Serving the faithful since 1960
Jo Ann Kargus s drawings for St. Louis Splendor are all hand-drawn from her own reference. She features architectural details of each subject, but simplifies the overall drawing into a pleasant composition. She admits it was hard to choose only 50 landmarks for the book. I love perspective and architecture, and I think of my coloring book drawings as fun realism. These 50 drawings let people color and create art without the panic of looking at a blank sheet of paper and not knowing where to start. I hope people get enjoyment from coloring my illustrations whether it just relaxes them or they really like how their end product turned out.
