Imaginarium by Franziska Wenzel is Now in Pre-order!

We are delighted to open pre-orders for Imaginarium, Luna's new colouring book by the talented Franziska Wenzel.

This colouring book for adult and young artists alike will be out on Tuesday 11th of February, 2020. Pre-order it on the Luna Press website!

Imaginarium is a blend of different worlds, featuring children, adults and creatures in both Fantasy and SF settings. Spaceships and dragons included!

Franziska says:

"I was born and raised in Bochum, Germany, and got a degree in Medieval and Renaissance Studies before I decided to pursue art instead.

I have been drawing all my life, and ever since there has been two constants in my art: I liked drawing animals as much as people, but fantasy people were infinitely more interesting than modern day and age people.

Although I mostly work digitally by now for efficiency, I still have a great fondness for traditional media. Working on Imaginarium has allowed me to share bits of everything: flowy, detailed linework, fantasy themes with dragons and mermaids (and spaceships), and giving people the opportunity to have physical interaction with my art. So grab your crayons and pencils!

A very few of the artworks are modified older drawings of mine that I revisited for the purpose of this book; some people who have known me for a few years might recognise them. However, the vast majority is brand new artwork that I have done especially for this book, so every picture was a new adventure.

Very often I made up scenes and designs on the spot, while some others are old stories and old ideas, to which I finally gave life. For some characters and animals shown here, I have an idea already what they would look like were I to colour them; for others, I deliberately didn’t think about it. In either case, I encourage everyone who bought this book to let their own imagination fly free. There are no “correct” colours, no matter which I had in mind when I first designed these characters and scenes. I would be thrilled to learn that everyone who bought the book coloured the images differently.

Please enjoy!"

Franziska Wenzel has a master’s degree in Medieval and Renaissance studies, but became a freelance artist instead. You can find her on Twitter @toradhart where she’s sharing a lot of art without trying to look professional.
