Hi Everyone:

I'm reaching out to this community to see if I can get some help.

In April 2015, Arizona will be celebrating Water Month. Here in Phoenix, we are planning a whole host of activities for both adults and kids. One of the activities we thought of for kids was having some coloring pages on water harvesting topics (rainwater, greywater, stormwater, etc.) I immediately thought of the line drawings in Brad Lancaster's books on Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Vols. 1 and 2. These drawings are already created (stacking functions!!) and I've been in contact with Brad's assistant who says to provider her with a list and send it to her to get Brad's approval.

What I need from you: If you have these books, could you spare a few minutes to look through them and see which of the drawings might be appropriate as kids coloring pages. Then could you note the VOLUME, PAGE NUMBER and DRAWING NUMBER in this thread. I'd love to get these back by Monday, Jan 26th (2015) if possible.

I would be most grateful for this help!

He also has some images online like:



There are also drawings by other people online that might be good as well, like:

Volume one seems to have the most suitable images. I'll go through volume two later, but these seem to me to be the most appropriate from volume one.

Volume One

fig 1.1b, p4 This is the second one in your post
fig 1.4b, p8
fig 1.5b, p10
fig 1.8b, p15 This is the first one in your post
fig 1.11b, p18
fig 1.17, p35
fig 3.4, p59
fig 3.20, p67
fig 3.28, p71

Volume 2

P5, P6 - page 4
P9 -page 6
Fig 1.4 - page 17
Fig 1.14B - page 52
Fig 2.23 - page 79
Figure 5.5 - page 123
Fig 8.33 - page 199
Fig 9.3 - page 206
Fig 11.20 - p 278
Fig 11.23A - p 281

Do you need these images? I can blow them up to 8 1/2 x 11 if you'd like. Obviously they get a bit fuzzy but for kids with coloured pencils/crayons that's probably not an issue. I've attached a cut and paste from the book and the same pix blown up with a bit of clean up.

Hi Mike and thanks for taking a look through vol 2 for me. I definitely want to get Brad's approval to use these - he consults for the group I volunteer with - and he probably has higher resolution versions we can scale up. We will also need to source him and his book at the bottom of the images.

If he does NOT have higher resolution images, I will definitely take you up on blowing them up!

If a coloring book has ever been made of this I'd be interested. Links?
