Pusheen Coloring Book Review

You have seen kids spending hours and hours on the floors, filling their coloring books with all the weird and unrealistic ways that have no connection to reality whatsoever. But, that is the point in coloring! You can just forget reality and embrace art and formalism.

This is an ever expanding realm of utterly fantastical creatures and psychedelic patterns and scenarios. You might have wondered that, that is something that only the little kids find fascinating, but in complete contradiction, it is actually the adults who explore the wildest sides of their grown imaginations.

Imagine dragons, aliens, animals, artistic creatures from completely parallel dimensions than our own. Well those are the pieces that are most sought after in this adult doodling community.

And there’s a reason why these coloring books become more of a passion in so many adults. It’s their ability to completely distress you, increase your imagination and help you relax, kick back and let the child in you run free.

One of these successful coloring books for adults is the new ‘Pusheen Coloring Book’ by Claire Belton. Now you do not live under a rock.

Features

Pusheen’s success can easily be attributed to the psychological phenomenal of empathetic lethargy. Because of our stressful and immensely busy lifestyles, most of us suffer from lack of energy and motivation to do things.
