The FRUIT of the SPIRIT Colouring Book is featured in a new video. The video showcases a single page – KINDNESS – from the book. In the video, you will see multiple variations of the colouring of the KINDNESS page. All of the coloured pages used for this video are the result of digitally colouring the KINDNESS e-page (available from this website’s store). The physical paperback (easy to color 11″ x 8.5″ pages) is available from Lulu.
The illustrations for FRUIT of the SPIRIT COLOURING BOOK were largely hand-drawn. If you look closely at the video, you may notice small variations in the line density and width of the black outlines in the illustration. These inconsistencies are consistent with using a real ink pen on physical paper for the original drawings. Computer-generated coloring book pages tend to show perfectly formed lines: no thickness variations, and no wiggles and squiggles that come from moving a real pen across real paper. Even high quality paper that appears smooth to the naked eye will still offer tiny furrows and hillocks for a pen tip to traverse. No paper (unless it is virtual) is perfectly smooth. The human hand also does not exert perfectly uniform pressure as it moves a pen across a surface. The result is a flow of ink that narrows and widens ever so slightly in response to the pressure. While computers can be set to mimic hand-drawing (with all its inherent quirkiness), many coloring book illustrators who design digitally opt for the computer’s default: PERFECT lines with no apparent human flaws.

The FRUIT of the SPIRT Colouring Book is a creative interpretation of the FRUIT of the SPIRIT mentioned in Galations 5:22-23. Each characteristic (e.g. goodness, joy, etc.) is associated with a unique, imaginative piece of fruit shown in cross-section (i.e. imagine a strange fruit sliced open just as you might cut an orange in half). What might this new fruit look like inside? This INSIDE VIEW of each fruit is what is captured in the almost abstract line illustrations that invite a relaxing, meditative colouring experience. There is detail galore for those who like it. While this book was created for adults, it is suitable for colouring enthusiasts of all ages. With it’s almost “retro-abstract” feel, the book is a great way for teens and older children to explore this scripture passage in a creative and colorful way.
Add your own splash of colour to full page, abstract illustrations focused on LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, and SELF-CONTROL. Each of the nine characteristics of the fruit of the Spirit also has a dedicated Bible study page (which comes free with the individual e-page package) where you can add colour while you explore scriptures that will deepen your understanding of the fruit of the Spirit. Turn your personal, family, or church group Bible study into a colourful, creative adventure with this FRUIT of the SPIRIT Colouring Book.
