A coloring book inspired by old puzzle games
Did you play puzzle mazes when you were a kid?
I used to love them.
Even before I worked out the solving aspect, I loved just taking them in. I was fascinated by the sight of so many lines converging in on each other and seeming to tangle up like abnormally disciplined spaghetti.
Plus, of course, once solved, it was fun to take some color to the whole thing. Giving the ‘Yellow Brick Road’ treatment to the solved path. Making the odd segment into a little green hedge, just because. And taking red to the side paths that seemed to have the most menacing shapes; that was certainly a blast.
Being silly sure is fun, isn’t it? At any age. 😊
The hypnotic charm of geometric stress relief
Okay, so that was cute and all, but let’s be real. I don’t decompress solving mazes these days, and I doubt you do either. I don’t seek out those kinds of puzzles, haven’t solved one in literal years, and doubt they’d interest me at all beyond literally appreciating the lines and angles.
I don’t know when they lose their shine, precisely, but they do. I guess they were firmly a childhood thing, for me. Maybe that’s true for you, as well?
Coloring, on the other hand? Still a surefire way to relax and unwind and meditate… And still one of the best ways to be at once creative and soothed.
Half-formed memories strung by very straight lines
Now, for continuity purposes, I wish I could tell you that I was thinking of my childhood and had a particularly focused bout of nostalgia to help me out with these designs.
I mean, I could tell you that. I could even make up an intricately crafted story to go with it. All pastel memories and bittersweet feelings, with possibly a clever drop of subtext about not needing to recapture anything, because if we look deep down enough we’ll see never really lost our youth.
I’m almost certain it would be a great read. But it just wouldn’t be legit, you know?
The creative process: a bigger jumble than these coloring designs
Instead, the way it went was pretty much the opposite.
I started concocting designs. Exploring what I was doing with them… And before I knew it, they took me on a trip down memory lane. A shapeless, tangled, barely half-formed trip, but one no less lovely.
A trip that — no matter how many other designs I make, and no matter how many coloring books to go with them — will probably forever give this coloring book a special place in my heart.
Gosh, nostalgia is its own superpower sometimes, isn’t it?
The promise of this intricate geometry coloring book
Because there is at least one promise.
Now, I can’t, of course, promise to take you down the same rabbit hole of memory that I took myself. My own trip was inadvertent enough already. But if you do feel that sweet nostalgic spark? I’ll be glad for you and the tingly feelings it will call forth.
I also can’t promise that you’ll dive into these coloring pages with the same relish that I felt while creating them. Though if it’s even half that? I’ll again be glad.
So what can I promise?
I can promise you this. Each one of the designs in this book will delight your creativity and your imagination. More than that, they’ll make you take delight in your creativity and your imagination alike.
They’ll get you to unwind. They’ll make you lose track of your stresses and your worries. They’ll silence any nagging inner voices or stray niggling thoughts.
Instead, they will let you just breathe and be.
