Coloring Stress and Depression Away with Adult Coloring Books: How to Color Adult Coloring Books Like a Maestro to Overcome Depression, Anxiety, and Stress
Like a lot of people, I grew up stressed and depressed, barely hanging on to my sanity as I entered the working world. And I heard all the same clichés about how to unwind and enjoy life from “well meaning” people. Be grateful. Be kind. Be mindful. But I'd grown up with a cellphone, and anytime I wasn't doing SOMETHING, I felt like I was wasting time. Coloring books were a massive help. I learned that mindfulness and meditation wasn't about staring quietly into space for 15 minutes and trying not to fidget. It was about getting a clear head and living in the now. The only problem is that I was walking around the college campus with a coloring book – which was NOT helping my popularity.But years later, everybody's learning what I learned back then… if I could clear my mind with a coloring book, I could do it outdoors, I could do it while surfing, I could do it with my family… You know, unless the kids are being REALLY loud that day.Coloring books, as inexpensive as they are, were the number one tool for giving me peace of mind in my life.And as I get a little older, I find myself going back to them over and over.Can I tell you a few things you might not know about coloring?
- You can color practically anything. Contrary to popular believe, you don't have to spend the day coloring in flowers and swirls and flowers and swirls and MORE flowers and MORE swirls. There's tons of variety from pop culture to modern art to sci-fi to amazing landscapes – anything you can imagine.
- You can get REALLY GOOD at this. Nobody wants to make the kind of stuff they made in grade school. I'll show you how to use simple texture and detail to make cool, eyepopping work.
- You can learn about art. I wan't really an artistic person, but the more I colored, the more I learned about layering, countour hatching, blending, the more I understood how art worked and could tell "good" stuff from bad stuff.
- It just feels good. Inside, you're going to learn how therapeutic this is – a tool to push away negativity, stress, and anxiety.

From former SNL "Weekend Update" host and legendary stand-up Colin Quinn comes a controversial and laugh-out-loud investigation into cultural and ethnic stereotypes.Colin Quinn has noticed a trend during his decades on the road-that Americans' increasing political correctness and sensitivity have forced us to tiptoe around the subjects of race and ethnicity altogether. Colin wants to know: What are we all so afraid of? Every ethnic group has differences, everyone brings something different to the table, and this diversity should be celebrated, not denied. So why has acknowledging these cultural differences become so taboo? In THE COLORING BOOK, Colin, a native New Yorker, tackles this issue head-on while taking us on a trip through the insane melting pot of 1970s Brooklyn, the many, many dive bars of 1980s Manhattan, the comedy scene of the 1990s, and post-9/11 America. He mixes his incredibly candid and hilarious personal experiences with no-holds-barred observations to definitively decide, at least in his own mind, which stereotypes are funny, which stereotypes are based on truths, which have become totally distorted over time, and which are actually offensive to each group, and why. As it pokes holes in the tapestry of fear that has overtaken discussions about race, THE COLORING BOOK serves as an antidote to our paralysis when it comes to laughing at ourselves . . . and others.

In early 2015 adult coloring books made a sudden and dramatic jump to the top of Amazon's best seller's list and they have stayed there, earning hundreds of thousands of dollars for both the artists and publishers. This success started a gold rush in the creation of new coloring books, in no small part aided by Amazon's CreateSpace publishing on demand program. Unlike traditional book printers, CreateSpace allows artists and independent authors to publish books without fear of rejection, editorial control, or, most importantly, upfront costs.This book is not for beginners who do not have any experience with computers or art. It is not a step by step guide where I hold your hand throughout the entire process. However, if you have a body of work, or are in the idea stage, and you would like to make a coloring book through CreateSpace, then you can use this book to learn best practices and avoid common pitfalls when creating a coloring book on CreateSpace.
