This recently launched subscription service delivers a new, off-the-wall coloring book for “creative kiddos,” each illustrated by a different artist, once a month. I got a sample of the first issue, by artist Jim Stoten, and it’s delightful; twenty-eight pages of idiosyncratic, Chwast-like drawings in a scrappy, saddle-stitched, zine-like format (though to be fair, it’s much nicer than just a photocopied, D.I.Y. publication). Back issues are available for US$10 but subscriptions are only US$7 per issue; you have one more day to grab the current issue, by artist Scott Teplin before the next one ships—though in honesty Teplin’s work is so unorthodox that it makes me wonder if these are really for children or adults. Nevertheless, it’s a great project.
