COLOUR ME GOOD
14 JULY TO END OF AUGUST AT MAIDEN!!!
MAIDEN continues its mission to bring fun, creative products to life by hosting an interactive display of the fantastic range of COLOUR ME GOOD colouring-in books by I LOVE MEL.
The downstairs space at Maiden will be transformed into a brightly coloured “colouring-in cave” where visitors can sit and colour in pages from Mel’s fabulous books.
Although all the COLOUR ME GOOD titles will be featured, there will be a particular focus on the newest book in the series, ‘80s, which features a delightfully daft selection of icons and images from 1980s pop culture just begging for a felt tip pen to get to grips with them. Timmy Mallet, Bob “I’ll have a P please” Holness , Molly Ringwold, Dusty Bin, Orville, Charles and Di… all the favourites from the decade are there.
Mel will also be creating a magnificent 1980s shop window featuring work from her ‘80s book alongside a selection of the original items that inspired it.
ABOUT I LOVE MEL
I Love Mel started out life as a few badges that were made and handed out to make Mel Simone Elliott feel better after her boyfriend dumped her.
On Graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2007, Mel began designing fun, printed products such as colouring books and paper dolls and I Love Mel became less of a badge and more of a brand. Mel is originally from Barnsley in Yorkshire and now lives with her husband and three children in Northamptonshire.
The COLOUR ME GOOD series began in 2009 with Colour Me Good 'Kate Moss' and now also includes the titles Fashion, Art, Record Sleeves and London (with a Colour Me Good '90s on the way!)
Alongside the COLOUR ME GOOD books Mel also publishes a series of delightful PAPER DOLLS books featuring Debbie Harry, Kate Moss and Lady Gaga.
