Socially-Conscious White Ladies Coloring and Activity Book
A satirical coloring book for grown-ups poking fun at the current trend of hashtag activism.
Socially-Conscious White Ladies Coloring and Activity Book pokes fun at the current trend of "hashtag activism." The book features portraits of sexy White Ladies giving empty lip service to some of today's major social issues.
Similar in style and tone to my previous work The 2016 Republican Presidential Candidates Coloring and Activity Book, Socially-Conscious White Ladies also includes satirical drawings of supposedly "progressive" white female celebrities, plus funny and informative activities (like you'd find in a children's activity book). And yes, some of the art will have a bit of nudity and mild sexuality. This is a coloring book for Grown-Ups.
Why I'm Doing This
I created these books because adult coloring books are an accessible, non-threatening way to poke fun at American culture. America is a wonderfully diverse country with a wide variety of identities and communities. Although we may have disagreements over the direction of the country, I very much believe in the USA's ability to be a force for positive change for all its citizens and throughout in the world.
I also believe that positive change starts from within and the first step on that path is honesty about the problems we face. These coloring books are intended to point out what I see as problems that need to be addressed. I'm not telling anyone what to do. I'm simply offering my perspective and opinions on where we are as country and I'm doing it with a healthy dose of humor.
My goal is to print and ship Socially-Conscious White Ladies by the end of November 2017.

Risks and challenges
I've been slowly working on Socially-Conscious White Ladies for the last year. As of this writing I've completed roughly 50% of the total artwork.
This will be a busy summer for me. I'm attending several conventions, moving to a new apartment and drawing short stories for multiple publishers. However I'm confident that I can complete, print and ship Socially-Conscious White Ladies by the end of November 2017.
I've been publishing my own work for nearly 20 years. I do all the artwork, graphics and book design myself. I know what I'm doing :DLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
