Gorgeous Golden Ratio Colouring Book

I’ve had lots of people say “hey, have you seen this?”…

A kickstarter campaign for utterly gorgeous drawings by Venezuelan architect Rafael Araujo.

All painstakingly hand-drawn, with the guides etc all left in place, turned into a colouring-in book.

Reminds me of a cross between Vitruvian Man and some of Rodney Matthews more delicate stuff (but without the dragons etc).

The whole thing is beautifully put together – not just the artworks, but the campaign itself. I have no idea how he manages to keep things so tidy. My own workshop looks like some sort of special mess-bomb has gone off in it.

I mean his entire studio seems to be in the same palette as the colouring in book itself. God I wish I could be more like that. I’m not tho. I’m a child of chaos.

Still… less about me.

This campaign has managed to pull down over $300k so far – which is pretty astonishing. I should probably get one – I’ve been coming back to this again and again for days now. Gorgeous.

  1. Hi: I stumbled upon your website looking for calipers for artists to design their work. I noticed you have a golden section caliper, but I was wondering if you make calipers to design in root rectangles (Dynamic Symmetry). I teach design on my website, and I will be writing a blog post about the use of calipers in master artist’s work. I was also wondering if you had any interest in me mentioning your product on my website.
