In the past, (late 1800’s and early 1900’s) pen and ink and woodcut illustration reached reached it’s peak in creativity and simple design elegance. In the past, (late 1800’s and early 1900’s) pen and ink and woodcut illustration reached it’s peak in creativity and simple design elegance. This was before photo lithography printing corrupted the art with mass reproduced photographs. So publishers were willing to pay well for popular talented artists that could draw illustrations that would really attract the public with their quality designs and so the art of illustration flowered. For this book, I have tried to make similar examples of these wonderful illustrations for this coloring book presentation. These
illustrations are my own drawings done in the manner of vintage Illustrated Romantic and Fairy Tale books because there are just not enough real Hawaiian vintage illustrations available.

These designs are for colorists that just want to complete elegant designs. This artist has done other coloring books but he specializes in bigger Hawaiian paintings. All the works included here are by the Hawaiian artist Stephen E Jorgensen. He has over 200 other works of beautiful Hawaiian art available on his Etsy website. Most of his work is large canvas wall hangings, some of which are reduced to coloring pages for his Relaxing Hawaiian Scenes Coloring books. See these artworks at hawaiiseascapes.etsy.com.

I have colored-in samples of these vintage illustrations to show what they could look like and I show them in this illustrated book. Of course you are free to chose your own colors. Most of the images are outlines of recognizable objects or figures so you should be able to just color in the spaces to fit what the object is without just following the picture example. It is easy and relaxing doing Vintage illustrations. Have fun coloring these Hawaiian Vintage Illustrations!
