Two splotches wandering through an abstract landscape.

Coincidentally, this is also a perfect picture for this week's Illustration Friday Topic of "Theater".

What are splotches?

They are wonderful abstract creatures by Steve Loya.

Steve is making them available for free. You can download them, draw on them, paint on them, use them in collage ...etc.

I have picked these expressive actors to perform on my abstract theatrical stage.

You can add make up, costumes, ... to complete the production.

There are already 100 splotches to choose from. Go over to Steve's site to check them out.

Also, check out Steve's rendition of this scene. This is great collaboration!

Looking for places for the splotches to play in, consider my abstract landscapes. They are free too.

Page 8990 to 8995, and a heartfelt Thank you

I would like to thank Rinku over at MetaFilter for his post on this and my other blogs. After reading one of the feedback, the one by Artw, I have come up with an usability improvement. Starting with this post, I am including a shortcut link for each drawing that will bring up the full size version in one click. I hope you will find this time-saving feature useful.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank other authors who have blogged about this site, or have linked to this site. They have been tremendously helpful in introducing these colouring pages to a much wider readership.

Making the first 1000 drawings has been a very rewarding journey. I am looking forward to what the next 1000 drawings will bring. I hope you have found them enjoyable and will come back to check out the future ones. If your children or yourself, or nieces and nephews, or your art classes ..., have coloured them, or used them in projects, and do not mind sharing, please send me links or images of the output. I would love to learn what have become of these drawings.
