Read Me (or colour me): Indie Rock Colouring Book

Have you met The Yellow Bird Project?

Yellow Bird are a Montreal based not-for-profit aiming to raise funds and awareness for a range of different charities whilst raising the profile of their own favourite artists. Founded in 2006, Casey and Matt came together as bright eyed university grads yearning to make a different. Now, on the road to bring about a new world order of indie philanthropy, Casey and Matt seek out only the coolest of cool artists, collaborate with them to design awesome tee-shirts, and donate all profits to the charity of the artists’ choice.

A Yellow Bird side project from tee-shirts is something I personally find pretty darn cool, the Indie Rock Colouring Book. Created by Illustrator Andy J. Miller, you are invited to interact in a journey of creativity and colour the 60's style drawings actually designed bands including the likes of MGMT, Block Party, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Shins, TV on the Radio, Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah, Bon Iver and The National.

You can buy the colouring book online here. I want one, and some Texta Zooms please!

Not to detract from the super cool designed-by-bands printed tees Yellow Bird are producing, I though I should also mention I want this hoodie... Mmm it will keep me warm during a long London winter.
