Au­thor draws on cre­ativ­ity

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Books -

A LO­CAL artist and il­lus­tra­tor has de­cided to leave it up to the pub­lic to fin­ish his im­ages, re­leas­ing his first colour­ing book.

Kyle Hughes-Odgers’ book Off the Wall al­lows the reader to beau­tify his im­ages with what­ever they deem suit­able, whether it be bold strokes or soft lines.

Hughes-Odgers said he ded­i­cated the book to any­one who liked draw­ing all over ev­ery­thing.

“I would al­ways get in trou­ble at school for draw­ing through ev­ery class but I never saw any­thing wrong with it be­cause it helped me lis­ten,” he said. “I really like the idea of get­ting peo­ple draw­ing and colour­ing-in again.

“Colour­ing books are a great way to get cre­ative if you don’t nec­es­sar­ily know what you want to cre­ate. “

It’s made up from pages taken from years and years of my sketch books.”

Off the Wall is avail­able from www.fre­mantlepress.com.au.
