I love to color. It's a creative outlet but most of the creativity has already been carried by someone else - the artist.  I get to make their creation come to life.  Also, it supports my habit of office supply buying so there's that...

I like to describe my problem solving method as percolating.  I take in all the information then I let my brain 'drip' like an old percolating coffee maker.  For this to work properly, I need to disengage from the original problem.  Lots of time, I can move on to another project.  But sometimes I need to find a solution sooner.  This is when you can find me coloring at my desk at work. 

I'm not a big fan of the adult coloring books.  Generally speaking, the designs are too intricate.  Take this Harry Potter picture for example.  All that foliage was a beast to color.  But it turned out beautiful.

My Nick Splat coloring book is a nice mix.  There are some intricate pictures but there are some easier than others.  I love this one of Arnold and Gerald.

Lately, I've been loving a website called Rad & Happy.  The artist, Tara, creates awesome coloring pages that are so cute and easy to color.  I've printed some of her pages but I haven't colored any yet but I'm looking forward to it. 

What do you do to relax or think?
