A Colouring & Drawing Adventure in Support of The ARCHIE Foundation Tayside!
The imagineers is a colouring an drawing adventure like no other. Created by over 50 artists from Dundee and around the world, this book will take your imagination on a journey. Colour in pictures drawn by international best-seller Johanna Basford, take a tour of the Whimsical Lush castle, colour ARCHIE himself drawn by official ARCHIE artist Claire Mackie, learn how to draw and create your own imaginary worlds. 100% of the profits from this 80 page book are being donated to The ARCHIE Foundation Tayside to create a brand-new twin paediatric operating theatre suite at Tayside Children's Hospital, Ninewells Hospital, Dundee.
You can help us maximise our fundraising by pre-ordering your book today which will help us lower the print costs. Books will be shipped out in November meaning they are the perfect Christmas gift.
The Imagineers has been made possible thanks to the generosity of dozens of wonderful artists from all over the world who have donated their work, many of whom live in or have a connection to Dundee. In fact, several of them were born in Ninewells hospital.
Inside The Imagineers you'll find two pages drawn by international best-seller and Guinness world record holder Johanna Basford OBE. Johanna has sold over 20 Million Books in 40 Countries, but her career began as a textiles student at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee. She continues to be an avid supporter of good causes and we are thrilled about her support for The ARCHIE Foundation Tayside.
Johanna is joined by a whole collection of artists of equally high calibre. You might also recognise the fabulous Suzanne Scott a.k.a Whimsical Lush, artist co-ordinator of Oor Wullie's Bucket Trail and artist on Discovery Walk, as well as several of the artists who painted a Wullie statue. The Imagineers promises to be a 'must have' this festive season.
