the beauty of the machines and devices of this world. If you like pinball machines, space stations, motorcycles, circuits .. this is the book you need.
- Fantastic collections : Steve uses his sense of detail to draw collections of impressive objects inspired by unusual things and everyday life. There are for example collections of butterflies, cameras, antiques ..
Steve shares his passion for travel and exploration through his coloring pages. It shows us that the world contains many landscapes, objects, monuments or plants that deserve to be highlighted.
