Being obsessed with creativity and art in general, Oliver has always been working on something creative whenever he had a free minute to spare. It has started early in childhood, when his mom tried to stop his brother and him from playing with toy guns. A witty child, Oliver has responded by drawing guns on cards and cutting them out, as well as making toy guns from Lego. As you see, the plan of Oliver’s mom didn’t quite work. However, a new talent was discovered!
Art has become an inseparable part of Oliver’s life. Living in London, the artist has access to many great art exhibitions. “It knocks my socks off every time I go to an art gallery and I see the unexpected”, he says. “London has such a vibrant scene at the moment and I’m sure it will keep growing.”
Oliver and ACG share a mutual goal: to see the adult coloring community grow and prosper. “I love it every time I see a new adult coloring book that is high quality and an original concept, I hope they keep coming”, he says.
Oliver has been introduced to adult coloring via his friend, who got him a fun swear word coloring book for Christmas. “I liked everything about it: it was beautifully illustrated, edgy, funny and a great thing to show people”, Oliver shared with AdultColoringGuide team. Since then he has become a fan of adult coloring. “It’s been a real eye opener witnessing the level of creativity and effort that goes into most adult coloring books. Seeing what other artists are capable of has definitely kept me on my toes”, he said. And as his collection of books and experience grew, he became more confident that he could make a real go of creating a unique adult coloring book himself.
And, luckily for us, he did! He is about to launch his first adult coloring book “Color That Hunk”. As you may have guessed from the name, this is not a typical adult coloring book with mandalas, flowers and butterflies. “It was really important to me that I didn’t just copy someone else’s concept. It had to be something unique” Oliver says quite passionately. After bouncing a few ideas around, Oliver decided to go with “Color That Hunk”. “I knew I would have fun putting something entertaining and a little edgy together” Oliver adds with a certain smile.
