Since the launch of her first publication in 2013, earning her the title of New York Times bestselling author, LA-based art enthusiast Souris Hong has been busy rallying yet another stellar line-up of creative masterminds for the sequel of her celebrated colouring book Outside The Lines (October 2013).
Dig out your crayons and markers again – though shame on you for ever putting them away – because Outside The Lines, Too drops with over 100 fresh line drawings commissioned by international contemporary talent, ranging from artists, graphic designers and illustrators to photographers, street artists and filmmakers. CLAW MONEY, devngosha, Jack Black, Kevin Lyons, Charles and Ray Eames, POKETO and ThankYouX are a handful of innovative new contributors that make up the diverse scope of styles and context in this alternative colouring book.
These Are the Ways We Stay Connected (detail) - Seonna Hong
Whether it's Dalek’s optical lines or the playful doodles of NIARK1, there is something for everyone and anyone with a mission to rid all 256 pages from its monochrome state. Evolving from the original title, the latest publication now features individually perforated pages for when you want to exhibit your very own unique artwork collaboration - not to mention useful for those times when kids of all ages just don’t want to share.
MANY - Ryan Seslow
Young and old(er) will unite over this uber hip paperback bursting with potential technicolour and conceptual imagination as well as thrive on an unconscious education in the exploration of art and design from emerging and established artists from around the world – a critical ingredient to Hong’s success to date and vision for the accessibility of contemporary art beyond conventional audiences to a greater, more unassuming readership.
Ollie & Grind, Part 3 - Leonardo Bravo
Outside The Lines Too will mark a West coast book launch at MOCA Los Angeles this weekend, Saturday 3 rd October at 3pm – visit MOCA Stores for full details.
