5 Adult Coloring Books For Those New to the Phenomenon – Everup

Looking for a way to experience some calm and peace during some challenging times, I turned to an old friend, the coloring book. Growing up an only child, you gotta find some things to keep you busy. Coloring and comics, two of my go-to things.

I remember having coloring contests to see who could do the best picture. This was when you had to have quarters to play “video games”.  The hours and number of books colored as a child can be incredible. Even if a child chooses to do something other than to be the next  Crayola Picasso, we all touch the cray at some point in our lives

I forged some of my longest friendships across a dining room table with a 32 box laid out between us. When else did you learn to hang with somebody else and just be ok being there and not have to or need to say something?? I should start coloring with my wife. (Hmmm….)

Coloring is making a comeback and it is for the discerning individual(s).  Pick up a book, crayons, pencils, markers, whatever you color best with and turn back the clock to a simpler time when it was all about the color.

For the past week, I have been enjoying a trip back to my favorite childhood event – Coloring. I used to sit on the porch, floor, or at the kitchen table with several coloring books and a 64 box of Crayola crayons. You had to drag me away from them.

Being an only child growing up, there was quite a bit of alone time to fill. Aside from my Atari 2600, and comic books, coloring was the best way to past the time. Now in 2015, coloring is back and adults everywhere are picking up new books, designed just for adults; with colored pencils, markers and crayons and skipping down memory lane.

Relaxing and stimulating at the same time, there is nothing like some smooth jazz or R&B with a coloring book to ease the tensions of a busy day. So tonite, why not grab a book, put the kids to bed and express yourself with some color.
