The Story

DRAWING IS MY MEDITATION, LET COLOURING BE YOURS!

To channel my bursting creativity, re-awakened by motherhood, I came up with the ground-breaking idea of creating a colouringpages for grown-ups. A couple of months after launching this website I noticed I wasn’t alone with the briljant thought. As the adult colouring trend started taking over the world, Black White Mustard was one of the pioneers in the Nordics. I was invited to do radio and magazine interviews in Finnish media and my illustrations were featured in publications.

DREAMS COME TRUE

@blackwhitemustard gained popularity in social media and one day the magic happened, I was contacted by the Swedish publisher Pagina Förlag who proposed creating  my own colouring book for their brand Printworks. It was my dream come true and the start of a wonderful and rewarding creative experience.  The result is the unique hand-drawn urban mandala colouring book Min mandala (Swedish for My Mandala), which is now available in shops and online.  For more info go to Min mandala.

DON’T BE A STRANGER

I love getting feedback on the books and look forward to seeing your coloured masterpieces. Please use the tags #minmandala and #blackwhitemustard or message me on Facebook or Instagram to share with others on our colouring community page.

Let my mandala be your mandala.

Yours in monochrome,
Maria Ljungeld
