Each year the International Day of Peace, an annual day of non-violence and cease-fire, is observed around the world today, September 21. The first Peace Day was observed over 30 years ago, in 1982. Artist Brett Bender, who created “The Coloring Book for the Super Intelligent”, has taken a page from his own book, Color4Peace, to get folks creating. He asked me to participate, so I’m including my take here (with added numbers and color instructions). Others have embellished, embroidered, puzzled, and “redrawn” it in wire;
“…no one sees the image the same. Even the same people go back and color the page differently – celebrate the difference and approach from different perspectives and solve them creatively. All good. No bad. Inspired because most coloring books keep everyone playing inside the lines. My hope is to get everyone stretching and outside the lines.”
You can color your own and contact Brett via Facebook, here. Peace.
