If You Can Be Anything Be Kind Coloring Page
Being kind is the coolest!
I originally published this post over 5 years ago and my artwork has come a long way in five years, so I just re-did the coloring page and updated this post with fresh content. 🙂
A lot of people ask about my favorite coloring supplies, so here’s what I usually use:
- Colored Pencils: Tombow 1500 Colored Pencils are my go-to colored pencils.
- Waterbased Markers: Tombow Dual Tips are the Bomb for both coloring and lettering.
- Alcohol-Based Markers: The new Tombow ABT Pro Alcohol-Based Markers are dreamy for blending and layering without paper piling, and they dry super fast!
- Gel Pens: Sakura Gelly Roll Pens are a staple for adding details over marker or colored pencils!
- Cardstock Paper: Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. This one is perfect for use with markers!
- Copy Paper: HP Premium32 is a fabulous copy paper. I use it for all my printing, and it’s gentle on brush pens too.
- Get creative! Try printing on Kraft Paper and using colored pencils for an extra fun look (as shown below).
- The download is in PDF format.
- If you find parts of the page get cut off when you print, be sure to set your printer scaling to “Fit to Page” when printing.
- The printer I currently use is the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281cdw. I snagged it at Costco for a great price. I’ve had it over a year, and it’s my favorite printer I’ve ever had.

Want to learn Brush Calligraphy?
Here’s the best way to get started.
- Purchase a small-tipped brush pen. It’s easiest for beginners to learn with and I strongly recommend the Tombow Fudenosuke pen. It comes in a hard and soft tip. Both are flexible for brush calligraphy to varying degrees and I recommend the combo pack to see what you prefer. I get mine on Amazon.
- For iPad, the DND Basic Brush from this set is the one that works fabulously for all my worksheets.
- The recommended paper is HP Premium32 copy paper is affordable yet super smooth making it ideal for brush calligraphy practice.
You’ll want to get basic drills/strokes down to learn to use pressure to control your stroke width before moving into letters/words.
