Coloring Books are so Passé

So this is what a well known author told me about my, back then, business coloring book, “adult coloring books are passé and will never fly. That did not stop me from doing it anyway. Three months after that statement I released my first coloring book based upon a business book called “Coloring the Experience Economy”.

Today, I read this.. https://www.forbes.com/sites/stephanrabimov/2019/11/20/artist-max-goshko-dankov-unveils-the-great-coloring-wall-in-beijing/#73f5f5be7e84 about another coloring book adaptation that is gaining popularity.

There is so much potential with guided illustrations and the use of coloring pages that I have already been approached by three other authors to create companion coloring books for their work. The idea of having one’s ideas visualized is a powerful mechanism for conveying ideas. Who knows where this new genre of coloring books will go, I just hope it last a long time.
