Outside the Lines Too  is a hip and imaginative coloring book featuring original line drawings from more than 100 creative masterminds, including animators, cartoonists, fine artists, graphic artists, illustrators, musicians, outsider artists, photographers, and street artists. Perforated pages throughout make it easier to share and display your work. With most pages commissioned especially for this book, this collection features the work of DalekTimothy TompkinsRyan Humphrey, Richard Colman, Maria E. Piñeres, David Ellis, Jim Houser, Justina Blakeney, Kevin Lyons, Rainer Judd, Tim Biskup, and more

Outside the Lines, Too was a gift of sorts from the publisher after the coloring book I initially requested was back-ordered, so while I waited they sent me this one to make up for it. It’s certainly different from the order and fine lines of Time Garden and most other super popular adult coloring books, and I really love the variety and mix it presents.

Outside the Lines, Too is a compilation of over 100 artists from all backgrounds and thus has a huge variety of images to chose from. I really love that there was everything from super simple drawings like coloring books of my childhood and super detailed pieces that speak more of creative freedom than actual order. There is even a connect the dot that looks like it was shot full of steroids and I haven’t yet decided to brave it, even though I really want to.

It’s definitely a coloring book with something in it for everyone, and because of that I think it would make for a great family coloring book. And it’s definitely good for those who like variety in their pictures like me. I really do enjoy the super detail order of the popular coloring books, but sometimes I really just want to open up a page of alien lion and not worry about what color he needs to be.

Overall I think this is the perfect little jumble of art. It’s a lot of fun to look through and  even more fun to put color to the different art styles.

4 stars

  1. I think I’m going to have to get this, Kate! Sometimes, I want to have a purple animal and orange people… which looks kind of weird in the conventional coloring books 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    I only have adult coloring postcards, and I think they just shrank down the original coloring book images, which makes everything SUPER tiny and hard to color in. I’d love to have an actual book. The image of the woman with the flowing hair reminds me of the Sourcebooks Anne of Green Gables cover, though!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it, leave a comment and tell me what you think.
