What a surprise to come home to! After unpacking aftermy two week holiday I found a message in my in box from a thoughtful lady who sent me a heads up that she saw one of my videos featured on a commercial on channel for a segment to be aired on the Today Show, channel nine, Australia. The trouble was I got the message five days too late to actually watch it on the television. My hubby immediately went digging for the video on the interwebs and we found it. 🙂 The piece is part of a ‘trends of 2015’ news item. (It’s a bit slow to load so be patient.) The actual colouring article starts at 3:42 so skip ahead to that point on the timeline.
I thought it would just feature a range of different colouring books and colourists but I was gobsmacked to see the entire article showed a segment of one of my colouring tutorials with the casts making comments over the top. A pity they didn’t do their research a bit better… these are colouring books designed for adults… not the naughty version they were alluding to. And a pity they failed to name either myself of Johanna Basford as the original artist of the book. (Also strange that they failed to contact me to ask permission to use my work or even let me know.) But in any case it was fun to see a bit of me up on the t.v.
