Gallery: Outside the Lines Too, more adult coloring brilliance
Souris "Hustler of Culture" Hong has followed up on her amazing 2013 coloring book Outside the Lines with a second edition: Outside the Lines Too.
Both books feature fantastic and inspiring designs by brilliant artists for you to color in and complete. Adult coloring books are not only a thing, they're a wonderful thing -- a combination of meditation and self-expression that is delighting more and more people.
Souris was kind enough to pass along some of her favorite designs from the book, along with these notes on its genesis and philosophy:
My daughter Lulu inspired Outside the Lines and Outside the Lines, Too. While she has dozens of coloring books from all over the world, she had a thing for coloring the works of Keith Haring, Moebius and Andy Warhol. Lulu was inclined to color art by professional artists. So I conceptualized a coloring book filled with line drawings by our friends. The creative cabal consisted of filmmakers, painters, illustrators, musicians, video game artists, photographers, comics artists, and so much more.
I hope that anyone who purchases Outside the Lines, Too will learn more about the creators of these inspired works. Behind every page, a reader will find the name of the artist, the title of the artwork, and their website.
I wish for coloring book fanatics to become art enthusiasts.

For all their amazing growth over the past 25 years, the most impressive thing about the monumental rise of Amazon might be the speed and sophistication of their lightning-fast delivery network.

You could actually watch a Tyrannosaurus Rex walk down your street right now. And no, this isn’t the latest Jurassic Park sequel. Of course, it isn’t real either, just a Google recreation of some pretty realistic looking dinosaurs transplanted right into any environment around you courtesy of augmented reality. Yet it’s just another example of […]
