Black author designs educational coloring boo

DESOTO, Tex. – As a kid, Setria James was the sibling who did not make the best of grades. Art was the only subject that she could not mess up in.

That creativity led James to her current career as a graphic designer, artist and book illustrator. She created Doodles: Alphabet Coloring Fun out of her passion for art and childhood pastime of doodling.

James’ new book is not your average coloring book. There are many alphabet-coloring books in the market; however, her book is the only book that utilizes original doodles instead of stock illustration.

“Doodling and coloring is what sent me on a path of becoming a creative professional,” says James, who understands that coloring is not just child’s play. “During my research [for this book], I discovered the importance of coloring in childhood development as it encourages self-expression, color recognition, grip control and coordination, while also building motor skills.” 

Doodles: Alphabet Coloring Funis filled with James’ doodles to aid children with word to letter associations. There are up to 52 images for children to discover and color while building essential child development skills.
