A satirical coloring book for grown-ups poking fun at the current trend of hashtag activism by Sonya Saturday

Socially-Conscious White Ladies Coloring and Activity Book pokes fun at the current trend of “hashtag activism.” The book features portraits of sexy White Ladies giving empty lip service to some of today’s major social issues.

Similar in style and tone to my previous work The 2016 Republican Presidential Candidates Coloring and Activity BookSocially-Conscious White Ladies also includes satirical drawings of supposedly “progressive” white female celebrities, plus funny and informative activities (like you’d find in a children’s activity book). And yes, some of the art will have a bit of nudity and mild sexuality. This is a coloring book for Grown-Ups.

Why I’m Doing This

I created these books because adult coloring books are an accessible, non-threatening way to poke fun at American culture. America is a wonderfully diverse country with a wide variety of identities and communities. Although we may have disagreements over the direction of the country, I very much believe in the USA’s ability to be a force for positive change for all its citizens and throughout in the world.

The Plan

My goal is to print and ship Socially-Conscious White Ladies by the end of November 2017.

  • $300 to print and ship the I Wish This Lady Would Shut Up poster from the printer
  • $100 to ship original artwork to backers

  • $500 for fees and other charges 
  • $550 for printing additional books and posters, and for unforeseen costs
