Hue Can Do It!: The No-Pressure, No-Judgment Coloring Book

From lettering to coloring! Our creative side is being challenged day by day. They make it easier for us to unleash our "wonderful" side. I say wonderful, because when we create, it only results to beautiful art; good or bad, I say we define our own creations, agree?(:

Different types of "adult" coloring book are popping out from every book store I enter. And honestly? They make me dizzy. Haha!(: I was about to purchase my own (worth P800 pa ha!) and as I browse to each page, it gave me a little headache. Nakakahilo! How can this hobby relax me when just by looking at it gives me a headache! So I was really happy when I found out about Hue Can Do It! and Hue Can Do It, Too! Honestly, it's the perfect coloring book for a young adult like me. (Ano daw? Young Adult, yes!) Hehe!(:

Gathering of great talents!

The book launch was held last weekend at Raffles, Makati (Ballroom 2) during The Philippine Literary Festival 2015. It gave all of us the chance to meet, greet and have our books signed by almost all of the 44 artists! Yes, forty-four creative minds came together to create this wonderful coloring journey!

The books which are published by Summit Books will include the amazing works of: Abi Dayacap, Abi Goy, Abi Montana, Alysse Asilo, Angela Taguiang, Apol Sta.Maria, Ariel Santillan, Asa Montenejo, Blic Pinas, Brent Sabas, Camille Chua, Camz Dagal, Clare Magno, Domz Agsaway, Electrolychee, Epjey Pacheco, Fran Alvarez, Frank Perez, Gica Tam, Harry Monzon, Isa Natividad, Jamie Bauza, Jap Mikel, Jaykee Evangelista, JP Cuison, Kay Aranzanso, Koi Carreon, Liza Flores, Manix Abrera, Mawee Borromeo, Mika Bacani, Nelz Yumul of Weewilldoodle, Nicole Lim, Paul Eric Roca, Paulo Correa, Pergy Acuna, Raine Sarmiento, Ray Sunga, Reg Silva, Robx Bautista, Rommel Joson, Sergio Bumatay III, Tasha Rye and Wiji Lacsamana. Whew! Did you spot your favorite artist already?(:

A HUGE Hue Can Do It! Coloring Book/Freedom Wall for the attendees! 

I'm so excited to start coloring!(:

Everyone was happy and excited to meet their favorite artist
Reg Silva signing my copy! Hello!(:

Hue Can Do It!

One thing I like about these books is that you can easily tear each page so you can frame them individually once you are done. I am honestly having a hard time choosing which ones to frame! I love that this coloring book convinced my husband to actually sit down and color! If you know him, he's not very patient with anything that involves a "pen". Haha!(: So trust me, this book is worth it! You will surely get hooked in no time!

Just a sample of what you can see/color inside!

Get creative! Get crazy! You control the pens which will give life to each page!

Hue Can Do It! and Hue Can Do It, Too! (P295/each)

Don't forget to follow @huecandoit on Instagram and feel free to post your creations and use the hashtags #HueCanDoIt and #HueCanDoItToo.

Also, watch out for another book which is set to hit the stands soon this September, Color Calm,  a magazine containing 56 lovely patterns which is originally published by Future Publishing in the UK and will be printed by Summit Books here in the Philippines. Exciting!!(:

Hue Can Do It!: The No-Pressure, No-Judgment Coloring Book


  1. What do you use to color? Me naman, I want to draw a coloring book, and not color. Weird ba?

  2. I don't remember the last time I colored something. I should give it a try again! And that huge colouring book display looks inviting!

  3. Ang cute ng title at ng concept! Adult colouring books are a hit today no? Sad that I don't enjoy colouring (I love drawing though).

  4. I haven't started coloring yet, laging walang stock sa bookstores :( I only have Colleen pencils. Yung iba ang daming tools!

  5. I have to start. I was able to buy one from National Bookstore Makati. It's the Monet. These are painting of Monet and you will have to either simulate or make your own. Challenging! Ha ha!

  6. I'm still wondering why they call it adult coloring books when it seems it can be used by kids too XD

  7. Wah! I want! Thanks for sharing this :) I just bought an dult coloring book worth 149 at SM stationery, but this looks cool :)

  8. Looks like these are currently the hype these days… pang-patanggal ng stress

  9. I've always wanted to try this. But not really an artistic person so I have to think twice before buying one :))

  10. I have been meaning to try this ever since it started! Pero hanggang ngayon hanggang tingin padin. hehe
