On the ninth day of Holiday, my LA friend gave to me… The SubPrime Mortgage Crisis Bailout Coloring Book.
Who Would This Be Great For? The young, contemporary art aware Angeleno with a sense of humor, who Outside The Lines was a bit too obvious a gift for.
Who Is Giving This Gift? For the contemporary art watcher who wants to give local art at an affordable price.
Why This Gift? From local gallery lampooner LG Williams is a two hundred seven paged “advice and self-help” coloring book. What about? The mortgage crisis! Both straightforward commentary on American economic issues and yet another funny take on how artists handle these big issues, the coloring book is series of numbers meant to introduce American kids to “the unprecedented burden imposed on them and generations to come.” How fabulous is this? It is not only educational but it is artistic—and brilliant.
Where Can You Get It? The coloring book is available online here and is retailing for $29.95.
