This is a coloring book with sketches from the gorgeously illustrated book Vaesen. It lets you see what the pencil drawings of the artist Johan Egerkrans look like before they’re turned into color illustrations. You can also have a go at coloring them yourself, using whatever medium you feel comfortable with. If your goal is to copy the style of the original book, then the artist recommends
watercolors or gouache. If you’re after something different, try markers,
crayons, pastels or something else entirely.

Johan Egerkrans’ collection of creatures from the Scandinavian folklore has become a crossover phenomenon. The dark forests, deep lakes and vast mountain ranges of Scandinavia are home to a multitude of supernatural beings. They are known as the little people, the invisibles, or simply the fair folk. When someone vanishes in the woods, when the milk curdles over night, when strange noises are heard in the loft or when an unexplained ailment strikes, it is said to be the work of such entities. 

Some of these creatures appear all over Europe: ghosts, giants, dragons, trolls, werewolves and faeries. Others are endemic to Scandinavia, such as the Neck who rules the rivers, the nightly Mara, the Huldra who guards the forest, tomtar, mylings and many others.
