The Velvet Woofers: A Bark & Roll Coloring Adventure with Musical Puppies

My first published coloring book

I’ve been telling myself for years that I wanted to try my hand a producing a coloring book.

I finally buckled down and watched dozens of YouTube turtorials on how to produce a coloring book in just 30 minutes and make thousands a month with passive income.

I had an original idea and I didn’t want to just cut and paste the same clip-art that I continually see in other coloring books, so it took me a lot longer than 30 minutes to produce this book.

I’m quite detailed oriented (anal, some may say), and I put a lot of work into it. It actually took me a few weeks to go from concept to published. I started with creating the images, and then recreating them all in black and white. That was quite a learning curve for me. Then I had to organize them, figure out correct page size and how to put them into a properly formatted PDF, design and build a cover, write a description, and finally, submit to Amazon KDP. Yup, a couple weeks — not 30 minutes.

Though, I think I have the system down now and the next one should not take as long — fingers crossed.

Thousands a month in passive income? That still remains to be seen. But fingers, toes, legs, and arms crossed on that dream.

Oh, I’ve also been working on turning The Velvet Woofers into NFTs. You can view and purchase them on OpenSea…

T-shirts, merchandise and hopefully a fun music video coming soon, but that last part is on a back burner, a way back burner, at least for the moment.

Who are The Velvet Woofers? A five-pup band that plays Bark & Roll.

They’re a group of pop-art cartoon dogs who aren’t just creating music — they’re crafting an unforgettable experience that’s as vibrant as their colorful dreadlocks and mohawks, and as captivating as their tinted sunglasses.

Draped in individuality, each member of the band brings their unique style to the stage with pop-art fashion, and a visual spectacle that mirrors their explosive music.
