5 Questions with Jessica Mazurkiewicz: An Exclusive Dover Interview
Jessica Mazurkiewicz's graphic designs appear in books and magazines as well as on clothing and dinnerware — and, of course, many of Dover's bestselling coloring books. With the help of our Facebook friends, we put together a few questions for this talented artist.
1.) Your coloring and activity books are directed at a younger audience. Have you been drawing since you were little, and do you call upon your "inner child" for inspiration?
I have always loved to draw and make things with my hands. I'm the oldest of several sisters and when we were young I used to make little activity books and pages for them to color. I remember how I would wrack my brain to create something fun and interesting for them to enjoy — a very similar process takes place in my mind now, just for a much larger group of color artists.
