From Saint George and the Dragon to Puff the Magic Dragon and Cressida Cowell’s modern-day book series, How to Train a Dragon, the lore of dragons passes from one generation to the next. Fearsome, magical and majestic they still have the power to thrill us, scare us and entertain us.
At Whimsical Publishing, Micheline and I are really excited to breath new life into the iconic dragon with our new colouring book, Whimsical’s World of Dragons.
Designed to delight and inspire, artists Micheline Ryckman and newcomer, Hayden Wolf, will also include a step-by-step guide to budding artists and dragon enthusiasts everywhere to create and colour their own magical creatures.
We’ve included a sneak peek inside the book below. Details of how you can win a copy of our new colouring book – due out this fall – will follow soon.
When my oldest son, Will, was turning three he had one wish for his birthday –a green dragon piñata. It took me days to papier-mâché one using a large balloon for the body and shaping everything else out of newspaper rolled into various shaped and sized cones. After several more hours cutting and gluing strips of green tissue paper my first piñata was born.
Will loved it so much he refused to let me fill it with candy or be beaten with the traditional piñata stick. Thus “Dragon” became an official party decoration and spent the next three years hanging from a hook in our basement collecting dust.My youngest son never requested a dragon piñata for his birthday (and I certainly never offered to make one!). He has, however, requested numerous dragon books over the years. From Ernest Drake’s Field Guide to Dragons to Cressida Cowell’s modern-day How to Train a Dragon book series, Thom was hooked.Over the years the boys and I have drawn dragons, written stories about dragons, read books about dragons and are big fans of the classic dragon movie, Dragonheart.
Perhaps that’s why I’m so excited to share with you Whimsical Publishing’s big news: WE’RE PUBLISHING A DRAGON COLOURING BOOK! With original artwork by house artist Micheline Ryckman and newcomer Hayden Wolf, this book will also include a step-by-step guide for budding artists and dragon enthusiasts everywhere to create and colour their own magical creatures.
Stay tuned for a sneak peek inside the book and details of how you can win a copy of our new colouring book due out this fall! In the meantime, check out this cool website on how to make your own dragon piñata!
I just posted some NEW dragon colouring pages in my Etsy shop > MISH MASH. My kids love dragons – it’s pretty much all they ever draw! I was the same as a kid – so this was a trip down memory lane. Although I was a little rusty on my dragon anatomy… thanks to my daughter, Hannah I made it through! Check these out!

This bejeweled dragon was created by my 11 year old son, Hunter, and myself. It was super fun to work together with him on this! We hope there is some kids (or maybe even grown-ups ) out there who will enjoy coloring this fanciful creature!
