Enter The Colour Zone: Creating a Colouring In Book

Enter the Colour Zone : Creating a Colouring In Book is a project that Marc Sorbello began in 2020. Drawing on inspiration from 80s children’s television, as well as his own imagination, a 24-page book has been created, whose pages are full of images, as well as space for storytelling and creativity. The assemblage of handmade drawings comes alive with Marc’s stream of consciousness narration, which puts a stamp on his unique interpretation of literacy.
