Chris Arnold, the award-winning Chicago-based artist and author of Agate’s first foray into adult coloring books, The Chicago Coloring Book, was recently interviewed by the Chicago Sun-Times. He spoke about his creative process when making something so unique, and the adult coloring book phenomenon as a whole. The article went on to interview others who use the books, whether for therapeutic and meditative purposes, or just to have some fun. One of the most interesting things that we at Agate have noticed about these adult coloring books is the warm online community that users have created by posting their finished drawings online and sharing tips about new materials and coloring techniques. We would love to see the drawings that people create with their copies of The Chicago Coloring Book and urge anyone who wants to share their work online to tag it with #ChicagoColoringBook so that it’s easy to find!
