For every colouring book purchased, we donate a book to a local children's charity
Tara is from Belfast in N. Ireland where she wrote and illustrated the original Buddy the Dog Colouring Book in Christmas of 2014, as a Secret Santa present for her sister Erin (Buddy’s official girlfriend). A follow up present, Buddy the Dog Goes to University, was written and illustrated in 2019.
Tara is an art student in her final year at Edinburgh College of Art. She can often be found fawning over pictures of Buddy, making her flatmates a chicken dinner, or creating in her art studio.
During the pandemic, Tara started to paint her friend's pets and has since expanded this, painting more adorable doggos, puppies, cats, kittens and even fishies than she ever imagined! You can check out her work on Instagram, at @taramcc_art
Tara & the whole family thought it would be fun to publish Buddy the Dog books for kids to enjoy, colour in, and to spread the one-of-a-kind Buddy Tucker Meatball love!
We would love to see all of your gorgeous colouring in, so send them on over to us at @buddythedog_colouringbook and we will post them all! Don't forget to put your name, age and city on your artwork.
