ex1 You probably know by now that the Internet basically consists of DIY ideas and pictures of cats. However, if there’s anything to be learned from sites such as “Pinterest Fails,” it’s that not all DIY enthusiasts are created equal. So what do you do when you’re inspired to flex your creative muscles, but lack the basic skills to do so? Reach for your coloring book. That’s right, adult coloring books are officially a thing. Sure, it might sound immature, but who doesn’t miss the childhood bliss of working your way through a coloring book? And this isn’t just any coloring book filled with boring winter scenes or Disney princesses. This awesome product is called “Dogs: a coloring book,” and was created by a pair of Toronto-based graphic designers (Amanda Lo and Charline Wang) known as Team Art.
