As an artist, sometimes I like to tap into my childhood and pull out a good ole adult coloring book. I love taking someone else’s design and adding my own flare to it. With coloring books, you have the ability to color something you yourself may not have been able to create. There are many types of adult coloring books out there and different designs. I have found some to be expensive and not provide enough pages. I love this coloring book because it has a lot of designs, 48 unique pages to be exact.
