You-Print Halloween Coloring Pages
Yay! Buz Carter sent along these Halloween coloring pages to share.

Buz who? You know, Buz the artist who is wasting his life earning a living posing as a programmer instead of following his passion for drawing. You see his handiwork every time you visit here. He illustrated and coded Thingamababy’s visual appearance.
And by “sent along these coloring pages” I mean he dropped them in my lap like he was unloading chocolate bars at an orphanage. A few he originally drew for his favorite local coffee shop, but the mad scientist is all ours, baby! Well, “all ours” insofar as its Creative Commons non-commercial share-alike with attribution license lets you copy and create derivative works. Oh, but I digress.
I like the pumpkin image the best because your child draws the jack-o-lantern face himself. Although, the scientist is nice too because he’s so spooky that whatever your color-challenged toddler does will look good.
Sure, we’re a few weeks away from Halloween, so print and stow the sheets or bookmark ‘em… unless you’re hardcore. I know two families who have already obtained their Halloween costumes.
Buz would laugh at the notion, but in an alternate universe he is a father or a teacher and his spare time hobby is illustrating children’s books. (He experimented with a number of drawings for Thingamababy’s title graphic; he has quite a style range.)
If you have a favorite resource for print-your-own coloring pages, share it in a comment below.
