The adult coloring book craze couldn’t have come at a better time: it’s a great escape from the scourge that is adulthood at this particular moment in time. Diving into a box of Crayolas is a total sanity-saver. But true distraction needs to be a little more engaging than our kiddos’ Anna and Olaf coloring pages—which is why Howdy Doodles: A Coloring Book of Southern Drawls and Drawings is so very appealing. Comprised of high-quality Texas-centric illustrations from Dallas artists Will Heron, Shamsy Roomiani, Lily Smith-Kirkley and Rob Wilson, this nifty little book will keep you more than occupied adding artful shading to Lone Star bottles and cowboy hats. Pick up your copy (and a few more for gifting purposes) during the Howdy Doodles Coloring Book Launch from noon until 3 p.m. Saturday in the gift shop at the Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street. You can meet the artists, browse for stocking stuffers, and sip on the toasty warm beverages the Nasher folks will have on hand for visitors. This event is free, though regular admission applies to enter the sculpture center. See nashersculpturecenter.org for more information.
