WAVE is not your average coloring book. Once opened, it unfolds into a nine-foot-long panel, featuring a continuous and dream-like illustration by rock star contemporary artist Shantell Martin.
And this unique book also provides a blank canvas: After you add your splash of color, use the reverse side to create your own unfolding illustration, for a final product that s both inspired and inspiring.
WAVE will bring the art gallery to your living room, a perfect display piece and an opportunity for daring colorists to transform a piece of art in a whole new way."

Review quote

Martin s masterful line and wild imagination construct an inviting wonderland of whimsical creatures and psychedelic shapes, fusing the soft surrender of a dream with the active alertness of a jubilant hallucination. Maria Popova, Brainpickings
In the midst of an unprecedented wave of adults turning to coloring to ease their anxiety, artist Shantell Martin finds mindfulness in black and white. The Huffington Post"
