Alfred Ryals Sr., who was also known as James B. Badhouse, completed his new book “African Masked Theme Coloring Book" before passing away in 2015: a spectacular collection of African masks that will spark the creativity of children of all ages.

Ryals, Sr., wrote, “I am an Artist living in Los Angeles, working with pictures depicting African tribal mask. I hope these attractive figures give you as much enjoyment as coloring them while you the artist bring these pictures to life, all while learning the color wheel. The coloring wheel found in this book is an educational tool that would enable children and adult alike to learn the art of coloring. My hope is to give us something to keep our kids involved in art. Not only will children learn from this coloring book but adults will also. While using the arrangement of the color wheel, I guarantee your coloring skills will be enhanced, learn the use of different color schemes and become more creative coloring the picture in this book.”
