Meet Alecia

My name is Alecia (my mother spelled my name with an “e” and I spend my life correcting the traditional spelling), and I am an illustrator who prefers to draw by hand rather than digitally. I have published two adult coloring books and a graphic memoir of cartoons. I am a voracious reader, love travel, music and theatre, and consider my sense of humor to be an invaluable asset in my life. But most of all, I love to draw.

Alecia Blake’s Adult Coloring Books

Featuring 30 pages of elaborate borders with color-in type and illustrations full of the whimsy of childhood, Color in Wonder: An Adult Coloring Book of Childhood Memories is sure to inspire feelings of nostalgia. Colorists will enjoy varied, intricate backgrounds, full of country, forest, beach and playground scenes, floral patterns, toys, dolls, butterflies, kitties, and much more.

 

Alecia’s extensive background as a fashion illustrator gave her the idea to create Color in Fashion: A Stylish Adult Coloring Book. Inside you will find 30 pages of fashion figures set in varied, intricate backgrounds, full of city and country scenes, paisley and floral patterns, butterflies, loops, and much, much more.

Praise for Alecia’s Coloring Books

One of the best fashion coloring books I have seen so far!

 

Alecia Blake is a fashion illustrator by trade and it shows. Where some fashion coloring books merely pattern simple designs, this book is much more focused on what a fashionista would like first, then translating that idea into a coloring page. I really enjoyed browsing through and have picked my first design to color in… if my friend doesn’t snatch the book from me after seeing it at coffee today.

Latest Work

Sketching from live models is a true passion/pleasure of mine, and I’m still happily doing that, enjoying all of the online virtual drawing sessions that have become available recently. Drawing fashion illustrations is my favorite pastime, as that is how I started my career.
