outside the lines, too: an all-ages coloring book by creative masterminds + giveaway

OUTSIDE THE LINES, TOO Cover_2015_Souris HongOutside the Lines, Too curated by Souris Hong, an inspired and inventive coloring book by creative masterminds (2015).


This sequel to Outside the Lines features many more line drawings waiting to be filled in by YOU (or yours). It features over 100 contributors, from illustrators to animators, sculptors to street artists. And the sheets are perforated so you can tear out your colored-in page and give it away or hang it up! I love that.





It’s billed as a coloring book for adults, but I think the beauty of it is that the crayon and colored-pencil clad of any age would enjoy this while being exposed to awesome contemporary artists and artwork.

    I love coloring books for older people! 🙂 I was going to buy this mandala coloring book the other day, but it almost made me dizzy. This looks like a much better fit. That man riding on top of that small bear is the best! Heehee!!
