The Body Positive Coloring Book Project
Hi there! My name is Toni. I'm a single mom of an awesome kid on the Autism Spectrum, auntie to a slew of kids (one of whom inspired the project), and an artist.

My niece Jazmin asked me to draw a picture of a full sized lady she could color because there weren't any in her coloring book, and LIGHT BULB!!! The Body Positive Coloring Book Project was born!

I am working to create a dynamic, diverse coloring books featuring all kinds of people of all shapes, sizes, and ages that everyone will LOVE to color!

We've given away HUNDREDS of free coloring pages since beginning this project, and we would love to do more!

Our first book "Magical Creatures" is set to be released in time for the holiday season!

We have commissioned the use of Nick P Marton's work to release our second coloring book "Fat Girl ABC's" in early 2017- and there's more on the way!

What I hope to achieve
I plan to use the funds gained here to distribute free copies to low income parties, shelters, and community centers (and sick kids in hospitals, of course!) I am hoping this will provide one small window of positivity that everyone can color into shining stained glass!

Other Ways You Can Help
If you can't contribute financially, please consider helping by sharing! It's free to share on facebook and other social networking sites, and it helps so much!


When Jazmin and I first created this project, the goal was to print coloring books to sell and to also distribute free copies. We've never raised enough to go to print, so we put the funds we raise into self -printing and distributing coloring care packets with crayons. We've been able to give away hundreds of free packets since we began! For those who are interested in purchasing, we have started offering some high res copies that you can download at home on Etsy at etsy.com/shop/artbytonitails

Look what I woke up to! This mysterious note was on my pillow, & my room was magically clean! I have the sweetest niece ever!

She and I are scanning in our drawings today and converting them to coloring sheets. We are starting to see the gold at the end of the rainbow. I have a meeting set up with a volunteer liaison this Friday to discuss distribution!
