Johanna Basford, a pen-and-ink artist from Scotland, has done work for H&M, Hallmark and Crabtree & Evelyn to name a few. Her newest inky handiwork is in the form of a coloring book for grown-ups entitled Lost Ocean. The hand-drawn pages show a world beneath the waves. Lost Ocean is filled with intricate black-and-white images of starfish, coral, shells, flowers, mermaids and of course, lots of fish, just waiting for a splash of color.
