Adobe Coloring Book

Chapter Three

Color along with us as we serve up new illustrations that you can print or finish with your favorite Adobe apps. Each week this spring, the Adobe Coloring Book will feature coloring pages created by some of our favorite artists.

We asked this week’s artists to be inspired by pets and other animals. You can download a PDF to print, a PSD to color in Photoshop or Adobe Fresco, or a JPEG to color in another app of your choice. Keep calm and color on—and when you’re finished, share your colorful creations with us on social media with the hashtag #AdobeColoringBook!

Rob Biddulph 

Rob Biddulph is a bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator, and the official World Book Day illustrator. His debut picture book, Blown Away, was the second illustrated book in history to win the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, and his third book, Odd Dog Out, was nominated for a total of eight literary prizes, winning the BSC Festival of Literature Picture Book Award and the UKLA Student Shadower’s Vote Book Award. His tenth picture book, Dog Gone, will be published in September 2020. In March 2020 he started #DrawWithRob, a series of twice-weekly draw-along videos designed to help parents whose children were forced to stay home from school due to the coronavirus pandemic. It has garnered millions of YouTube impressions and been used as a learning resource by thousands of families across the globe. About his coloring page, Biddulph says, “I’ve drawn a peacock for you to color in. He is fanning his beautiful tail. If you would like to color him in using regular peacock colors, blues and greens and golds, that’s absolutely fine. But I thought it might be nice if we think of this particular bird as a magic peacock. Maybe his tail is rainbow colored. Maybe it’s scattered with golden stars. Maybe it’s a psychedelic kaleidoscope of swirls and flashes. I think you should let your imagination run wild and just have fun with it. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.”

So I wanted to incorporate Australian animals into my coloring page. I like the idea of the animals teaming up to achieve getting the pear too.”

You can give this pony a realistic coat and mane, like a chestnut brown or a golden palomino, or you can make it a bit more fantastical! Add wings, a horn, maybe a rainbow tail! Make a pony that’s perfect for you.”
