Bored Panda 2020-02-14 16:24:31

If you’re like the team at Bored Panda, you spend a large portion of the week thinking about Jason Momoa. He’s cool. He’s charismatic. And who wouldn’t want to be as athletic as him? Well, there’s some great news for all of you Momoa fans out there: you can now spend some one-on-one time with the actor because artist Maurizio Campidelli released a coloring book featuring him in all of his glory.

“Crush and Color: Jason Momoa: A Coloring Book of Fantasies With an Epic Dreamboat”—that’s the coloring book’s title. It’s subtle, but see if you can spot where it goes slightly over-the-top. It took us a while to spot it, too.

Scroll down to check out some of the 35 line art drawings you can expect to color in the book. And when you’re done looking at Momoa’s bulging muscles in this post, check out our previous articles about the superstar here (Super Bowl ad), here (pink Elvis costume), and here (Esquire photoshoot).

The coloring book is full-on Momoa, from cover to cover. There’s a picture of him surfing. And another where he’s walking some dogs. And a whole bunch of other great drawings that will inspire you to start getting your body ready for the beach.

Hypothesis: gazing upon the manly visage of the actor who played Khal Drogo, Aquaman, and Conan the Barbarian takes away all of your stress and gets rid of all of the problems in your life because he beats them into submission.

Fact: most coloring books for adults are good for your wellbeing (even if not all of them feature our savior, Momoa).

Coloring helps you focus and works like meditation

Bored Panda spoke with M.V., a psychologist working in the healthcare system in Lithuania, about the benefits of coloring and art therapy.

According to her, the importance of coloring books for adults lies in focusing on the action itself, zoning everything else out, and not letting yourself be distracted by anything else, like someone talking to you.

The psychologist also mentioned that art therapy is very beneficial to mental health, as well as an individual’s overall wellbeing. “Any therapy that is related to arts and crafts helps reduce a person’s psychological defense mechanisms, such as denial, lying, and others. What’s more, art therapy encourages relaxation.”

Meanwhile, according to the American Art Therapy Association, art therapy helps us “explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem.” Now, while coloring books don’t count as professional art therapy, they do provide some benefits.

Marygrace Berberian, a certified art therapist and the Clinical Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator for the Graduate Art Therapy Program at New York University, says that coloring has therapeutic potential. It can help reduce anxiety, “create focus or bring about more mindfulness.” Coloring’s similar to mediation in that it switches off our brains and makes us focus on the here-and-now, instead of overthinking things.

Momoa fans were really happy that the coloring book exists
