Leftist Coloring Pages

A friend of mine recently asked me to contribute some work to a coloring book she was putting together to have available at some speaking events she’s doing. She told me to just draw whatever I felt like. I was very grateful for the opportunity to be included, and I decided to do a series of more radical illustrations that highlight some of the larger issues with capitalism, racism, sexism, and other hierarchical forms of oppression in this world. The illustrations aren’t intended to make people feel bad, but rather to help them feel connected to their fellow humans and to the planet we share, and help them find a peaceful place as they color so that they can come back fresh to fight the good fight. Sometimes it’s hard not to internalize all the bad things that exist, but that isn’t what these images are about. It’s to remind and inspire us to reach past the forces holding us down, for a better existence.

There is No Away Coloring Pages

There is No Away is my favorite book I’ve completed so far, and it has been a huge hit at the preschool I’ve been working at. There are quite a few kids who just know my by the book, and whenever they see me, they ask me to bring the book to their class (or to their house) 🙂 I think protecting our planet is a great message for kids to start learning, and learning about ways to do can lead to independent, creative, community minded people! If you want to expand your conversation about where things go when they get thrown out, or even just use up the other side of some papers, here are some There is No Away coloring pages free to download and print! 😀

Like A Girl ABC Coloring Book Pages (A-E)

Like a Girl ABC’s, which focuses on different aspects and careers that women and girls can, and do, participate in, and have, is almost finished. These coloring pages are some of the first pages of the book! They have been enjoyed by my preschool class, and I hope you enjoy them as well! Some are based on real life women (Ellen Ochoa, the first Hispanic-American woman in space) and some on everyday women and girls who behave in extraordinary ways, such as helping a family pet. Enjoy!
