I created some pages of a colouring book which I would like to continue finishing in the near future. I wanted to create a colour therapy colouring book for prisoners to help them deal with their anger and emotions they face whilst they are in prison. I wanted the pages to be of everyday events they may have participated in before losing their freedom. I wanted the pages to give them comfort but also happy memories of the simplest of things they took for granted, but also to help them forget the troubles they are facing in jail even if it is only for an hour. I wanted the book to serve a purpose of helping prisoners get through their reapeated daily routine and give them a ‘happy place’ to look forward to when colouring the book.
