Ever have the urge to color birds in Devendra Banhart’s beard? Create hairstyles for the members of Rilo Kiley? Illustrate alternate cover art for The Dears’ Missiles? Well, now you can. The Indie Rock Coloring Book is a whimsically interactive way to experience your favorite indie rock artists, compiled by the Montréal-based nonprofit organization Yellow Bird Project.

I LOVE this idea! Adults spend too much time working and too little time coloring. That’s why we are always so stressed and depressed. If more of us took time to do something as simple as coloring some birds in Devendra Banhart’s beard, we would be a lot healthier and happier.  See guys, Indie music is looking out for your best interests. Way to go Indie music.

This is a great idea. Adults should see more colorful life and spend their free time creating. A very good article. Congratulations.
