Live: A Pornographic Coloring Zine / :5 / $1.00 / 16S / Robin Hustle, C/O, Ruth O-R, 1334 W. Greenleaf, Apt. 3S, Chicago, IL 60626 /
Pretty much what the title suggests, Live is a coloring book that incorporates adult themes to the typically children-led field of coloring book. While more revolutionary coloring books have been commonplace since â€œMy Family, Your Family, Our Familyâ€ and â€œGirls Will Be Boys Will Be Girlsâ€, Live is the result of an individual that needed to foment this idea a little farther. Pictures found in this go around include a close-up of a vagina, a nipple being pinched, and a number of other seemingly-random drawings. These random drawings have absolutely no bearing on the static topic of this coloring book, unless Robin is working at a level beyond what I can possibly fathom. For example, one of these drawings has a fish looking at a high-heeled shoe. Fish-heel, fishy-shoe, I have no clue but at least the drawings are simplistic and warm. This warmness is shown most prominently by the imperfections present in each piece of art â€“ for example the claw-hammer in one of the later pieces has too hooked of a claw. Still, in functionality Live cannot be beat: it is a cheap (cost-wise, not quality-wise) zine that will provide the coloring individual in your family hours of fun. As a stand-alone zine it may seem a little random, but this is by no means your standard zine, and as such, shouldnâ€™t be compared. Pick up your box of crayons, open this puppy up and get to work â€“ the problems that life serves up to you will rapidly melt away!
