A Coloring Book For Adults?

I’ve got to be honest. I love building Legos. I buy my son Legos just so I can “help” him build them. I have a Lego-sized hole in my brain that only those little Legos can fill.

I don’t care that I’m 39 years old. I’m unrepentant about my love for Legos.

That’s why I love my friend Jennifer’s most recent project. She illustrated an “expert-level coloring adventure” called Flying Colors that allows you to tap into that long-forgotten segment of your brain that loves to just sit down at the kitchen table with a coloring book and color.

I guess you’d call it a coloring book for adults, though I’m sure anyone who loves to color could give these illustrations a go.

I don’t know what else to say other than it’s a creative, super cool idea. Who doesn’t need a little “art therapy” every now and then?

Here’s a sample page:

You can order Jennifer’s book on her website or on Amazon. 

How cool is this project?

  2. Colouring books like this have become very popular in Britain too. However, I prefer my anatomy colouring book.

    I really love these colouring books for adults too! I had a colouring book where one could colour the most famous Van Gogh paintings. I barely had time unfortunately so I decided to give it away to someone who would use it more, but I did a few and it was really fun. It was indeed good “art therapy”.

  6. I love to play Lego and colour. Unfortunately, my kids are starting to out-grow both. Enjoy it while you can! 🙂

  9. That’s fantastic. As an artist, I love painting and colouring, and in fact am putting the finishing touches on a coloring book I’ve illustrated and produced myself called “The Creative Zone”. It should be out in 2-3 weeks!

    I find it interesting in reading through the comments today that many of the commenters appear to be from outside of the US (colour vs. color). This is a great idea though, I love colouring as well.

  12. My husband loves Legos, too. I think things like this — building mini houses out of kits of little bricks, or coloring in fancy line drawings — tap into a need that a lot of adults have to do/make something creative without a whole lot of brainpower or energy. We spend so much time and effort at work for 8-10 hours a day, and when we get home we have an itch to do something artsy/craftsy but not a whole lot of energy left over for it. For some people, anyway.

  17. Adult coloring books are all over the place right now; I just won one from GR and am eagerly awaiting its arrival. Therapists say it is very soothing, and I definitely agree. When I taught middle school geography I had them color maps of the places we studied. I had all sorts of rules, and they still loved it. Just one class period to relax, chat quietly and do something repetitive. It was good for their souls.

  21. I am now inspired to buy a coloring book! I was honestly just thinking about buying one last weekend – I went as far as downloading that ‘coloring app’ but it’s nowhere as near as the real thing. Thanks for this inspiration! Thanks to your friend Jennifer too!

  22. Hell yeah adult coloring books are IN. I just like to doodle the zentangles myself but I’m tempted to get one of the coloring books because I recently bought a pack of scented color pencils.
