It was November and the Penn State Football team had just beaten Michigan State to clinch the Big Ten East Title. This team was exciting to watch and I was overflowing with school spirit. I looked for a Penn State coloring book for myself and my two children, but was surprised that there wasn’t one on the market. I knew I could draw the pictures - I graduated in Art Education from Penn State in 1994 - but I was out of my element when it came to publishing, licensing, and marketing. I ended up partnering with Mascot Books, a publishing company who helps authors through the process. I’m really excited about the release of this book. I used a mixture of complicated and simple drawings to appeal to all ages because as an adult, I still love to color as much as my children. I wanted to capture not only the beauty of the campus, but also the love I have for my hometown and alma mater. I’m hoping that love translates to the buyer.
