Coloring books for adults hit a nerve on Product Hunt yesterday.
Colorables, a collection of printable coloring pages, launched from Maker Mackenzie Child and claimed the #1 Product of the Day spot.
“A while back I had a few people reach out and ask if they could get an outlined version of my illustrations after I shared them on Instagram and Twitter because they wanted to color them in. I thought that was a pretty great idea, and found it pretty rewarding watching people having fun with my art.” - Mackenzie
The idea is to “escape from the craziness of our normal day to day lives” by focusing on a fun, analog task...or to give the pages to your children.
The project is a refreshing launch in the sake of creativity — the pages are all free to download and no email is required. Sometimes you just need to feel like a kid again.
