Realities of Adulthood Hilariously Translated into "Coloring for Grown-Ups" Activity Book

Coloring books for adults are a fantastic way to relieve stress and escape the pressures of day-to-day life. But sometimes, you don't want to forget–you want to commiserate on how hard it can be. With this in mind, Comedians Ryan Hunter and Taige Jensen have cleverly combined the pleasant experience of coloring with the terrifying realities of adulthood in their hilarious book called Coloring for Grown-Ups.

Geared towards a mature audience, the activity book's blank pages highlight scenarios that many adults are familiar with: social injustices; the horrors of dating; childhood dreams that were never realized; and the aftermath of partying too hard. The bold drawings are presented in an amusingly sarcastic tone, and they offer their own form of therapy by reminding us that we aren't alone in figuring out how to navigate adulthood.
