If you haven’t noticed, Sublime has expanded their sound to becoming a visual brand that goes beyond just producing music, posters and t-shirts. Among lighters, ashtrays, windshield covers, coffee mugs & wallets, you can now add an art-based coloring book to your growing Sublime collection…
The book includes 24 total illustrations including Sublime’s inconic 40oz to Freedom sun, as well as old flyers, cover-arts, t-shirt designs, and my personal favorite, the crying sun by artist Opie Ortiz; among others. All of the illustrations are in black & white to enable your own coloring customization and as a bonus, it comes with a sheet of temporary Sublime tattoos.
As the press release reads, “Like living with Lou-dog, coloring in this book is the only way to stay sane.”
Sublime is as much a visual brand as they are a band that changed the sound of music, creating a sub-genre while flying the flag of tattooed inspired artwork that became synonymous with their sound, style and attitude.
In addition to the coloring book, Sublime is rolling out with new socks, hats, tapestry, patches, t-shirts, flasks & shot glasses. You can also find a ton of various Sublime merchandise inside Spencers, Wal*mart, Target, but for this coloring book, you can only pick it up by clicking HERE!
