Here is a table of contents you can use to navigate to a favorite type of coloring page if you are looking for something that has a cat theme or butterfly theme for example.
**Some of the coloring pages are missing on this page due to site changes. Will be re-updating them as soon as I can.
I’ve also taken some time to write a little bit about each page and the thought that went into the creation of the line artwork. If you are curious about why each drawing was created and want to know what inspired each piece, there will be a description below them.
I will also include some benefits of coloring pages for adults in relation to art therapy. I will cover how you can do art therapy almost anywhere and anytime.
The following are abstract coloring pages I created to be seamless in their style. All four artworks are tied to one another. If you look at all four drawings you can see a progression in the shape of the line drawings.
When I am creating these types of line drawings, which are non-subjective I listen to a lot of soothing music. I listen to Jazz, Blues, Classical, and Smooth R&B music. Occasionally I share the process of the line artworks on my Instagram Stories.

Some people like structure and balance. What do you like? Do you like when things are symmetrical or asymmetrical? These next few coloring pages were created with circular compositions.
I was inspired to create 100 circle drawings as a series but decided I would make 1,000 instead after watching a Pablo Picasso documentary on YouTube.
Did You Know This About Picasso?
During his lifetime he created over 45,000+ artworks; these were paintings, drawings, pottery and other forms of visual art.
His cubism style also inspired the fashion industry, architecture and even vehicle designs. This was also very inspiring to me as an artist and I now saw myself creating art for the rest of my life. Even if I never made 10,000 drawings during my lifetime. After watching that video, my life changed.
What I didn’t think about:
All 1,000 circles will most likely take me 10-15 years to complete at the rate I am going. Nevertheless, I am still working on creating more circle drawings I will be sharing later for more coloring pages.
Okay. In 2012 I started to develop a little fetish I am unashamed to share. I begin to fall in love with high heels. As a guy, it is not a common thing… At least I don’t think it’s common for most guys to express their love for heels.
I, on the other hand, everyone that knows me well know that I love high heels because I am always showing them my heels artworks.
High heels have been around for thousands of years and evolved in fashion over time. In fact, I wrote this in-depth article about fashion illustration and its history once. I learned a lot about the innovation of high heels throughout the years.
Love high heels?

The inclusion of expressive arts in therapy is one of the important approaches to the psychosocial and physical care of patients. This is also an important milestone in the increasing recognition of integrative approaches to reparation and recovery.
You Can Art Anywhere:
Art therapy is a portable form of therapy and one that can be practiced alone without the support of a therapist when necessary (though it’s always recommended to enlist the help of a professional art therapist whenever possible).
How This Collection Will Help You:
By using any of these pages to color, you can take a break from the overwhelming world of Social media or get a break from electronic devices, which is good. This can also help you concentrate better the more you do it. I’ve found that over time the more I do something the better I get at it.
For example growing up as a child my hands used to shake a lot when I drew lines, but the more I drew the better I got over time. Coloring on coloring pages is the same way. The more you color the better your sense of color harmony, color blending and control gets.
Subconsciously you even develop skills that you wouldn’t believe that you actually could. Focus and awareness of details around you also become sharper.
