Browsing Tinder can be a bit of a minefield: “Ooh great beard, damn it! He’s got a picture of a tiger” or “Hey, she’s cute! Oh yuck, bad tattoos.” Here, to validate the highs and lows of swiping left and right, there’s “Color a Lover,” a Tinder-themed adult activity book with coloring pages to de-stress your despised digital mind. love.
“Colour a Lover” was illustrated by Australian artist Adam Seymour, who noticed an interesting parallel between Tindering and coloring as a leisure activity. He told the Huffington Post:
“Adult coloring books have become very fashionable, especially with the emergence of research showing their therapeutic qualities. It’s also a fun way to disconnect…similar to the hours we spend online searching love. I thought that was an interesting parallel. Rather than doing another art exhibit, I wanted to introduce an interactive element to my work, while putting a new spin on the coloring book trend. The activity book also has the hashtag #ColourALover so people can upload snaps of their colorful creations in response to my work. I can’t wait to see what people do.
The coloring pages come with cute activities like “choose the terrible tattoo for that beautiful body”, “find the hidden pizza slices in this messy brother’s room” and, definitely an instant classic, “solve the maze beard of this hipster”. Check out some of the activities available in the book below and purchase your own copy of “Colour a Lover” here.
